All our moose hunts start with a flight into one of our fly-in only lakes or bush strips, with three travel options from there: horseback, boat or ATV. Add-on animals are available on all three types of hunt. We don’t like to put numbers on animals, and width is just one measurement. That being said, moose in our area average in the 55–60” range with a legitimate tape measure that starts at 0.
HORSEBACK – THE TRADITIONAL WAY TO EXPERIENCE THE YUKON
After flying in you may hunt right from the cabins, ride out to an outpost cabin, or pack up tents and spike out. This will depend on which camp you are at and what the game is doing. The horses allow you to access some incredible country. You may get up high and glass or stay low and call, or a combination of the two. This hunt is the most physically demanding as you will be required to walk your horses downhill, and the final stalk is usually done on foot. These hunts are 12 days in camp including travel days starting August 31st.
BOAT – THE MOST COMMON METHOD OF MOOSE HUNTING
Once you land, you will stay in a cabin or established wall tent with a wood stove. You may end up calling right from the boat or walking to vantage points on shore and hunting there. While these can be the least physically demanding hunts, the farther you are willing to go ashore, the more country you open up. We start these 12-day hunts a little later than our horse hunts on September 5th.
ATV – THE CONVENIENT WAY OF MOOSE HUNTING
After landing at the strip you will have a short ride to the cabins. From there you will hunt the many miles of abandoned cat roads from past mining efforts. There are two major rivers separating this trail network from civilization so, with the exception of a few fly-in gold miners, there are no other people or vehicles around. While the majority of the travel is done on the Side-by-Sides, hunters should still expect some walking to get to vantage points and on final stalks.
