Guided Hunting Trips (Combination Available)

Dall Sheep Hunts (Open Season: August 10th – September 20th)

No location is more challenging and more rewarding than capturing a trophy Dall Sheep in the steep terrain of the Alaskan mountains. This is truly a one of a kind sheep hunting experience. Come prepared – the better your physical conditioning, the more enjoyable the hunt.

Memberships and Guided Hunts (Open Season: September 1st – September 25th)

The Alaska-Yukon Moose is one of the most desirable trophies of all the Big Game species in Alaska. With up to 80 inches of horn and weighing up to 1,700 lbs, nothing is more magnificent than a giant bull moose.

Grizzly / Brown Bear Hunts (Open Season: ***all year)

Nothing beats the adrenaline rush when bagging an Alaskan grizzly bear! Our hunt area has been designated by Alaska Fish & Game as a predator control area, which allows us to book your hunt year round. The bears we bring out average 8.5 to 9+ feet. We hunt these bruins while feeding on our King Salmon run or spot & stalk in the mountains.

Black Bear Hunts (Open Season: ***all year)

We will take you on a custom black bear hunt, making hunting Alaskan black bear an unforgettable experience. Spot & stalk in the mountains, boat/raft hunts, and bait hunts are available.

Wolf / Wolverine / Predator Hunts


Wolves and wolverines are in no short supply in this part of wild Alaska. Along with the hunt, a trap line can be run in the winter, so the action will be plentiful.

Caribou Hunts (drawing only for non-resident hunters)


With long main beamed antlers that are massive and impressive along with their white manes, Alaskan caribou are remarkable in appearance and will make a great trophy for life.

Waterfowl / Ptarmigan / Duck Hunts (Season starts September 1st)


We invite you to escape to our Alaska where you will take part in phenomenal waterfowl hunting and sport fishing that only you as our guest will come to understand. Book your ticket now and be at the lodge no later than September 1st when the season opens!
