Hello! I am new to this forum with the purpose of learning more about hunting in the great state of Alaska. I have never hunted in Alaska. I have hunted for mule deer and elk in Utah (Southwestern UT - Deer), Arizona (Kaibab National Forest - Deer & Show Low/Payson Areas - Elk), and New Mexico (Gila National Forest - Deer & Elk) since I was 16 years old. I have always wanted to hunt the Yukon Bull Moose in Alaska and this year I applied for a draw tag in GMU 13B, 13E, and 13A without a good understanding of the territory or effective ways to hunt moose. My primary objective is to enjoy my experience in Alaska's wilderness with my Dad.
I recently bought and read Hunting in Alaska by Chris Batin and also purchased the Delorme Alaska Atlas & Gazetteer from this website to start the research and education process. I appreciate all of the good information members of this forum have shared which has been a great resource for my research.
I like to think of myself as an avid outdoorsman and adventurer who does not want to go on a fully guided hunt. I am interested in a fly-in, drop off, and do it yourself hunt with my Dad if I draw a tag. What is the name and contact info of recommended Fly-in Charters that service GMU 13 and what city does the services depart from? I would like to start the dialogue process with recommended charters now, instead of waiting until March when the draw results come out. Is there a better style of hunt that is recommended for someone like me? Thank you in advance for your help.
