Just out of curiosity, how much does it typically cost for a fly in hunt for sheep, or caribou?
Thats way to vague of a question. How far do you want to fly? How much weight do you want to bring? What kind of plane? Where will you fly out of? It's endless... you could spend 500 to more than 3000 per man. If you provide some more info the members here can give you some better numbers.
I'll have to wait until I'm too old and decrepit to hike in before I'm able to afford to fly out.
That's why they are flying. (And to figure out where the sheep are so they don't have to look once they get on the ground). Be ethical. Walk in.
Haha thanks. I was a little less than serious about the trip in, but is that what you mean by a back haul... catch a ride back in when the pilot drops off a party? Seems like that would be ideal if one were to actually kill something, and fairly nice just the same if he didn't. Like a cat up a tree, it seems like I could hike a lot further out than I'd like to hike back in with a sheep on my back.
Of course, I can also see how a transporter wouldn't want to be picking up a hunter as he dropped off a party... since they'd probably like to be under the impression that they were going to an empty spot.
