He has been in the business of guided moose hunts in Alaska for decades.
They have seen laws change, predator populations fluctuate, extreme weather conditions, etc., but they have always managed to maintain a 80% to 90% success rates on these trophy Alaska moose hunting trips, with an average antler spread of SIXTY inches.
Just moments after my guide and I agreed to move up the drainage, a moose materialized from the brush…. it looked like something from the ice age! Bigger than your SUV with antlers like two sheets of plywood.”
Moose hunting usually takes place during September, with some combo hunts stretching into early October.
You will rise early and typically glass from camp, eat a hot breakfast, and then hike to a high spot to glass all day or until you find a good bull. It will be stalking and calling from there. Hunters will also be doing a great deal of calling with their guide.
This Alaska moose hunting outfitter averages an 80% to 90% success rate yearly on trophy bulls up to, and some exceeding 60″.
He has planes in the air year-round scouting for game. During the sheep season, he flies over this prime moose area almost daily, so by the time moose season rolls around he knows where the trophy bulls live. This gives our clients a distinct advantage for good success when they show up.
Weather in Alaska is unpredictable. Be prepared and pack accordingly. You shouldn’t see any snow, but expect some rain & wind. Bugs are not usually an issue, but dope & headnets are provided when needed.
This Alaska moose hunt can be a combo hunt with grizzly bear, caribou and black bears. These species can be added to your moose hunt for additional trophy fees. We highly recommend having the extra tags in your pocket.
All trips are limited to one hunter with one guide per camp, unless the client requests otherwise, or the hunt is booked as a 2×1. After you tag your bull and take field photos, your moose is caped, quartered and butchered for packing to spot suitable for aircraft pick-up.
Your Alaskan hunting license and moose tags are over-the-counter.
Although this hunt is not physically difficult, hunters should be comfortable with hiking two to five miles a day in hilly country with elevations between 500′ and 2,000′
You will arrive in Anchorage, AK and then catch a flight to the lodge from there. All transportation to and from camps is provided by bush planes.
Very nice, remote base lodge that the hunters will arrive and depart from. Hunts will be in spike camps.
Lunch/trail food are carried by guide, hot meals in evening can be expected, hunters requests for particular types of food can usually be complied with.
You won’t be disappointed with the meals in camp. You should start fasting now as you won’t be able to push away from the table the food is so good. Don’t be surprised if you gain a few pounds.
In spike camp, you will have “Mountain House” camp meals. They are a lot better than military MRE’s. The variety of choices, lasagna, spaghetti, beef stroganoff, turkey, chicken, etc., will fill you up. Cookies and some dried fruit will fulfill your sweet tooth craving. Obviously you don’t have the same meals in spike camp you are treated to in the main lodge, none the less they are filling and welcome at the end of a long day of hunting and packing out your game.”
