I doubt transportation would be considered assisting hunters. The hunters are deciding where they want to be, not the pilot.
Just a taxi ride!
And you pay for a taxi. Hence a commercial service on Public Lands. Any commercial activity on public lands needs a permit.
The managing agency needs to manage use to avoid tragedy of the commons or adverse environmental impacts. Plus the owners of the land (us) need their cut for the commercial use of public lands.

Would it be considered "commercial activity" to pay a private helicopter to drop off a private individual or two thou? By definition I would not think so. You would have to wait 24hrs from the time you were dropped off till you hunt by state law.

Depends on the agency.
But are they doing it for profit? Or as a commerical business? Are there fees being charged? Likely so.
Or is it a good buddy who has a helicopter and you're just buying gas? Kinda like driving around the woods in a buddies truck. Likely not.
Kinda like that fine line between taking a buddy fishing in your boat and guiding. Is there money (or other items of value) being exchanged or costs just being shared?
Best answer is to call the agency where you're planning on landing the helicopter and ask to speak to their permitting person. Every agency and individual handles it a bit different.

No sir! Commercial airport. The forest would have meant a crash happened!
I think that is the determinate, but does a copter really land if they don't touch down? I would say not.

Square, I was gonna say the same. The question is so vague, you can only speculate about any of the information. And speculation gets heated discussion!
Who got the ticket? What state? Were you trespassing on the private? What were you hunting? What were you driving? What rifle were you packing? What glass? Will it be for sale now that you can't use it?
C'mon Man! We need answers!

Wow, is this thread still going? No reply from the OP on the situation or if it was just a perception of how private to public access works. They didn't mention helicopters or outfitters.

I'm guessing likely it was as one poster said earlier, someone buffaloing someone on what is and isn't legal so they can have it to themselves. Also NF and wilderness have different fly rules. Think it had to do with removal, the powers that be considered long lining to an animal on the ground touching down. Panties were wadded about it.

The OP has been back several times since posting this thread but I guess he doesn't feel to need to comment further?
