Alaska Moose Hunting Guide Service

Are you ready for one of the best alaska moose hunting experiences of your life?

Known as moose across North America, but called elk in Europe, Alces alces is the largest member of the deer family. The Alaska-Yukon race (Alces alces gigas) is the largest of all of these creatures. Adult moose can range in size from 800 pounds (small adult female) to 1,600 pounds (large adult male), and they can be up to almost 6 feet tall. Moose can range in color from golden brown to almost black, depending on the season and the age of the animal. Newborn calves have a red-brown coat that fades to a light rust color within a few weeks. By late summer, the calves have shed this coat and grown one that is similar in texture and color to that of adults.

Moose are often easily recognized by their antlers, carried only by the males. These bony protrusions form within the first year, and are produced every summer after that. Trophy class bulls are found throughout Alaska, but the largest come from the western portion of the state. The largest sized antlers are usually produced when bulls are 10 – 12 years old, but bulls can reach trophy size as young as 6 years of age. In the wild, moose rarely live more than 16 years.

Our Alaskan Moose have a median height of around 61 inches. They have great mass and heavy wide paddles. The pre-rut is a period in which the moose are responding to calls very well, and this is the time that we schedule our hunts. We don’t hunt in the typical swampy low land that most people think of when they think of moose hunting. We are hunting the beautiful rolling hills and large meadows. Only 6 moose hunters per year  are scheduled with us, and because of that exclusivity and attention to detail, we have maintained a very high success rate over the years.

Arctic North Guides hunts moose out of our western Alaska camp that is located in GMU 19. Hunters who venture out with our Alaska Moose Hunting Guides will be flown out to camps located with our 1500 square mile hunting area to spike camps, these camps are located on ridge tops and close to prime moose country. The Alaskan Yukon moose is the largest of the moose sub-species, and our hunting are has produced many trophy moose over the years.

Alaska Moose Hunting Season

We hunt in two different game management areas, as our camp is located right on the border. Moose season in both areas opens on September 5 th and closes in one area on the 15 th and the 20 th in the northern area.

Alaska Moose Hunting Guides

Our professional Alaska moose hunting guides are well trained at moose hunting in our area. Your guide will have a camp prepared for you when you arrive, and he will spend most days glassing and calling for moose. Your guide will be able to judge the moose, so that you are sure to go home with a trophy bull.

We also employ 1 packer for each moose hunter we book so you and your guide will be able to go further to get your bull and not have to worry about the meat spoiling. This also comes in handy if you are on a combo hunt as you will be able to spend more time hunting bears after you get your moose.
