If I ever draw an Oregon sheep tag, I will consider using one;)

Ya like those. Pretty cool I thought. I sure could have used one in ID when we used to elk hunt there.

I watched a show just a few nights ago, a few teams were racing across Alaska, and had to use pack rafts. The rafts couldnt been longer than 8 feet. A few guys dumped them on some pretty fast moving water. The small ones look really unstable.

This show is where I saw the pack rafts. Very cool

I've heard of some folks in Alaska that had good feedback hunting and packing using, Alpacka Rafts. https://www.alpackaraft.com/index.cfm/store.catalog?CategoryID=53

pack rafts are to small to hunt and haul gear. Small rafts are not. There is a difference. Also, just like any moving water sport, you will nead the right gear and knowledge. In the pack raft you will be sitting in water, make sure you are prepared for that.
check out the pumas from aire. small, flyable and can pack some weight.
