Hello all. I am looking to plan a bowhunt in Ak for next fall. I am 39, and have been bowhunting since age 11. I have been to Ak before. And took a nice Grizzly a few years back with my bow, and cant wait any longer to get back to Ak. Am open to most anything. But was really wanting to go after sitka blacktails. I already have taken Grizzly, moose, and caribou. But would love to take another moose, and am REALLY wanting to take a Brown. I live in some of the best whitetail hunting you can find in the midwest. And would be willing to trade a trophy whitetail hunt. I have private land in both ILL. and IND. as I live on the state line. I hang in excess of 50 tree stands every year, in 8 different hunting areas. All within 30 minutes of my home. And that is just for me, as I am not an outfitter. I am only a trophy bowhunter and take 150"+ animals almost every year. I have pics to prove the quality of the animals I have taken in the area. This year was a 174"+ in ILL. and a 148"+ in IND.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. And I am a grateful person to those who would assist me. I am an accomplished and experienced bowhunter. Having taken 10 of the big game species, with over 20 P&Y animals. I am very willing and able to do any of the hunts myself. Of course I know I am not legally able to do the Brown hunt without an outfitter. Would love to hear any suggestions on areas and times for any of the great Ak. animals. And would welcome suggestions on REASONABLE honest outfitters as well. Thank you for your time. Darrell Bozarth
