Have you found an optimum group size when hunting moose? I know there are a lot of variables. For example, I don't take more than 6 others when I lead snowmobilers into the backcountry. Its just an easy number to keep track of, enough help to get a dead sled out, not too many different attitudes to deal with when under a stressful situation, etc.
I would have my cub and no time restrictions and don't care if I shoot anything on this trip. My dad is retired and would have minimal time restrictions and he is priority one for chance to fill a tag on this hunt. My dad and brothers or friends would be flying up from lower 48, then at least one and probably two more chartered flights before I would fly them to "camp" for roughly a 10 hunt. For now, I'm thinking we will be taking home about 100 lbs of meat per person and I will fly the remainder of meat to nearest locals. Cub will probably be on wheels and we may have a boat or at least a raft/s. I don't think we will be hunting more than a half mile away from water or plane. I will fly in the hazmat, so I don't plan on having to have a separate supply charter.
How many other shooters should I limit on this hunt?
What numbers make for efficient or economical travel from Anc/Fairbanks to camp and which plane?
What numbers make for good hunting and "enjoyable" splitting up the duties and getting moose out to plane?
