I have been reading the past raft posts and Mike Strahan's suggestions. Seems like most are angled towards guys on full blown dropoff float hunts. I know there are different uses and preferences and compromises. I have a few ideas, but also have a few more questions.
I am thinking a smaller raft that will let me cover a larger area around a moose basecamp or go do a spike camp a short distance away would be the main use as opposed to drop off float hunt. Tough to pick myself up at the other end and fly back out
Maybe with a small motor to speed things up at times for multiple loads. I talked to 4 guys that flew (not a cub) in two rafts for a moose/sheep hunt a couple years ago in the Brooks. I remember they said they put a wooden floor in them and had a small jet unit and oars. They looked like they were pretty heavy with two guys and a moose in one and two guys and two sheep and gear in the other. Now that I think about it more they may have made a couple trips each to get all that out, not sure. Anyway I don't remeber which rafts they had or how big the motor was.
I am looking for something that I can haul in my cub. Sometimes on solo hunts with the rest of my gear. Sometimes in group hunts I would ship it out cargo or with the other hunters and then just shuttle everything/one the last few miles in my cub.
Is this doable or am I dreaming? Suggestions (excluding buying a bigger plane)?
