    What are the areas these hunts are in?

    Koyokuk moose and Kodiak Brown bear.

    My experience on Kodiak points me to Andrews Air or Seahawk Air. My buddies who guide on Kodiak use Andrews, I used Seahawk with great success. Either operation should be able to answer who the registered guide is that is working your draw area. I would try contacting him. Some don't like the competition, but I think it's courteous to let them know you are going to be in the area. Some guides are downright helpful if you approach it right.

    For the Koyokuk moose...do you have a boat? If you don't, Charlie Green seems to get the most thumbs up for boat transportation in that area.

    Either way, it's going to be an expensive year for you

    Default Congrats Waylon

    I have used Charlie Green's transportation service a few years back for Koyukuk moose hunt and I would definitely recommend him. He is based out of Galena. Also do contact Glenn Stout, the area biologist, as he is full of good information and very helpful.

    Other options I have seen people use are to drive your own boat down river from the road system or flying in to Galena w/ your own inflatable zodiac and an outboard.

    I second this. I also used Charlie’s services a couple years ago and found him to be very reliable and accommodating. He's not cheap, but nothing up there is. Koyukuk moose and Kodiak bear, man you got yourself into one heck of a predicament. I bet there are a few people out there that would love to have your problems.

    When I first saw your post, my initial thought was if I had your tags and could only afford one hunt it would be the moose hunt. After looking at the area of your bear tag though, I had second thoughts. I hunted deer in that area several years ago and there are a LOT of bears around there.

    The beauty of your two hunts is that they are at different times. I drew a eklutna sheep and a etolin elk. I really want an Elk and My brother drew a matching sheep Don't know how many more hunting seasons are left in both of us. But we have been hunting eklutna for 30+ years together kind of a tradition. The sheep is Archery just a hard decision with both hunts at the same time. Maybe I can kill a shhep quick. Don't miss the bear hunt there is nothing like a kodiak bear hunt. Moose are everywhere but kodiak browns are only on kodiak.

    ...and the upper part of 21.

    BTW..I forgot to mention this last night. You are a non-resident with that moose permit, and you have a relative that's going to guide you on the bear hunt? If so, how much do they know about the areas?

    For the moose hunt the area for DM829 is controlled access with no transportation by aircraft. That means you have to have a boat. If you don't have a boat you are going to need to rent one from Charlie Green in Galena.


    Are you ready to go to Kodiak? You've only got until May 15th on that one.
