ORIGINAL: Everyday Hunter
I didn't answer the poll because I've never used a bush plane for deer hunting, but I have for moose hunting. We flew 50 miles out into the bush. It's a little like an amusement park ride, without the feeling of safety.
We were permitted 50 pounds of gear (that included everything -- camping stove, tent, food, extra clothing, camera, etc.), plus what we were wearing and our rifles. Each Super Cub (we used two) hauled one passenger plus his gear. You sit wedged into the back seat with your knees on each side of the pilot and your gear behind you. The take-offs were fairly smooth, but the landings felt a little dicey. These little planes are very subject to wind, and on an Alaskan mountaintop you have to be careful that they don't get blown off. They're a little like a kite with an engine and balloon tires.
