Techniques to Hunt Your Favorited Trophy in Alaska

Every hunter has a dream of perfect hunting and a good challenge. From strong moose to wild heavy brown bear to various waterfowl, it is not easy to hunt. While hunting in Alaska, a hunter has to face many challenges and threats to carry out his prey.

Experienced outfitters and guides can help make your next Alaska-guided moose hunting trip a successful adventure. They can guide you through preparation, hunting, field dressing, and more.

Hunting wild animals in Alaska is not only an adventure for many but also a life achievement. These giant beasts inspire incredible passion in residents and non-residents alike. The moose is a creature of both astonishing size and fine-grained instincts. For years, many hunters have wondered how animals weighing more than 1,000 pounds and antlers eight feet high at the shoulder could disappear from the wild for days on end. Moose have spent ages surviving from wolves, bears, high snow, and predators. They are perfectly adapted to the Alaskan Mountain Range and can run on snow that stuns every other animal in the forest.

Brown bears and moose are both giant in size and are exceptionally good for eating. There are very few people who would turn down a Moose Roast or some Bear Burger. The meat of these animals is so good. There are many different ways to hunt in Alaska, and they are all challenging. Here are some of the more popular ways to follow those hunting techniques.

Calling and Hunting

Moose breeding season, known as a rut, usually occurs in early October, so you can plan your 11-day Alaska guided moose hunting trip in between the first and second week of September. Cow call is one of the most effective ways to summon a Bull Moose in the proper position. A cow call is a long, pleasing sound produced with your hands or through a conical-shaped instrument. The main thing is to move the call forward so that a bull can hear it and move towards you.

There is no more thrilling experience in hunting than hearing the bull moose coming in your direction, grunting and cutting trees. Moose has a fantastic ability to reach the call source place, so you need the shooter ahead of the caller’s position. Beating small trees or bushes with a canoe paddle also copies the sound of a bull tearing foliage. This sound can play alongside calling or can be produced alone.

Water Hunt

Perhaps the most convenient way of hunting brown bears is along the coastal zone. Whether it is a lake, sea, or a river, if there are bears in the area, they will come to the seashore or riverbank to eat the king salmon. By taking advantage of this feeding habit of the brown bear, you can carry out your Alaskan brown bear hunts by boat. Boats are a good source of access to that hunting area along the river. It’s amazing how close you can get to bears with a boat. When the bear comes near your territory, you need to be alert and be ready to hit the target without any errors. Of course, if brown bears get wind of you while chasing or attacking a bear, they will withdraw from the hunting area and disappear.

Hunters can also track the footsteps of brown bears when they are reaching the river bank for feeding purposes. Waiting for a bear takes much patience, but the wait-and-watch strategy can be very effective if bears feed in a shallow bay early in the morning and evening.

Forest Cut Overs

The areas of wild forest that have been logged are the place where most moose hunters spend their time and energy. This is because the removal of old overgrown forest, which creates a disturbance, makes space for growing leafy deciduous plants that moose loves to eat. After finding these areas by moose, they make these areas their home base until the food runs out or until hunter traffic drives them away.

Most of the time, the fine places to hunt in logged areas are small pockets or isolated zones off the usual path. Moses is a calm nature animal and will use a fairly small space if they feel safe. Build an ambush and glassing for the moose to achieve a successful hunt. Be careful as moose have an unbelievable ability to see motion from a far distance, so take your time.
