Trophy class bulls are found throughout Alaska, some of the largest come from the western portion of the state. Alaskan Moose occasionally produce trophy-size antlers when they are 6 or 7 years old, with the largest antlers grown at approximately 10 to 12 years of age. In the wild, Moose rarely live more than 16 years. In several areas of Alaska, Moose can produce antlers that measure over 70 inches wide. Although 70 inch Alaskan Moose are uncommon, our clients have harvested such awesome animals in the past. Mature Alaskan bull Moose with their fully developed antlers are very majestic trophies and with our experience of hunting Alaska Moose since the 1970's we can help you in harvesting one of these impressive trophies.
In the Spring and Summer, the bulls are mostly loners that spend most of their days feeding on willows, birch and aspen twigs in the higher mountain valleys. The lush forage, which is abundant during the summer months, gives the necessary nourishment to aid in the trophy size growth of their antlers, which are covered with soft velvet. Their antlers begin to harden in late August. With the shorter days and colder frosty nights the bulls will begin to rub the velvet from their antlers starting later in August. During that time they start moving down from the higher mountain valleys toward the river and streams to look for cows, which also want to meet the bulls in their traditional breeding areas. With normal weather conditions the rut will begin in late September.
What our past clients say:
I have hunted Alaska several times. O.M.G., this hunt was truly unique, remote, scenic and a thrill of a lifetime. Les Krank, his Son Ryan, his Guides and staff really do a great job and made this Moose hunt special! My Son, Regan and I had a very successful and unique Moose hunt, thanks again for a great hunt.

By using the Jon boats with outboard jet motors on them we can travel up or down rivers for miles to hunt and get into many of the smaller streams that feed the main rivers. From here we can use spike camps when hunting, or we may return to the base camp every night. This is can be very productive, as other hunters cannot fly along the river and land where we are hunting with our jet boats. This allows access to remote areas where mature animals inhabit that cannot be reached any other way. We are the only Guide/Outfitter in this region that operates on these many rivers and streams. Give us 6 inches of water and a chain saw to cut through old logjams and we can get to places never hunted before. Besides using Jet boats we may access the uplands by Piper Cub airplanes, Argos or 4x4 ATV's. This way we can glass and hunt the higher mountain valleys, alpine meadows and open country for Alaska Moose, Alaska Caribou, Alaska Brown Bear, Alaska Grizzly and Alaska Black Bears. With our Guides many years of experience in Moose calling, raking, glassing and knowledge of their habits, we can give you an edge on getting your Alaskan Moose. You can also enjoy excellent Sport Fishing during this hunt for Alaska Rainbow Trout, Alaska Arctic Grayling, Alaska (Char) Dolly Varden, Alaska Burbot, Alaska Northern Pike, Alaska Sockeye and Alaska Silver Salmon on the clear water rivers we hunt.
Beside myself as an Alaskan Master Guide/Outfitter, our guiding crew consists of my Son, Ryan Krank and Roy A. both with Registered Guide and Outfitter licenses along with well seasoned assistant guides who have been part our team since the late 80's and early 90's.
Our River Base camps offer our most comfortable accommodations and offer one a great chance for harvesting Alaska Moose, Alaska Brown Bear, Alaska Grizzly Bear, Alaska Caribou and Alaska Black Bear without having to do the more strenuous type of spike camp hunting. You still need to be in good shape to have a more successful and enjoyable trip. At these camps we have large wall tents for dinning and common use with wood stoves for heat and propane burners for cooking. There are generators for power, hot showers, outhouse toilets and sleeping quarters with cots. In these camps we have satellite phones for communications with each other and emergency use. The Guides also carry video cameras to capture your hunt and daily activities for you to have forever to remember your Alaskan hunt.
We offer many different guided fall and spring Alaska Brown Bear and Alaska Grizzly Bear hunting trips.
