Fair Chase

The Tradition Continues

Kodiak Brown Bear Hunting - About the guides who were the previous holders of my world famous areas Karluk Lake and  Red Lake on Kodiak Island; I had the honor of working for Bill Pinnell and Morris Talifson ("Last of the Great Brown Bear Men") for 14 years.

I got my start hunting Kodiak bears and deer with Pinnell and Talifson in 1977, and have always been thankful that I had the opportunity to learn from the best in the business. They taught me a lot about what true Fair Chase Hunting really is. Their tradition of hunting will continue through me.

Locations

Kodiak Island Hunts - My guide areas on Kodiak Island are located approximately 90 air miles southwest of Kodiak, in the Red Lake Area and the Karluk Lake area. These are hands down two of the top areas on Kodiak Island. There are no roads or airstrips in my guide area. The only way to reach my hunting camps is by float plane via the city of Kodiak. This is the home to the great Alaskan Kodiak Brown Bear, Mt. Goat, and Sitka Black Tail Deer.


Alaska Range Hunts- My camps are located on the north slope of the Alaska Range, in the Kuskokwim River Drainage, approximately 160 air miles north of Anchorage. We are in the Heart of the Alaskan Range. Here we can hunt Moose, Caribou, Grizzly Bear, Dall Sheep, and Black Bear

Chugach Range Hunts - Here in the Chugach Range we hunt for Mt.Goat, and Dall Sheep.These are draw hunts only. Mountain Goat are also hunted on Kodiak Island.

Camps

The semi-permanent camps will be warm, spacious wall tents, eight man Cabela's tents, and Arctic Oven tents, or log cabins where available. Mountain tents will be used for spiking out in remote areas, only if the size animal you desire can't be found within easy walking distance of the main camps.

 

Transportation

Kodiak Island - Transportation to my guide area is via DeHaviland Beaver, Cessna 206, or Gruman Wiedgon all float planes from the city of Kodiak. I will make all arrangements for this flight. The hunter will be responsible for paying for his own transportation round trip from Kodiak to camp.

Alaska Range - Transportation to my camps is via Cessna 206 Wheel Plane from Anchorage. I will make all arrangements for this flight. The hunter will be responsible for paying for his own transportation round trip from Anchorage to camp.

Chugach Range - Transportation to my camps is via Super Cub on wheels from Palmer, Alaska .I will make all arrangements for this flight. The hunter will be responsible for paying for his own transportation round trip from Palmer to camp.

Guides

Each hunter will have a guide, which will be assigned to him for the duration of the hunt. Generally I will be your guide or one of my guides who are also trained woodsmen and professional hunters, and are well qualified in all phases of trophy hunting, including judging and the care of skins and meat.

 

Trophy Handling

Your trophies will receive expert preparation and care in camp, and will be shipped to you or your specified agent, freight collect.

I will provide you with true fair chase guides to hunt Brown Bear and Sitka Black tail Deer (Kodiak Island) or Moose, Grizzly Bear, Wolf, Dall Sheep, Caribou  (Alaska Range), or Mountain Goat on the dates provided. If they do not meet your schedule, we can arrange a hunt to fit your time and needs. My pleasure will be in guiding you on the most satisfying hunt of your life.

A deposit of 50% is due at the time of booking your hunt. The remaining balance is due at least 90 days before the hunt starts. The deposit is non-refundable, unless a replacement can be found to take your place. For pricing, please review the hunting cost schedule.
