Generally, you can fly over forest service land, but you are not allowed to land your heli. I suppose if you wanted to get all "A-Team", you could jump out with all your swag. But regardless, I'd say that totally disrespects the reservation and their laws and beliefs.

But even then, most Heli's operate at around $800/hr. When you factor in higher elevations with multiple people, boats, and gear, you are looking at multiple heli laps.

I agree with Force- Take some bruises and earn your turns. You'll be a better person for it.

Horses, from the West side

The horse packers we talked to in Pinedale a few years ago said they "might" be able to carry kayaks on pack horses all the way up the Titcomb Lakes trail from the end of the Fremont Lake road. That would be the meeting point with the outfitter. The one guy who gave us the most info said we'd probably have to hoof it ourselves over Bonney Pass between Gannett Peak and Mt. Warren. About 1 1/2 miles of serious uphill, then all mostly downhill to the upper N. Fork, around 3 1/2 to 4 miles. Lots of rocks, not much chance to drag boats. Price was $350 per pack horse, no riding.
It's not a bad way to go. We've done the upper South Fork Shoshone that way twice, leading horses carrying two kayaks all the way in to the put-in, around 15 miles in. The outfitter lived in Dubois, WY. I carried my paddle and led a horse, that was it. Well worth the dinero to save the back. That was $200 a horse, and we paid for two extra horses to carry our soft gear.

So many rivers, so little time..........

Yeti - I believe the Little Wind has been run by some Jackson paddlers. The reports actually sound really good (bedrock gorges & waterfalls), but the run is on reservation property and they don't allow paddling.
