With demand for hunting and fishing at an all time high, finding open spots in 2021 is nothing short of challenging. We are seeking these openings on a daily basis and while many of our outfitters are full or near full we still keep checking to ensure we are aware of any new opportunities, changes, or cancellations. Oftentimes these hunts sell as fast as we can publish them. Please keep that in mind if these are of interest to you. Availability is subject to change quickly. Please contact us at your earliest convenience if you are interested in any of the Alaskan hunts listed below. Remember, these are all vetted, tried, and certified, Hosted Hunts outfitters with proven track records and quality reputations. We wouldn’t send you where we wouldn’t go ourselves.
This hunt is with a small operation taking only 8 to 12 caribou hunters per year while boasting a long record of 100% success. Hunts are from established spike camps and this outfitter uses Argo’s to cover expansive terrain. Currently we have one available spot and could potentially book 2 in one group. There is also a fairly good chance that we can book a couple more hunters depending on a moose allocation scheduled for July 7th. If you want to be on the waiting list for these hunts if/when they become available, please let us know. These would be 2×1 hunts, preferably booked in pairs.
Alaskan Caribou Dates: August 23-29, 2021
This outfitter has been guiding moose hunters in this area for an 24 years and has successfully guided several hundred hunters over that time frame. He carefully manages his “guide use” area to spread out the harvest from year to year maintaining both quality and quantity of animals. his hunting area amounts to approximately 1 million acres and contains over 200 miles of river to hunt along. This hunting area is a truly remote wilderness area; it requires a two-hour flight in a Cessna or Beaver to reach the hunting camps from Fairbanks. It is an exceptionally scenic area, especially during the hunting seasons. The hunting is done from canoes along the river itself or from large lakes. The canoes are motorized, and your camp is portable meaning you will be able to move as necessary. You can expect to find a good number of bulls (1 or 2 per day) and a number of cows with calves during a typical hunt. You will be looking for 60″ or better bulls, and the majority of hunters take bulls in the high 50’s to mid 60’s each season, with the occasional bull taken in the high 60’s from year to year. The fishing is also great, especially for northern pike, sheefish, and arctic grayling.
Alaskan Moose Dates: September 5-14, 2021
Alaskan Brown Bear
This same outfitter listed above also has an opening for a fall Brown Bear Hunt. He has been hunting the Peninsula since 1997. Hunters in the fall have seen as many as 15 bears in a day! He is targeting mature bears of 9 foot plus and has taken his share of 10 foot bears through the years. You will need to arrive in King Salmon or Cold Bay by commercial flight, after which you will fly will by smaller aircraft to the hunting area. Walking and glassing are the primary means for hunting and stalking from day to day. On fall hunts bears are feeding daily on the spawning salmon, recently arrived from the saltwater. In the evening, bears come down from the surrounding mountains to the streambeds and head back up the hillsides in the early morning, so the largest and often wisest bears are often taken at first or last light. Portions of the Alaska Peninsula have remarkable bear populations due to a very successful management strategy that allows for limited season lengths on alternating years and conservative guide-related harvest levels through Federal guiding concessions. It is also possible to hunt waterfowl on the Fall hunts. You can choose between a 10 or a 15 day hunt.
10 Days (Oct 7-16/Oct 12-21)
15 Days (Oct 7-21)
Brooks Range Dall Sheep
Here is another family ran operation focused on quality over quantity. With the Canada closure, good sheep hunts are particularly hard to come by. A client did not send his deposit in time and this hunt is now open for the taking. This sheep hunt takes place in the Arctic on the north slopes of the famous Brooks Range, the northernmost mountain range in the world. This is a physically demanding backpack-style hunt in the heart of incredible country. The Brooks is once again producing some very good rams. In addition, hunters can take caribou and grizzly bears on a harvest fee basis with applicable tags.
Dates: August 10-19, or August 20-20, or September 3-14
