Success rates and trophy quality are both excellent on this DIY moose hunt in Alaska.
The genetics in the area are excellent and so is the food source which makes for a healthy growing moose population. Any bull can be taken in this area of Alaska, however the average moose in his prime will be upper 50″ – mid 60″ range Success rates on the unguided Alaska moose hunts are around 75% with an opportunity rate of 90%-100% depending on the year. These numbers are amazing considering this is a DIY moose hunt.
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.

Unguided, DIY Moose Hunting Season and License Information
This is an over-the-counter Alaska moose tag. 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.
There are some combo opportunities on this moose hunt as well.
Hunters can hunt black bear, wolf and wolverine at no additional cost as long as they have purchased the tags before going into the field. We haven’t had many hunters kill bears or wolves, but we have had a few. It is best to have that tag in your pocket than to not have it and need it.
Fly Alaska Airlines from Anchorage to Bethel where you will be met by one of the outfitters’ staff. They will help make necessary arrangement from the time you arrive in Bethel until you depart. If you stay overnight in Bethel, the typical lodging expense is around $95 per person per night.
Since this is a fly-in DIY moose hunt, you can either provide all of the gear and food (most hunters ship it up ahead of time), or the outfitter will rent you the equipment you need and sell you the food you will take.
