Hunting in Alaska
From 10th August to 20th September
Alaska offers a variety of hunting oppor-tunities, many of them with World Class trophies. Some species, such as caribou, elk, or dall sheeps which are widely distributed throughout much of the state. However, depending on the month, animals can be scarce even where there is a good habitat, but abun-dant elsewhere. Many large game species in Alaska make long migrations among their seasonal ranges.
With a fifth of the size of the entire United States, Alaska offers hunting op-portunities that are found in few places in the world. It is true that there are huge moose here and that vast herds of caribou dominate the landscape in some areas and seasons. Numerous mountain ranges support populations of Dall sheeps and rams, and Sitka black-tailed deer thrive in coastal forests. Once extirpated from the state, the muskox now extends over the desert of the western and arctic coast. Here there are also large amounts of bear, both black and brown. And wolves, which are found in most parts of the state, are also abundant in some areas.
Plan your flight to arrive in ANCHORAGE two days before your hunt begins and your departure from Anchorage two days after your hunt is scheduled to be over. Purchase airline tickets that ar-flexible to change in the event that you finish before or event of bad weather or some unforessen circumstance.
We hunt sheep in the Alaska Range from 10th August to 20th September. Our partner’s guiding concession gives us access to some great country that is out of reach to all other guides. You do not need to draw a tag to hunt sheep in this area. This sheep hunts are backpack hunts which take us into some remote and spectacular areas. Additional animals can be added to your sheep hunt for those with the time and energy.
