ALASKAN MOOSE HUNTING SUCCESS TIPS

Many people believe that Moose are dumb animals and are easy to harvest. While sometimes they appear that way, they are really fairly elusive except during the Rut. Most Game Management Units in Alaska close Moose season down shortly after the Rut gets started. Even when they are in the Rut, finding a big mature Bull Moose is often a challenge. Much of the State has a  predator to a ungulate population imbalance that  created […]

TESTIMONIAL ON AN ALASKA BUSH ADVENTURES HUNT

“I’ve always been an avid hunter and have enjoyed many hunts here in Arizona however I always dreamed of hunting big game in a remote area of Alaska. When I met Ryan Krank several years back and heard all his stories about his company, Alaska Busch Adventures, I knew I needed to start saving my money to make my dream a reality. My dream in fact became a reality when I flew to Alaska as […]

ANOTHER HAPPY CLIENT…

“After much research and information gathering I choose Alaska Bush Adventures for my bear hunt. After meeting with Les and Ryan Krank, I was sure I had made a good choice. Upon arriving in base camp, I went over the final plan for the hunt with guide Ryan. Ryan was as knowledgeable as anyone I have ever hunted with and seemed truly exited about our hunt. The next day we flew on a cub plane […]

My Experience on an Alaska Bush Adventures FLOAT HUNT!

My friend and I did a unguided fully outfitted moose float trip the 2014 season through Alaska Bush Adventures. This was our first time hunting moose or visiting Alaska for that matter. We did our research and asked Hugh and Ryan many questions in the months leading up to the trip. They were both very willing, able, and helpful in answering our many questions about gear, weather, hunting, etc. We got maps of the area […]

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

  I want to start by thanking Alaska Bush Adventures for a GREAT Alaskan adventure. I selected Alaska Bush Adventures after exploring other options and talking with Les on the phone several times. It was obvious that Les was excited to talk about hunting Moose. My decision was also base on the fact that Les mentioned a couple of times in our conversations that the area we would be hunting was off the beaten path […]

ALASKA FRESH WATER FISHING

Southwestern Alaska is full of winding and converging rivers that are plentiful with fish and surrounding wildlife but few are not overrun with other fisherman. The beautiful Holitna/Hoholitna and their numerous tributaries are easy flowing mostly flat-water rivers and streams offers you the opportunity for the best secluded fresh water fishing trip in the region. You will pass through forests of black and white spruce, poplars, birch, and cottonwood trees. The river begins in the Alpine […]

MOOSE HABITS AND HUNTING TECHNIQUES

In the Spring and Summer, the bulls are mostly loners that spend most of their days feeding on willows, birch and aspen twigs in the higher mountain valleys. The lush forage, which is abundant during the summer months, gives the necessary nourishment to aid in the trophy size growth of their antlers, which are covered with soft velvet. Their antlers begin to harden in late August. With the shorter days and colder frosty nights the […]

ALASKAS PREDATOR CONTROL PROGRAM

Over a 12 year time frame, from 1990 to 2004 Alaska’s Predator Program was put on hold statewide. This resulted in a proliferation of Wolves by some calculations, of up to 4 times the average number which provides a healthy and stable eco system for wildlife. During this time the prey quarry of Wolves, such as the Moose, Caribou, Beavers, River Otters, Squirrels, Ptarmigan, Grouse and many more species took a huge hit and over […]

FLOAT HUNTING TIPS

There is a big misconception that float hunting is done primarily by floating the river looking and waiting to harvest Moose as they are spotted along the way.  Whereas this is a possibility one should not rely on it happening that way and it is not the best use of your hunting time.  It’s important to take your time, making and breaking your camp only a few times along the way.  Hunting the area around […]
