Default Planning an Alaskan Float Trip Hunt!

Anyone know of a good bush pilot for moose and caribou?

Alaska is a big state. Do you have an idea where you want to hunt?

Probably best to focus on one or the other. There are some places where you can find both, but usually not in great numbers. More often than not good moose habitat isn't good caribou habitat and vice versa.

Your best bet is to use a good hunt planner. There's a lot of shady pilots out there that'll take your money and dump you in no man's land.

Geronimo, are you planning on a DIY float or are you going to have someone outfit you? I've been looking into a hunt up there myself for 2011. There's allot to consider...

Pristene ventures makes a great move for people that are interested in float hunting alaska, i would recomend highly that you watch it before you do mush planning. It gives a amazing amount of info on river selection how to tell that there is going to be water in it and so on. Also check out 700 miles alone. he does a float and has a chance at bear, sheep, caribou, and moose. all depends on how much time you can put into it. If you do decide to do the float hunt, i would recomand letting pristene ventures set you up. i have never personally worked with them but many people i know have and have nothing but great things to say. if you have any more questions shoot me a email.
