ALASKA MOOSE HUNTING
"EXPECT TO FEEL LIKE A KID AGAIN"
Moose Hunting Season
For moose hunts that are based out of Kotzebue, Alaska. You’ll take a flight from your location to Anchorage and than an Alaska Airlines flight from Anchorage to Kotzebue. There are usually two flights per day. Our staff will meet you at the airport and help get your gear to the hotel or to our base tent on the airport tarmac.
Note: We are also running moose hunts out of Bear Lake Lodge (see our Partners Page, under About Us) and those are at the southern end of the Alaskan Peninsula. The nearest airport is Port Moler. Please call Julie Owen to discuss your interest in moose hunting and the differences between the destination locations.
The weather around the Kotzebue Sound and into the Brooks Range can vary greatly. We do not fly if there is any chance we may be putting anyone at risk. Make sure you are prepared with information on accommodations in Kotzebue regardless of the weather forecast for your arrival.
Guided Moose Hunts Include
We take care of all the equipment you and your guide will need. You’ll have excellent tents, cooking gear, food and access to the finest moose hunting in the world. Your professional guide will ensure your enjoyment of the topography and help you find and stalk the trophy moose you’ve been dreaming of. The guide will help with cooking, meat care and cape/antler care.
Guided Moose Hunts Do Not Include
Guided hunts do not include your Alaska hunting license or moose hunting tags. Your guide will quarter your meat according to Alaska Department of Fish & Game requirements (meat must be left on the bone) and handle your cape until we pick you up. Your guide will be able to help quite a bit and ensure you follow ADF&G requirements. Once you return to Kotzebue, we can suggest a location where you can further process and package your own meat and ship it to your home. We can also suggest taxidermists or guide you on proper shipment of your cape and antlers back home. Northern Air Trophy is not responsible for your moose meat or your moose cape and antlers. We can only offer verbal assistance so that you can understand the options available and make choices based on your budget. Make sure to allow extra time when you return to Kotzebue so that you can properly handle your moose meat and trophy prior to making your way for home.
The attached document contains all you will need to know to effectively plan your hunt with information about Kotzebue, airline tickets, packing checklists, etc. After reviewing this document, you will want to make a call to Julie Owen to ensure availability and to begin processing our agreement and your hunting deposit.
