    Default Hog River acess??

    I drew a hog river tag wondering if anyone knows of any charters into the area or if you have any suggestions on how to hunt this unit?

    Hog River..up on the Koyukuk? The airstrip is owned by a mining opperation (can't recall the name). I was in there in the 90's with a surveying outfit I worked with. I'm pretty sure we flew in with Wright Air Service out of Fairbanks. Might give them a call and see what they say.

    If it is the one on the Koyukuk it is a long boat ride but with the right planning it could be done. If my memory serves me correctly it is about 250 miles up the Koyukuk. Probably pass a lot of moose on the way there.

    I trapped one winter at the very head waters of the Hog River...that is way out in the middle of no where. You can get there by boat, but I don't know anything about ownership of lands there these days.

    Probably only 2 viable options for you.
    Fly out of Bettles...............Brooks Range Aviation or Bettles Lodge.
    Fly out of Galena..................Sportsmans Air or something like that.
    I believe there is float access to certain sections of river. There's a family living along the Hog, or used to be.
    Marty, did you run into Hog River Gary up there?
