    Wapiti River Ballot Block

    G'day guys, now it's that time of year on the forum where everyone starts asking for advice on the Wapiti blocks, so I may as well go first!
    We have Wapiti River first period, I'm interested to know any info on access, I know we could could choppered into the South end of the block as it's outside the wilderness area but I'm thinking of taking my boat up to the end of north west arm/middle fiord with a dinghy strapped across the back, ad walking the dinghy over into lake Hankinson, using the dinghy to take gear up to the Hankinson Hut and fly camping from there. Am I on the right track? Will this be Do-able? Will probably hunt the South west of the block for the first few days before heading up into the north western part of the block to hunt the divide bordering the Edith River block. Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    I also have this block but 2nd period. Would be keen to chat about your plans further down the track. Are you sharing with another party?
