Alaska Peninsula

Alaska Peninsula Moose Hunts


Moose hunting on the Alaska Peninsula is much like hunting anywhere in Alaska, except for the competition. Due to the remoteness of our location, very few residents hunt there, making the selection of good trophies more opportune. This area has been classified as a Trophy Moose Area by the State of Alaska, so moose under 50" cannot be taken. The average moose is around 59", but they may be taken anywhere from 50" to75" in this area, with our average at about 65". All hunting is done by fair chase, with boats and aircraft to transport meat and trophy back to the main camp. Spike camps are used to get clients closer to known game areas and are constructed with the local weather and your comfort in mind. September temperatures vary from 35 to 55°F.

Ugashik Moose 1 client : 1 guide 10 hunting days Season: 09-10 through 09-25

Martin Hohmann of Heidelberg Germany travelled a long way to take a moose at our Alaska Peninsula Camp this fall season. Martin hunted our Kodiak Camp and took a very good brown bear in 2010. Assisted by guide Bret Bohn and Gus Lamoureux, Martin took this 69 1/2 inch moose on day one after stocking it twice, (the hand signals weren't hashed out well enough in advance). Packer, Steve Strickland aided in packing and caping. If you wish to ask Martin about his hunts he can be contacted at dr.martin.hohmann@t-online.de If you get to Germany and need your back looked at I am positive he knows his business well!
Marsha Cooper of Flower Mound, Texas made a dynamite shot on this bull moose taken across the lake from our main base camp. She is sure proud of it. Her husband, Rusty, accompanied her along with her guides, Glenn Bohn and Gus Lamoureux. Rusty turned out to be quite the packer! The meat was all donated to the folks in Ugashik Village.
Barbara Baldauf, along with the rest of her family, from Saginaw, Michigan has taken the time away from their family business of Saginaw Control and Engineering to hunt with us many times over the years taking bear, moose, and goat. Barb is pictured here with her moose of 68-inches. Her husband, Dave, Gus and Koreen Lamoureux, assisted Barb in getting her moose. To hear some of their hunting stories or ask any questions about our camps and our hunts you can email them.
Tom Wyles of Tomahawk Log and Country Home in Tomahawk, Wisconsin has been hunting with us many times on Kodiak Island. Tom decided he wanted to hunt moose with us and that meant he was finally coming to the Alaska Peninsula. Tom was guided by Gus Lamoureux, with Roger McCarty acting as packer. They took this beautiful 66-inch moose on the 4th day of the hunt. Tom can be reached for questions regarding both of our camps at cwyles@tomahawklog.com.

Rick Voth of Walla Walla, Washington came on his moose hunt and brought his son along as companion and packer. Rick was guided by Glenn Bohn and took home this very nice moose.
Bob Cowell met us at the Dallas Safari Club and said that he wanted to come on a moose and a brown bear hunt on the Alaska Peninsula. Well he did both. Bob was guided on his moose hunt by Gus Lamoureux and got this beautiful 68-inch moose.
Mike Weber was referred to us by Mike Ritter, Sr., another client, and they came together on a moose hunt. Mike was guided by Glenn Bohn and got to take home this very nice moose.
Mike Ritter, Jr is generally an archery hunter, but decided to take this monster moose with his rifle. Mike came to us from Indiana where he and his father run Great Lakes Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical Inc. Mike also got a huge wolf while hunting his moose.
Nolan Crowther was on a Kodiak Island Brown Bear hunt with us when he decided he wanted to come to the Alaska Peninsula for a moose hunt. Gary Keen guided Nolan to this nice moose.
Tim Cummings is usually very busy with his full service electrical business, Cummings Electrical, Inc., but while at the Dallas Safari Club Convention he decided to come on a moose hunt with us. He got this very nice bull on the third day of his hunt. Tim was guided by Gus Lamoureux and assisted by Chris Osbekoff. The moose had the last laugh. What they couldn’t see when stalking and shooting him was that he was standing in six inches of water. The fun was definitely over and then the work began.

We do not conduct Wolf specific hunts, but if you are in possession of a wolf tag, while hunting another species, and the opportunity presents, you may take a wolf at no extra charge.
Patrick Sikorskii, while on his Alaska Peninsula Brown Bear hunt, got this beautiful wolf; actually, Patrick got two wolves.

Mike Ritter, Jr took this huge wolf while on his Alaska Peninsula Moose hunt.
Mike Barron didn’t get to connect with an Alaskan Brown bear when he came up on his archery hunt, but he did get this nice wolf. Just peeled off the hip boots for a few minutes.

Ugashik Lake Bear Camp


Our main or base camp consists of six buildings; one is the main cabin with the kitchen and eating area. Two other buildings are each divided into two rooms with bunks in them, one is a storage building, one is a shower and outhouse the remaining one is another outhouse. The bunkrooms are all carpeted with twin size beds and kerosene heat.

We have other accommodations that include cabins, wall tents, Bomb Shelters (tent), and small pack tents.
Wolf Lake is nestled at the base of a small hill in a mountain valley near the confluence of three streams. This location is ideal for spotting bear as they emerge from their dens in the spring and as they begin denning in the fall. You can see the cabin on the shore.

Some of our spike camps are metal frame wall tents. These give you standing room. They are provided with cots, Therm-a-Rest pads, pillows, tables, stoves and food.

All the meat was stored under the boat for the night to keep the bears away. Antlers and the gear will go back in the boat in the morning.
