    Boat into Frank Church ?

    Looking for any info on anyone you has ever boated into the the FC for mule deer in Nov?

    Been into the Frank via Airplane several times and I am not a fan of flying.

    Not wanting to take my own boat but more looking to see if anyone knows any transportation services that provide this .

    Thanks

    I have floated the middle fork half a dozen times, and the main a couple times. Shoot me your questions. These rivers do have alot of regulations on them. Some you have never dreamed of. Ie packing your feces out with you.

    I would think there are some guides that could help with your questions or take you if that’s an option
    I go to the Mountains to loose my mind and find my soul.

    I planned a trip to get flown into one of the remote airstrips. I had everything lined up and planned with maps printed and everything. Then my buddies found out there were Grizzlies and wolves and all backed out.

    I would still like to do it. But I need some friends with "true grit" lol.

    From what I read we would have been lucky to have killed anything. It is my understanding that its not what it used to be.

    Grizzlies in the Frank?... not that I ever heard of while I guided in there for 3 years. Wolves, of course, but they will be anywhere you go in Idaho. .. as to the OP question, I personally would fly into a strip before wanting to boat in November. That weather can get nasty quick, and there is nothing warm about being on the river that time of year.. maybe from the riggins side you can find a boat to take you up, but remember there are lodges who are outfitters that have horses hunting that stuff, and they don't hunt from the river bottom for a reason. Unless you get lucky with a pile of snow, deer won't be down low still and you will have a long ways uphill to go to get into good numbers of animals IMO.

    Interesting I didn?t think there were grizzlies in there . We have flown in the last several years and killed pretty nice bucks . Didn?t see any wolves or grizzlies . Like I said just not a big fan of flying
