I am in my initial planning stages for hunting Koyukuk I was lucky enough to draw DM828 5-14 September moose hunt. I would like to run my 21 ft jetcraft extreme shallow xs 200hp optimax inboard jet down the yukon from the bridge.Not sure on my limitations for hauling capacity but I would have a party of two,camp,gear, etc and be hauling some fuel and probably stop by every village to re top off so that I am not overloaded and putting two much strain on the boat.Then my last stop Galena purchase 200 gallons plus which should get me up to the hunting grounds and back to Galena where I would air charter meat etc back to Fairbanks.How much fuel should I keep on hand at all times?
With this scenario would I be better off flying to Galena and renting a boat? Not even sure of availabilty of rental boats or other options.Would like to hear how others would approach this. Is anybody interested in running down together for added insurance? Also how long does it take to run from the bridge to the mouth of the koyukuk?
Thanks, BIG 27
