How to Prepare for an Alaska Moose Hunting Trip

by Arctic North Guides LLC ***

If hunting moose is a dream of yours, you do not want to mess up your trip by being ill prepared. An easy way to ensure you have a great experience is to join one of the guided Alaska moose hunting trips. Once you book a hunt, your tour company will provide you with the specifics of the tour so that you can prepare. However, there are a few general actions to take to get ready.

Licenses and Permits

You do not want to head to Alaska only to find out that you do not have the right licenses to hunt moose. Do not rely on the ability to buy them once you arrive. Alaska moose hunting trips are popular, so they might be sold out during the peak season. Check with your hunting trip guides when you book to see if they obtain the hunting license for you as part of the services. If not, you will need to do so on your own through the Alaska Department of Fish and Game website.

Undergo Orientation

There is a Hunter Orientation program in place through the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to help moose hunters ensure their hunt remains legal and safe. Through taking the time before you head to Alaska for your hunt to understand the regulations, as well as how to keep yourself safe, you will be able to have a much more enjoyable -- and stress free -- experience.

Gear and Equipment

To ensure an enjoyable experience on one of the Alaska moose hunting trips, you need to have the right equipment. Your tour company provides a checklist of recommended items, including clothing, guns and other gear. You will want to make sure you have the right clothing to keep yourself warm and dry while you are out on the hunt. Additionally, you will need to have some items to help you stay comfortable, such as blister protection, sunscreen, sunglasses and insect repellant. Your tour company might have restrictions on how much gear you can take as you head out on the hunt, so make sure that you are in compliance so that you do not have to leave anything behind.

There are many other actions to take to prepare yourself to head out on your hunting trip, such as choosing when to go, booking your plane tickets and practicing your shooting skills. When you book one of the Alaska moose hunting trips, you will typically have several months in which to prepare yourself to ensure your trip will be so enjoyable, you will be ready to head out with Alaska brown bear hunting guides the next time.
