Alaska-Yukon moose are the largest subspecies of moose in the world, and inhabite the low-lying river bottoms and foothills around the base of the Alaska Range. Bulls can weigh up to 1600 pounds, and have antlers that span nearly 80” across. Moose are a true sight to see on the ground, and a humbling experience for many.
Our season runs from the 1st – 20th of September, which corresponds to the beginning of the rut. We mainly utilize comfortable tent-style drop camps accessed by airplane or ATV from the lodge. Bulls in our hunting area average 60” – 65” across with 5 – 7 brow tines common. As with the majority of the greater Yukon River drainage, our hunting area has historically produced bulls over 70”.
Hunting is spot and stalk with much of the time spent glassing and calling as moose are very responsive to calls. Our guides are experienced at judging and calling, and knowledgeable in the terrain and habits of bulls. Hunters need to be in good physical shape for a moose hunt, as walking in the brush and swamp is very physically demanding.
