About this hunt

THIS IS A DRAWING HUNT ( HUNT # DI454). APPLICATION PERIOD IS FROM NOVEMBER 1 – DECEMBER 15 FOR THE FOLLOWING YEAR. This is a once in a lifetime drawing hunt that takes place on the East side of the Copper River on private land inside the Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Preserve. Snowmobiles are used to access the area during February and March when the Bison come down from the mountains to feed along windblown bluffs near the river. This is a tough but rewarding hunt. I strongly encourage anyone interested in this hunt to begin putting in now as it usually takes several years to draw a tag. Non residents can only draw one bison tag per lifetime. Accommodations consist of a rustic bunkhouse and hearty home cooked meals.

Dall Sheep hunt.

Gorgeous country. Great 1x1 hunt. Tim is serious about being a top guide. Works hard. Takes good care of all. Experienced.

Others in camp saw limited game. Legal rams were a challenge as was the wet foggy weather.

Verified review This review comes from a verified BookYourHunt purchase

It was the best guided hunt I have ever been on, so lucky I booked with him.

Tim is very knowledgable in the animals we were hunting, the area, has a great facility, geat meals and good company in the stand. I really enjoyed the hunt. Has the baiting scheme figured out and does a great job. Got a real nice black bear, passed on another that on any other hunt I would have taken in a heart beat, and a great brown bear in 4 days of hunting, what more can you say, even the taxidermy shop I dropped the hides off to was impressed with the care the hides had had, in perfect condition, you can't ask for more from a guide. He may see me again soon.

Not a darn thing.

Outstanding

the sceneries of the brooks range are outstanding. the guides were some of the best I have ever used and I have hunted all over the world. Tim is outstanding , not to mention a pack horse when it came time to bring the trophy out. I will hunt with Tim again.

the fact I had to go home.

This is the outfitter you want to hunt Alaska

Tim Nelson understands stand location and preparation for his bear sites. He is a talented outdoorsman and skilled in all areas of hunting. His trophy care after you take an animal is first rate.
