Alaska’s great Arctic on the southern side of the majestic Brooks Range Mountains is home to some of the world’s largest trophy bull moose. We invite you to fly with us in a float equipped aircraft for an unforgettable, self-guided trophy Bull Moose hunt in Alaska’s southern Brooks Range Mountains during the month of September.
The cost of your hunt includes your flight, to and from the drop off hunting location and all flights necessary to transport your harvested game from the field. We do not charge anything extra if you harvest a wolf and/or bear (Alaska resident or direct next of kin, as per State of Alaska hunting regulations, for grizzly bear) while on your hunt. Furthermore, we will move you to another location if requested at no additional cost (weather and schedule dependent). There are no hidden costs.
Hunts are conducted in units 24A, 24B and 25A, were Massive Bulls in the 65” to 70” class reside and are harvested each year and trophy bulls in the mid to low 60” class are common. With limited to no hunting pressure, rich and abundant food sources in vast moose habitat, Bull Moose thrive and mature, growing to record breaking sizes. You will hunt in some of the most pristine and remote country you will ever encounter and witness a wilderness teeming with virtually every species of Alaskan wildlife, including grizzly and black bear, sheep, wolves, fox, beaver, wolverine and a large a variety of bird species. All set against the background of the towering and majestic Brooks Range Mountains dotted with lakes and fed by pristine rivers and streams filled with world class grayling, lake trout, char, sheefish aka whitefish and northern pike. This is truly a sportsman’s paradise!
Note about Moose Hunting
Our fly-out hunts are all self-guided. Moose are very large animals and hunters must be experienced and fully capable of hunting, quartering, packing and properly caring for their game (according to State of Alaska big game hunting regulations). Hunters should allow 10-14 hunting days or more for this hunt. We do not charge anything extra for longer hunts, and we recommend that you allow as much time as you can so that can enjoy your hunt and have the greatest opportunity to harvest your world class bull.
*See combo hunt section for information and prices for the “Alaskan Grand Slam” which can be customized to include the harvest of multiple species.
Arrival & Departure Information
Our fly-out, trophy moose hunts are conducted from Grayling Lake at mile marker 150 of the Dalton Highway (approx. 25 miles south of Cold Foot). Prior to the hunt, hunters will meet as at our base camp, which is located at mile marker 145 of the Dalton Highway (approx. 30 miles S of Cold Foot) and a short 4 ½ hour drive on well-maintained roads, from Fairbanks, north on the Dalton Highway.
There are no stores for the purchase of food and supplies after you leave Fairbanks so please come prepared. Fuel, on the other hand, can be purchased at Yukon River Camp and Cold Foot which is a small community and truck stop at MP 175/Dalton Highway, it is also a great place to get an excellent hot meal.
We ask our hunters to be at our camp and ready to fly-out by 10:00 AM the day of their scheduled flight. Hunters must advise us if they will be arriving later. Many hunters allow extra time so that they arrive at our camp the night before their fly-out date. The day of your hunt, all hunters take part in a thirty minute orientation with us. During the orientation we check your license documentation, go over communications, transport of game meat, leave no trace camping, and other important information. Before you depart you must make sure that you have your gear including food, supplies, hunting equipment and camp equipment organized and packed according to Arrowhead Outfitters LLC’s size and weight limits. Each person’s items will be weighed to make sure they are in within their allowed (per person) weight limit of 70 lbs.
When it is time for your departure, from our base camp, you will drive five miles north to Grayling Lake where you will board one of our Maule float planes and depart for you hunt. After you depart, our crew will drive your vehicle back to our base camp, where it will remain “safe and secure” until your return. If you need to re-fuel for the trip back to Fairbanks, you must drive 25 miles north to Cold Foot. There are also rooms, hot showers and food service at this location.
For information on current fees and license information please refer to the Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game.

General Information for All Self-Guided Fly-out Hunts
Please Read Carefully!
Number of Hunters in Party: Unlimited, but typically 2-6.
Length of Stay: Unlimited (the price remains the same no matter the length of your hunt), but typically 5-7 Days (Caribou), 10-14 days (Moose) and 14 days or more (Sheep). For a combination package you should allow approximately 20 days. It is highly recommended that hunters allow ample time for their hunt and allow for weather days on either end of their hunt. Weather in the Arctic can be unpredictable at times and we will not fly in unsafe conditions.
Weight Limitation: 70 lbs per person including camp equipment. Typically in smaller aircraft you’d be limited to 50 lbs! You will be flying in a small aircraft with strict weight limitations so we ask that you keep mindful of this when preparing for your trip. Also, pack your gear, equipment and food in small, waterproof dry bags (not garbage bags), as these are much easier to transport in the plane. Suitcases, large duffle bags and hard gun cases, cases of soft drinks and other similar bulky and heavy items that exceed your weight limitations and our aircrafts carrying capacity, can be transported for additional cost. Bear Spray is allowed, however, it is critical that you advise our crew and your pilot that you have it as it must be safely stored (for the safety of our passengers and pilot) in the float compartment until you arrive at your camp location.
Field Communication: There is limited to no cell phone coverage in most backcountry areas in Alaska and no cell phone coverage after you depart Fairbanks with the exception of Prudhoe Bay, which has some cell phone coverage. Prior to your hunt it is mandatory that you rent and bring an IRIDIUM Satellite Phone (do not rent another brand, as it will not work). These phones are your best means of communication with our base camp and are a life saver if you have an emergency. IRIDUM satellite phones can be rented from a number of different Sat phone Rental Companies locally or online and are fairly economical running from $50 to $90 per week.
