The regulations state you may not hunt the day of your fight into a drop camp. My question is if the transporter offers a move of your location do you lose another day of hunting. The reason I ask is because I watched a clip where a guy on a sheep hunt relocated after killing his ram and went strait to hunting.
He was after bear and caribou.

From the AK regs:

Same day airborne:
It is against the law to hunt or help someone else take big game until 3:00 a.m. the day following the day you have flown. This does not apply if you have flown on a regularly scheduled commercial or commuter airplane. EXCEPTIONS:
• You may hunt deer the same day airborne (provided you are 300 feet from the airplane).
• In Units 7, 9, 11-13, 14A, 14B, 15-21, 23-25, 26B, and 26C black bears may be taken at permitted bait stations the same day you have flown, provided you are at least 300 feet from the airplane. In Units 7, 11-13, 14A, 14B, 15-16, 18,
19A, 19D, 20A, 20B, 20C, that portion of 20D north of the Tanana River, 20E, 20F, 21C, 21D, 23, 24C, 24D, and 25D, brown bears may be taken at permitted bait stations the same
day you have flown, provided you are at least 300 feet from the airplane. Same day airborne take is not allowed on National Park Service lands.
From Aug 10-Sept 20, aircraft may only be used by and for sheep hunters to place and remove hunters and camps, maintain existing camps, and salvage harvested sheep. A person may not use or employ an aircraft to locate sheep or direct hunters to sheep during the open sheep hunting season.
