We are Committed to Making Your Hunt the Hunt of a Lifetime!
So what goes into preparation for your Alaska hunt? Start with a first rate guide staff and we have one of the best in the state. Then add in planning and pre-hunt preparation. In our Wrangell Mountain area it takes the following equipment.
1 semi truck, 3 pickups, 2 horse trailer, 2 cargo trailers, 1 skid steer, farm tractor 1 station wagon, 2 airplanes, 13 horses, 30 pack and riding saddles 15 tents.
Next add 1,000 gallons of aviation gas, 12,000 pounds of horse feed just for the hunt and 90,000 for the year. Plus 2,000 pounds of groceries. Add in all the labor and parts bills for the equipment, horse shoeing and vet bills for the animals. While Kelly is taking care of the machinery, tack and animals Linda is running the office, finding the money to keep everything going, advertising, banking, insurance administrator and permit coordinator. For a good part of the year Linda is the company expediter and event planner.
An important part of our pre-hunt preparations is attending meetings for game management, land management and guiding regulations meetings to insure you have an opportunity to hunt in our great state. You can see we are committed to the job of providing the best preparation and implementation we can for your hunt.

Weather induced delays are not my responsibility. Safety for you, my employees and myself is the #1 priority. Weather delays happen, always have, always will, relax.
Your Hunting Expectations
We know you want a big Alaska Yukon Moose /Alaska Brown/Grizzly bear. A common scenario is that you really want a 65″ moose, but you will take a 55″ on the last day or two rather than go home empty handed. If a 55″ will do on the last day, why wouldn’t it be good enough on the 2nd day? If you truly do want a 65″, why shoot a 55″? It’s not what you want.
Trophy Preparation and Shipping
It is much easier on everyone if you plan on using D&C Expediters (907-344-9719). We will get you trophies to them as time permits. Speaking of D&C you have to call them, you need to know what to expect to pay for their services, their billing procedures, etc.
You, not me, need to call a meat processor in Anchorage and give them your credit card number and instructions for processing and shipping any meat you may wish to send home. We have used and recommend Alaska Sausage:
