Our first hunt of 2019 was a bison hunt with Dr. Scott Carmack of Zilla, WA. The hunt took place in March after the Copper River was frozen and safe for travel. The hunting was difficult this year due to a winter rainstorm which created a thick layer of ice that kept the bison from coming down to the river. We had to go high above the river but were rewarded with a nice bull on the third day of the hunt. Packing the meat and trophy out was logistically challenging but with the
help of my brothers, Shane and Willy, the four of us were able to finish the job in just one day. This is a once in a lifetime drawing hunt and I strongly encourage anyone who is interested in hunting truly wild, free-range bison to apply. The draw period begins November 1st and ends December 16th so act fast. Applicants must have an Alaskan hunting license. The hunt number is DI454.

Phillip Rhead of Poulsbo, WA. joined me for a bear hunt this spring near my home in the Wrangell Mountains. Phil had a great hunt and went home with two excellent trophies. The first was an ancient 6’8” black bear, taken at just 6 yards! The second was a beautiful 8’11” grizzly, the biggest we’ve taken yet!

This is a cabin based hunt with ATVs used to access the hunt area. These 7 Day hunts take place from mid-May to mid-June. I only take a couple of hunters each spring so be sure to reserve your spot early.

Our fall hunts take place in the Brooks Range of Alaska. This hunt is a true wilderness adventure based out of a fly-in traditional style wall tent camp. From the main camp, our trusty horses will take you even further into the mountains to a spike camp above timberline where sheep can often be spotted right from your tent. We offer 10-day sheep hunts in August and 12-day sheep, bear, and moose combination hunts in September.

I first stepped foot in this region 17 years ago. Thanks to good game management and conservation techniques perfected during a lifetime of hunting and guiding in Alaska, this area continues to produce quality animals year after year. This year was no exception. We harvested several nice mature rams including three over 10 years old. We also harvested two wolves, two wolverines, and an exceptional arctic grizzly.
