Welcome to Arctic Alaska Guide Service!
For nearly 30 years we have provided sportsmen with some of the finest big game hunting and wilderness experiences Alaska has to offer. We specialize in fully-guided hunts for trophy Dall Sheep, Grizzly Bear, Moose, Caribou and Wolf.
Our hunts are conducted in remote regions of interior and arctic Alaska. Our Brooks Range territory includes 2 exclusive guide use areas within the famous Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Only a handful of Alaskan outfitters are permitted to operate on Refuge land after a very stringent and competitive selection process administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Our ANWR concessions alone represent literally thousands of square miles of pristine wilderness offering exceptional hunting opportunities for our clients. This can be an important consideration in light of the extreme overcrowding of guides, which is occurring throughout much of Alaska today.
We utilize Super Cub, Helio Courier, and float equipped Cessna 185 aircraft to access our camps, landing on ridges, gravel bars or area lakes. Aircraft condition and pilot proficiency are maintained to the highest standards.
Hunts are conducted on a one guide per hunter basis (1×1) unless previously arranged or otherwise noted. All guides are appropriately licensed and will do their utmost to see to your safety and success in obtaining the trophy of a lifetime.
We invite you to compare our level of experience, areas, trophy quality, and overall attention to detail to that of other Alaskan outfitters. Then, give us a call and become one of our many satisfied clients and friends who continue to hunt with us year after year.
Float hunting for Moose on one of Alaska’s remote rivers can be a fantastic opportunity to take a trophy class bull. The solitude, constantly changing scenery, and excellent camping conditions make these some of the most enjoyable trips we offer. Excellent fishing for Arctic Grayling is usually available as an added bonus. Moose hunting tends to pick up toward the middle of September when the larger bulls become active and are more responsive to calling efforts.
Aside from getting charged by an irate Grizzly, there are few hunting situations that can offer the heart pounding excitement of a 1500 pound bull Moose crashing through the timber in response to one of our calls! Most Moose are taken very close to the river, which minimizes the grueling chore of packing these massive animals back to the raft. Over the many years we have hunted this species, most bulls taken have exceeded 60 inches in antler width, with a few reaching 70 inches and over. The same magnum calibers and partition type bullets recommended for Grizzly bear will work well on Moose. Again, shots are almost always under 150 yards.
Many hunters consider the Dall Sheep to be the ultimate North American big game trophy. Our Brooks Range hunting areas offer breathtaking
scenery and unsurpassed wilderness qualities along with high densities of trophy class Dall Rams. Due to its remote nature the Brooks receives much less hunting pressure than other mountain ranges in Alaska, which has resulted in many of the state’s largest rams taken in recent years.
Our Fall Grizzly Bear hunt takes place in the Alaska Range and is one of the best in all of Alaska. Large numbers of Grizzlies arrive in our area during late fall to take advantage of a run of spawning Chum salmon. At times the numbers can be staggering. We have seen as many as 21 different bears the first day of our hunt, all concentrated on a stretch of river less than 2 miles long! Admittedly, this is very unusual even for us but it demonstrates the potential of the area and hunters can expect to see several trophy bears within the first few days of their hunt. We have taken numerous bears that qualify for the SCI and Boone Crockett record books.
We offer Caribou and Wolf in combination with our primary species hunts. Caribou can be combined with Dall sheep, Moose, or Grizzly. We hunt the Porcupine Caribou herd, which has a population of approximately 120,000animals. At times, they can be quite numerous. Wolf can be taken on most of our standard hunts.
The spring Grizzly hunt in our salmon spawning area can be an excellent opportunity to take a Wolf. They are encountered on nearly every trip and we have had hunters take 1-3 Wolves most years.
