Moose Hunting Alaska is an amazing trophy hunting experience. The Alaska/Yukon Moose is truly the largest of the Moose subspecies. The areas we are now hunting moose has the genetics for world class trophies as well, and the opportunities are high to harvest an animal in the 60 inches and higher. Some are non-typical and so unique. Back in the 1950’s the Alaskan fish and game department had transported moose down into unit 6 from the Kenia Peninsula and have done incredibly well even with all the brown bears and wolfs! If you look at the record books you will notice that peninsula moose are the highest percentage of all the moose records recorded.
Recommended Weapons When Moose Hunting in Alaska
Recommended weapons when Moose Hunting in Alaska is completely up to you whether it is a rifle or archery equipment. It is important to hunt with the right weapon for your Moose Hunting Trip. I recommend at a minimum a .300, .338, .375, or a .416 caliber weapon. The most important thing is that you have chosen a weapon that you are MOST COMFORTABLE and PROFICIENT WITH. Shot placement is particularly important on a Moose Hunt. Ideally, we try to get within 100 to 200 yards of our target and no further. You need a good quality, low power scope, because in some situations we are relatively close to the Moose. If you are a bow hunter, then I suggest a draw weight no less than 65 pounds. If we are also hunting dangerous game, then we want you to have the heaviest arrow possible for your bow so you get the highest kinetic energy and still shoot proficiently. Your shots will be from ten to twenty-five yards while archery hunting as your Moose Hunting Guide will also be a season archery hunter.
