Hi everyone,

Well, I have decided that this is year that I will try my luck in Alaska. I have always wanted to hunt Moose in Alaska, and it looks like this will be the year for me to do it.

I was hoping that I could get some freindly advice from those of you who have experienced hunting in Alaska, particularly if you have hunted Moose there. I have done some research on a few operations in Alaska. I am considering doing a drop-camp hunt. I will be hunting with a freind.

Do any of you have experience/recommendations for a good hunting operation in Alaska? Any recommendations on areas would be very helpful also. I would prefer to do the hunt without a guide, but am I asking for trouble? Finally, what were the costs for those of you who have done this hunt?

I will also purchase a black bear tag in case I happen to see one while there. Based on the research I have done, it appears that the Moose areas and Caribou areas are quite different, so I have decided to focus on Moose this time.

Any help or advice would be very appreciated. I am excited for the hunt.

Take Care

Moose is not a guide required species. Only brown bear and sheep.

You idiot. :D :wink:
