For many hunters, Alaska often stands high on the list of their dream hunting destinations. This untamed State can offer some of the world’s biggest moose and bear as well as mountain goat, wild sheep and wolves. Hunting in Alaska will always mean something really special to the hunter who dreams of the ultimate wilderness adventure! The USA’s biggest State is around four times the size of Sweden and almost totally consists of wilderness. A hunt in Alaska is alway a real adventure. Even just getting to the hunting district can be an unforgettable experience, as it often involves using floatplanes, boats or snow scooters. Staying out in the wilds is always on nature’s own terms. Hunting here can be an incredibly enjoyable challenge, if you are successful the reward for your efforts is usually a really fine trophy. In Alaska it is possible to hunt for Alaskan moose, Alaskan brown bear, grizzly bear, black bear, caribou, mountain goat, dall sheep, wolf, wolverine and sika deer. Certain species can be hunted in the spring, for example, black bear, brown bear, grizzly bear and wolf, while the other species are hunted in the autumn. Not many outfitters use horses for transport, during the hunt, so a lot of hunting is done on foot, carrying a rucksack. It is therefore important that hunters are in good physical shape, so that they can comfortably handle the challenges the hunt will present. Some outfitters use ATV’s , and Pickups, got get around their hunting districts. It is possible to bring you own weapons here, but you should apply for a permit to import a weapon into the USA in good time. We are happy to help with this. Many outfitters also offer weapon hire to visiting hunters.
The weather in Alaska can vary a great deal, rain, storms, snow, and sunshine are all possible, so hunters should take care to pack the correct equipment and be well prepared to meet the conditions they are likely to meet during the time of year they visit. We will, of course, give you good advice on what to pack for your tour.
