Alaska Big Game Hunting for Black Bear, Brown Bear, Grizzly Bear, Blacktail Deer, Mountain Goat, Moose or Wolf Welcome to Lonesome Dove Outfitterswhere you will find honest and sincere people providing you with a memorable Alaskan hunt. We are not based out of a lodge or from a boat, but instead we operate out of comfortable tent camps which we move frequently to keep you in the best hunting areas for the given time and game movements. The slight sacrifice in comfort of this type of hunting is more than made up for in the quality and quantity of game you will encounter.
We do not over-hunt our areas and only book a limited number of clients per year. There are currently more Hunting Guides licensed in Alaska than ever before, so you have a lot to choose from. Make this choice wisely. You are investing a great deal of time and money to come to Alaska and hunt, and there is a huge variety in the service you will get. Unfortunately some Outfitters you may encounter are far better salesmen than they are hunting guides, and you will have to be able to tell the difference.
Lonesome Dove Outfitters provides the hunter with an outstanding Alaska hunting experience. Whether you use a rifle or a bow, whether you hunt for Black Bear, Brown Bear, Grizzly, Blacktail Deer, Mountain Goat, Moose or Wolf.
Brown Bear/Moose: combination hunts for Brown Bears with Moose, Black Bears, Mountain Goats or Blacktail Deer, depending on the time of year. Our early spring and late fall hunts are geared toward trophy bears and are for 10 full days. The spring hunts run from April 20 - May 20 and are combined with a Black Bear at no additional charge other than the tag fee. The late fall hunt runs Oct. 15 - Nov. 5 and is done in combination with a Blacktail Deer for no additonal charge. This timing allows for premium hide quality and gives us enough time to find a large bear. Calling can work very well at this time. The September hunt runs from Sep. 3rd - Sept 13.
The Hunt Includes: 1 on 1 guiding service, trophy and meat care, and all meals and lodging while in the field. Clients are responsible for their tags and licences, in town meals and loding if necessary, and charter costs to and from the field. I only take 4 or 5 clients per year for both spring and fall, so each hunt is specifically designed to be in the most productive area for the timing of the hunt. This is Alaska at it's finest and you will have a hunt to remember!
Mountain Goat Hunting: 6-day combination hunt for Mountain Goat and Black Bear. Hunting season runs Sep 15 - Oct 15. These hunts take place in Prince William Sound, in some of the most beautiful country Alaska has to offer. If you like taking photographs, bring plenty of film. While we cannot guarantee a kill, we can boast of 100% success on Mountain Goats and 80% on Black Bears since we started hunting it. This includes archery hunts as well. Goat hunting is probably the most physically demanding of all big game hunting, and the quality of the hunt will very much depend on the physical condition of the client.
