Alaska’s Oldest Hunting Lodge Est. 1937


Owner Cell: (907) 230-6093


A good time to hunt Sheep, Brown Grizzly Bears are going back and forth between salmon and berries. It's pre-rut for Moose and they'll start off in velvet and should be shedding by the end of this hunt. Moose may be taken for a trophy fee of $7500. A second Brown/Grizzly Bear may be harvested for an addition trophy fee of $5000 and second Black Bear for $750.



Hunt fees include equipped camps, guide services, transportation in the field, meals, and field preparation of trophies. Fees do not include your license, big game tags, transportation round trip to Rainy Pass Lodge (at this time $1500 per person & subject to change), hotel accommodations, before, during, or after the hunt, or gratuities. Weather permitting you will be flown to the lodge the day before your hunt and you will leave the lodge the day after your hunt. Un-Scheduled charters may result in an additional fee. This is one of the few Hunting Lodges in Alaska where horses are used in most camps. All hunters will be assessed a $200 Hunter’s Preservation Fee. This will be paid with your initial hunt deposit.
