This is a fun moose hunt and a great experience. The hunt is physically demanding and we recommend you allow yourself 10 full days of hunting to help insure you have an adequate amount of time to harvest a quality bull. Packing out a bull is almost always a multi-day event and will be one of the hardest things you ever do. You must be in shape!!”
Alaska Fish and Game wants more moose harvested from the area and has liberalized the season to any bull during the entire month of September. This is excellent for our hunters because they can hunt the last two weeks of September when the rutting activities are much higher. This hunt is typically 8 – 12 days, but most hunters tag out and come home early. Early pickups are always dependent on weather and opening in the schedule.
The hunters who are successful get up before light, eat breakfast, and hunt hard all day. They eat lunch in the field, and return to camp after dark to eat diner. The day should consist of glassing and calling, while paying close attention to the wind direction. These areas are very conducive to calling and we recommend that you buy videos and learn to call before coming. This will go a long way toward the successful outcome of your trip.
Keep in mind, packing a moose is very physically demanding and is not for the weak or physically disabled. Most of the areas are 30% – 50% black spruce with meadows and tundra ponds. Walking on the tundra is far more difficult than walking on flat firm ground.
