Alaska’s weather can be unforgiving and often causes flight delays, scheduling chaos that cuts into your hunting time; travel plans and can cause meat to spoil. With AK Expeditions we are able to set sail in weather that would otherwise ground bush aircraft getting you into and out of the field nearly unencumbered by inclement weather.
We transport in Game Management Unit 21 focusing on Sub-units D, E & A. We hold State of Alaska Commercial Land Use & Commercial Day use permits as well as a Special Use Permit from US Fish and Wildlife for the Innoko National Wildlife Refuge. We can also permitted to access BLM Lands throughout this region.
A nonresident hunter must have viewed the hunter orientation materials: “Is This Moose Legal” video and the “Field Care of Big Game” video and completed the quiz prior to hunting. It is advisable for all hunters doing a DIY Moose Hunt review these videos and take the quiz. You don't want to come all this way only to kill a sub-legal bull and have to forfeit the moose meat and rack to the Alaska State Troopers who will also be issuing you a citation.
After successfully passing the quiz you may print the certification card online . You will also receive a copy via email you can print out and keep with your hunting license, permits and locking tags.
It is customary to tip your transport captain (usually 15-20%) of the transport price. He in turn shares tips with the crew who strive to make your trip on the Yukon River safe and memorable. We spend weeks preparing your camp, the boat, rental gear, prepping food and camp totes, loading boats, assist in shuttling clients and hustle on deck to assist you with your personal gear to ensure your hunt is safe and memorable. Cash is preferred but tips can be charged to a card.
This is the most logistically difficult task for the DIY Hunter to coordinate. Moose can weigh 600-700 lbs dressed out. The rack can weight another 50-75 lbs. Meat and racks fly "space available" on the passenger and cargo flights out of the village. This means meat could sit at the airstrip increasing the potential for spoilage. Be prepared to share the cost to charter a plane to haul your meat, rack and gear back to Anchorage. Meat can easily be donated in Anchorage, but you have to get it there.
Wanton waste of big game meat is an extremely serious offense punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 and 1 year in jail.
You must salvage ALL EDIBLE meat unless it has been stolen, taken, or destroyed by a wild animal, lost to unanticipated weather conditions or other acts of God, or transferred to someone who accepts responsibility for salvaging and removing the meat from the field.
You are not required to salvage the meat of the head, guts, bones, sinew, and meat left on the bones after close trimming, or meat that has been damaged and made inedible by the bullet or arrow.
