We specialize in fully guided hunts for trophy Dall Sheep, Grizzly Bear, Moose, Caribou and Wolf.
Our Hunts: Our hunts are conducted in remote, game rich areas of the majestic Brooks and Alaska Ranges. We currently hold 2 exclusive guide use permits representing vast hunting areas in the Brooks Range within the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. We also offer outstanding Grizzly bear hunts near the foothills of the Alaska Range. Hunts are conducted on a one guide per hunter basis (1x1) unless previously rranged or otherwise noted. All guides are licensed professionals who will do their utmost to see to your safety and success in obtaining the trophy of a lifetime.
Alaska Dall Sheep Hunts: Many hunters consider the Dall Sheep to be the ultimate North American big game trophy. Our Brooks Range hunting areas offer breathtaking scenery and unsurpassed wilderness qualities along with high densities of trophy class Dall Rams. Due to its remote nature the Brooks receives much less hunting pressure than other mountain ranges in Alaska, which has resulted in many of the state's largest rams taken in recent years. Typical horn lengths of the rams in our area range from 36"-39" with some reaching 40" and beyond. These are backpack style hunts originating from remote drop off locations near prime sheep habitat. Occasionally, rams can be taken right from these initial base camps. However, in most cases we travel throughout the surrounding country, camping at various locations along the way until rams are located. Despite utilizing the highest quality lightweight gear and freeze dried foods, packs can still be quite heavy. Hunters must be willing and able to share part of this load in addition to their own personal gear. This of course applies to the meat, cape, and horns on the return trip as well.

Having personally guided Sheep hunters for nearly 30 years I cannot overemphasize the importance of limiting your personal gear and clothing to the bare essentials. Equally important is being in the best physical condition possible and able to shoot well under a variety of circumstances. Most shots are around 200 yards or so but we have taken many rams much closer. Nevertheless, you should be able to hit consistently out to 300 yards and occasionally even longer shots are required due to lack of cover and the extreme wariness of sheep. These hunts can be both physically and mentally demanding and are certainly not for everyone. However, hunters who are prepared to do what it takes will truly be rewarded with the experience of a lifetime.
Alaska Grizzly Bear Hunts: Our Fall Grizzly Bear hunt takes place in the Alaska Range and is one of the best in all of Alaska. Large numbers of Grizzlies arrive in our area during late fall to take advantage of a run of spawning Chum salmon. At times the numbers can be staggering. We have seen as many as 21 different bears the first day of our hunt, all concentrated on a stretch of river less than 2 miles long! Admittedly, this is very unusual even for us but it demonstrates the potential of the area and hunters can expect to see several trophy bears within the first few days of their hunt. We have taken numerous bears that qualify for the SCI and Boone Crockett record books.

Hides will generally square between 7'-8 ½'. We have taken 3 bears with hides squaring over 9'. I have 2 comfortable and safe 8x12 frame cabins in this area, one on each side of the main fish spawning activity. The largest Grizzly Bear ever killed in recorded history was taken less than ½ mile from one of these cabins in 1998. One of my hunters also killed the All Time World Record Handgun SCI Grizzly in 2006.
These bears are extremely wary and may become nocturnal or leave the area completely if pressured. Therefore, in an effort to keep human scent to a minimum, we hunt only the most productive hours of the day. The oldest and largest bears tend to come out just before dark and this is when we try to anticipate their movements. We have had some success hunting early morning as well. Anyone in reasonably good health can participate in these hunts, as the walking is all relatively flat and distances less than 1 mile. Magnum calibers of .300 or larger are ideal for Grizzly, with bigger being better, provided hunters are comfortable with the recoil and can shoot them well. Quality partition bullets such as Nosler or Swift A-Frame are also strongly recommended. Most shots are less than 150 yards.
Caribou/Wolf Hunts: We offer Caribou and Wolf in combination with our primary species hunts. Caribou can be combined with Dall sheep, Moose, or Grizzly. We hunt the Porcupine Caribou herd, which has a population of approximately 120,000animals. At times, they can be quite numerous. Wolf can be taken on most of our standard hunts.
The spring Grizzly hunt in our salmon spawning area can be an excellent opportunity to take a Wolf. They are encountered on nearly every trip and we have had hunters take 1-3 Wolves most years.

Alaska Moose Hunts: Float hunting for Moose on one of Alaska's remote rivers can be a fantastic opportunity to take a trophy class bull. The solitude, constantly changing scenery, and excellent camping conditions make these some of the most enjoyable trips we offer. Excellent fishing for Arctic Grayling is usually available as an added bonus. Moose hunting tends to pick up toward the middle of September when the larger bulls become active and are more responsive to calling efforts.
Aside from getting charged by an irate Grizzly, there are few hunting situations that can offer the heart pounding excitement of a 1500 pound bull Moose crashing through the timber in response to one of our calls! Most Moose are taken very close to the river, which minimizes the grueling chore of packing these massive animals back to the raft. Over the many years we have hunted this species, most bulls taken have exceeded 60 inches in antler width, with a few reaching 70 inches and over. The same magnum calibers and partition type bullets recommended for Grizzly bear will work well on Moose. Again, shots are almost always under 150 yards.
Accommodations:Camps consist of lightweight mountaineering tents, custom arctic oven tents, or permanent frame cabins depending on the area and species sought. All equipment is of the highest quality available and upgraded on a regular basis. Home-style meals are provided whenever practical. On backpack or float hunts where weight and bulk are more of a concern, meals are not as elaborate but are tasty and satisfying nevertheless.

Transportation: We utilize Super Cub, Helio Courier, and float equipped Cessna 185 aircraft to access our camps, landing on primitive gravel strips or area lakes. Aircraft condition and pilot proficiency are maintained to the highest standards.
Success Rate:Despite the many variables that can affect the outcome of a hunt, we have consistently maintained a success rate of nearly 100% for all primary species throughout our career. We invite you to compare our level of experience, areas, trophy quality, and overall attention to detail to that of other Alaskan outfitters.
