Alaska Musk Ox Hunting

The musk ox hunt is by drawing only and for some reason you have better luck being drawn if I put you in as a party of two. This hunt is definitely a hunt of a lifetime and a lot of fun.

You will fly from Anchorage to Bethel and stay the night in a hotel. The next day you are required to go to a class given by the Fish and Game Department about the hunt and what to look for in big bull. From Bethel you will take a plane to McCoreoh where we will stay in a typical warm village home. You will meet the people of the village and have a chance to purchase or trade for hand-woven baskets and carvings. You must remember this is a "dry" village and absolutely no alcohol is allowed - you WILL go to jail for possession.

For the hunt, each person has his or her own snow machine (versus other outfitters that tie everyone in a sled and go). The weather up there is cold this time of year and you must dress for it - we will discuss the necessary cold weather gear when it gets closer to hunt time. It is imperative that you dress appropriately - for safety as well as comfort.

You are only allowed two bags; a gun case does count as one bag. The other bag can only weigh 70 pounds - any overage you must pay for if you are even allowed to bring it with you. The freight for the head and hide of the musk ox runs approximately $200.00 to Anchorage. To ship the animal home you must go through a licensed taxidermist because the musk ox is a federally controlled animal - this will also run approximately $200.00.
