Description: This outfitter hunts federally permitted lands on the Alaska Peninsula which encompass the Becharof National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska Peninsula Wildlife Refuge, and the Aniakchak National Preserve.
These areas are part of the Aleutian Mountain Range bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the north Gulf of Alaska on the east and the Bearing Sea on the west. The Brown Bears in the area will average 9.5' squared and Moose will average 65". However, 10' or better Bears and Moose with 70" heads are not uncommon. You will access the area by aircraft to traditional Alaskan tent camps with the most modern equipment. From there you hunt in the shadows of the volcanoes where game populations thrive.
The mountains are spectacular and the rivers and streams abound with fish, which constitute the largest wild stock Salmon spawning grounds on earth. The sheer expanse and beauty of this country will make a lifelong impression.
This is a true wilderness hunt and hunters are encouraged to be in tip top shape and prepared for all of the elements.
Accommodations: Tent camp accommodations for the duration of your hunt.
Transportation/Getting there: Hunters fly to their pickup location of King Salmon, Alaska from flights serviced out of Anchorage. Due to the remoteness of the Alaskan Peninsula it will normally take one full day (from the time you arrive in King Salmon to the time you arrive at base camp or spike camp), to obtain license and tags, change into field clothes, repack your gear, complete contracts, and flights to your hunting location.
You will usually fly to your camp from King Salmon in the afternoon or the evening. This day is a necessary part of your hunt and is required by Alaska State law which prohibits hunting the same day you are flown out. This will also give you the opportunity to obtain any last minute items you might need.
Airline flights from Anchorage to King Salmon should be scheduled at least three hours after you arrive in Anchorage from the lower 48. It is recommended that you allow time for an overnight in Anchorage and flying to King Salmon the following morning.
Hunters arriving before the scheduled date or who are delayed due to bad weather will be responsible for all extra costs incurred including hotel rooms, meals and any activities undertaken. Hunters departing after the scheduled date will be responsible for the same.
Contact us for suggested hotels and restaurants in Anchorage.
Trophy Expediting: Your Antlers, Cape, Hide and Skull will be flown from main camp to King Salmon. ALL ANTLERS & CAPES WILL BE EXPEDITED. They will be sent freight collect to the expediting service in Anchorage where they will be prepared for shipment out of state or overseas with all appropriate sealing certificates completed. Next, they will be shipped to the taxidermist of your choice or to you on a ‘freight pre-paid’ basis. This process takes time (UP TO THREE MONTHS) and it involves a tremendous amount of work on our part to make sure trophies are properly labeled and prepared for shipping. Costs will vary according to shipping destination.
You can request a cost estimate from Russell Knight at Knight's Taxidermy. They are located at 7329 Arctic Blvd, Anchorage, Alaska 99518. The phone number is (907) 344-5501. Their fax number is (907) 868-3653. You may e-mail them at email@example.com or visit the Website at www.knightstaxidermy.com
Game Meat Policy: All edible meat is removed from the field as required by State law. Most of the meat is given to locally domiciled residents of the Alaska Peninsula. Depending on circumstances and logistical considerations common to wilderness hunting, a hunter may be able to take home a small cooler or up to one 20# box of meat. We do not expedite meat or fish.
