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.

When to hunt Alaska Yukon Moose?
Trophy moose hunts usually take place in the rut, which happens in September-October in most parts of moose range. 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.

Most trophy hunts take place during the rut. Moose bulls challenge each other for dominance and territorial control. By imitating a rival bull hunters can get the moose in range but beware: during the rut bull moose are very aggressive, and many believe them to be more dangerous than even bears.

Alaska Moose Hunt 2021 United States
Hunting is spot and stalk, with an emphasis on calling. A great deal of time is spent calling. Done properly and with the right conditions, myself or one of my guides can effectively “blind call” moose from 2 miles or more, often times bringing him all the way to the glassing hill. Like all hunting, finding a large bull requires patience. Nothing can compare to watching a large old bull come in to a call! The trip starts with you flying into King Salmon, where I will meet you on arrival, and pick up your registration permit, license and tags if you have not already done so online. From there we will fly into my hunt area via float plane, landing at one of the many lakes. We will set up a small yet comfortable spike camp, consisting of a 4 person Bomb Shelter tent for the client, complete with cots and lantern, and a small 3 man VE-25 tent for myself and my Assistant Guide, along with an extra tent for meal preparation. From this location we will start our hunt, climbing to a high point each morning and glassing for moose. We utilize a small Zodiak style raft to travel the lakes and creeks, and then hike to an observation point. This gives us great mobility, allowing us to easily move several miles in a day with little effort. More importantly, it allows us to go after moose that would otherwise impossible to reach, much less pack back to camp. When we harvest the moose we skin it, pack the meat bone in back to camp, followed by hide and antlers, then prepare for the plane to come and get us. This marks the end of your hunt.
