Into the wilderness

Self-Guided Hunting in Alaska

The team return to the magnificent Alaskan wilderness for another epic adventure, this time self-guided hunting, offering new opportunities, but also new challenges.
The journey into the Alaskan wilderness begins around 110 miles north of Anchorage. An entire years meticulous planning and preparation has finally led them to the start of this epic journey. Every item of equipment has been carefully chosen for its specific purpose and to keep the weight to a bare minimum – there is no space for hunting gear you don’t need.

The beautiful afternoon sunshine belies the very hostile nature of this environment.

The Bush pilot, Cole Hawkins of Hawk Air Alaska, drops them into the valley between two mountains, which will become home for the next few weeks. The first task is setting up camp and building shelters, under clear skies and bright sunshine, however the weather in Alaska is very changeable. Warm and sunny one moment could soon turn into dense fog and torrential downpour.
Once camp is set-up heading out onto the ridge and glass over the topography of the area is a must. The beautiful afternoon sunshine belies the very hostile nature of this environment. Here they must keep their wits about them and prepare for the worst that Mother Nature can bring. The focus is now very much on the challenge ahead.
