H&H Alaskan Outfitters offers a professional guiding service for brown bears, mountain goats, and Sitka black tail deer. We offer 1x1 hunts (1 hunter/ 1 guide) and 2x1 hunts. Hunts may also be customized upon request. We are more than happy to discuss your options.
We conduct fair chase, spot and stalk hunts. Our camps operate with a ‘leave-no-trace’ mentality and we avidly support conservation efforts.
We utilize ‘Artic Oven’ four-season tents in our base camps. These tents provide adequate room, comfort and protection from the elements, while still allowing us to be mobile. Cots and portable heat are also provided. We attempt to cater to each hunters’ dietary needs as much as possible.
Depending upon the hunter, when necessary, we may also set up spike camps to probe further inland. These camps are not as spacious, but still comfortable and will keep you dry. This style of hunting requires that the hunter be capable of carrying up to 30 pounds, including personal items, sleeping bag and pad.
All commercial airfare is the client’s responsibility. Also, all meals and lodging while waiting to be flown out to base camp is the hunter’s responsibility. If you should tag out and choose to depart from base camp early, the extra air charter cost will be the client’s responsibility.
Hunting days may be lost due to bad weather and hunters may be delayed in the field, well past their scheduled completion date. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your travel arrangements.
Kodiak Island Hunts: You will need to make arrangements from your residence to the City of Kodiak, on Kodiak Island, via Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. It is strongly recommended to book Alaska Airlines flights from ANC-ADQ-ANC. A list of local hotels will be provided.
Alaska Peninsula Hunts: You will need to make your travel arrangements from your residence to the City of Kenai or Homer, AK, via Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. A list of local hotels will be provided.
Alaska’s weather can be extreme. Fall storms can produce winds in excess of 70 mph that drives rain horizontally. We will also see the loss of day light and temperatures dropping from the mid-40’s to freezing.
Spring time you can still experience snow and torrential wind driven rains as well. Wind is very typical so having the proper clothing to stay comfortable in these environments is essential. A gear list will be provided.
All payments should be made payable to H&H Alaskan Outfitters. To secure a future hunt, a $1500 non-refundable deposit is required. The remaining balance will be paid as outlined on the hunt contract. Hunts can be paid before the outlined deadlines if you so choose. Your hunt will not commence until the complete balance is paid. No refunds of any monies paid will be issued, but in most cases, we will re-schedule or transfer the deposit to a friend or family member.
All hunts include one guide per hunter (unless specified otherwise). Outside of your personal gear, we provide all the essentials in base camp. We cover all air charter costs if the hunter stays the full term of the scheduled hunt. Professional field care of your trophy and shipping preparation upon leaving base camp. Every hunter will become a two-year member of the Alaska Professional Hunter’s Association, which supports a non-resident hunter preservation fund. The money raised from this fund helps protect all hunter’s rights, land access, and non-resident hunting interests in Alaska.
Shipping your trophies and souvenirs home. Preparation or packaging of your game meat. Charter flight for departing the field early from base camp. Firearms are not included, but can be arranged upon request.
Hunting license and tags. Personal gear and toiletries. Sleeping bag (rated for 0-20 degrees, compact and capable of being carried to a spike camp), sleeping pad (also compact and capable of being carried into a spike camp).
Tips. To start with, it should be understood that the tip is not required. Any tips to your guides should be based on the job that they did for you and are greatly appreciated.
The 7 P’s: Proper, Prior, Planning, Prevents, Piss, Poor, Performance! It is good to be lucky, but I choose to create success. Things like the weather, acts of nature and bear movement cannot be controlled. Having top quality gear and equipment, professional experienced guides, experienced pilots, meticulous attention to details, quality and well managed game populations WILL tip the scales in our prospective clients hunt of a life time.
Our hunters have 100% opportunity. The better shape you are in the better your experience will be, including your chance of success. The number one thing I recommend to every client is to talk with your physician and come up with a workout plan to make walking in uneven terrain, climbing, wading streams, and hiking easier for your hunt. This choice is not an easy one to commit too, but being physically prepared is just as important as practicing at the range.
Mental toughness is also important! Mentally hunting in Alaska can test anyone. It is long days spent glassing from a vantage point in cold, wind, rain and sometimes seeing little game activity. Keeping a positive attitude throughout is essential to being successful.
We operate two guide use areas on Kodiak Island. Our Kodiak bear hunts take place in Kiliuda Bay or South Ugak Bay. Both hunts are an approximate 20-minute float plane ride south-east of Kodiak.More Info
The most underrated trophy in all of North America is the North American mountain goat. More hunters have been injured or died trying to venture into the steep terrain these animals call home.More Info
The Sitka black-tail deer is a close cousin to the Columbia black-tail. These deer are a great hunting experience. Hunting deer where some of the world’s largest bears call home adds a bit of excitement.More Info
We currently do not offer hunts for moose, caribou, black bear, grizzly or dall sheep. However, we can refer you to a trusted and tested outfitter. We are more than happy to help with the planning of your Alaska hunting or fishing adventure, even if it doesn’t involve us directly.
