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.
