Where to hunt Alaska Yukon Moose
Moose live in boreal forest regions across the Northern Hemisphere, from Scandinavia to the Rocky Mountains. They are one of the biggest ungulates of the North, rivaled only by the Bison. And if you’re after the biggest moose, you’re bound to go to Alaska and the Yukon into the Mackenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories. There you will find the Alaska-Yukon moose.
The incredible Alaska-Yukon monster moose are the most expensive moose to hunt. Prices start at about $18,000. A large part of the price covers the travel to remote areas where the moose dwell. Consequently, a combination hunt with a mountain goat, grizzly, sheep or caribou, while more expensive in absolute figures, will be a better value overall.

Meat hunts commonly take place later, in November-December, when the bull meat is less affected by hormonal surge of the mating period, and snow makes it easier to spot and track animals. Post-rut hunts tend to be cheaper, but beware that moose shed their antlers at about the time of snowfall.
