4 Hunts - 4 Trophies!

I hunted 4 times with Chet in 4 years. Every year was successful and I have 4 memories of a lifetime. 2 made Top 10 SCI and one of them All-time Boone and Crockett. The hunts are hard but he game is there. If you put in the work, effort, and preparation you can be assured a great experience and successful hunt. You feel important to the outfitter and won't be let down. I never went hungry and the outfitter was constantly in touch with the hunters and guides out in the field. He worked hard toward safety and success on every hunt. When necessary they brought in the plane to make a change in location when weather or hunting dictated a change.

Costs in Alaska are very expensive, so it is with hunting and the necessity of airplanes for travel This makes it very pricey for the average hunter like myself. Weather during hunting season can be brutal. Both are out of control of the outfitters/guides. I was advised of proper gear ahead of time. Not the outfitters fault of course but makes it hard to feel like a good value for your dollars.

Chet Benson and his guides put out extreme effort toward your successful hunt.

The area they hunt appears to be well managed and holds good numbers of quality trophies. These folks are more than happy to hunt as hard as you are capable. If you are wanting to hunt sheep, be sure you are physically and mentally capable of this type of hunt. They do a good job of finding your best abilities.

The odor of my clothes when i returned.... I cant think of any one thing i did not like on my extreme sheep hunt. I expected to live on dried food and be wet most of the time from either precipitation or perspiration. My advice for a prospective hunter is know what to expect for the species you wish to hunt.

Great hunting experience for Kodiak Bears

Once you take the the float plane out of Kodiak you are in the wilderness and the scenery is amazing. We saw bears every day but getting close to a mature bear is challenging. However on the seventh day we are able to take a great bear. If you really want a big bear you need to plan to stay all ten days.

The only thing not to like is the rain. We only saw the sun two of the nine days I was on Kodiak.

I have hunted with them about 8 times. I have never had a hunt that i did not have an opportunity. sometimes the sheep and goat hunting can be tough, but they will put you on animals if you do your part.

the callenge and the capable people they put with you.

when the hunts are over.

Hunting in Alaska is a challenge and physically demanding. You have to expect the unexpected. They do an excellent job trying to anticipate the unexpected and ensure you have an opportunity to get your animals.

The guides are well verse in the animals of Alaska and are residents. Not someone from the 'lower 48' looking for work.

Having better sleeping quarters would be nice but not real practical if you are headed to the back country. A larger group tent for eating and drying out would be nice along with a chair or two.

John United States 8.3 of 10

The landscape was absolutely beautiful , the expirience was thrilling and the outfitter extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

The entire expirience from start to finish was memorable and exiting .

Very spartan conditions for the money.
