Joey Klutsch, owner of Katmai Guide Service, which is based in King Salmon, has been a master guide in Alaska since 1992.
Joey was first registered as a Guide in 1980 and was awarded the Master Guide license in 1992.

Katmai Guide Service offers fully guided hunting on Federally approved land for brown bear, moose, mountain goat and Sitka Black-tail Deer on Kodiak Island.
Brown bear- and moose hunts can take place in Becharof National Wildlife Refuge (which lies on the southern border of Katmai National Park), Aniakchak National Monument and Meshik River Valley on the Alaskan peninsula.
Like the Alaskan peninsula itself, Kodiak offers a wonderful wildlife experience with a wonderful range of animal life including Kodiak brown bears, mountain goat and Sitka Black-tail. We hunt on both Federally approved land and privately owned districts.
The only way to reach these hunting districts is by plane, which is a spectacular experience in itself.
Huvud Camp is a traditional Alaskan style camp, which lies right on the coast. Here you will experience the wonderful local fauna which includes seals, whales, otters, foxes, eagles and many other species of bird. Here the spectacular coastal mountains bjerge meet the crystal clear sea, and here there are also plenty of fish, including halibut, cod, rockfish and crabs.
We will hunt the mountain goat over the many coastal mountains on foot. This hunt can be described as a traditional mountain hunt, but it will come to stand out as one of the most unforgettable hunts you ever do. It is also to possible to hunt Blacktail stags here.
The lush vegetation and sheer beauty of the hunting district make a great impression on every hunter lucky enough to visit here.
