Alaska Archery Hunt Report by Barry Cook

Barry with an awesome archery grizzly


Hunter: Barry Cook
Date: September 9-21, 2022
Trip Taken: Alaska Moose Hunt
Consultant: Julian Salutregui, Outdoors International

On my 10 day Alaska moose hunt I chose to use a bow and arrow, which made the hunt more challenging. I wasn’t able to pull off a moose, but did manage to get a 7ft grizzly bear at 32 yds.

We saw a ton of moose and made several attempts to get one. Just always came up short. That’s hunting though. The guides and outfitter were very accommodating and offered longer time for me to get a moose, but had to leave for work reasons.

Awesome huge claws on this grizzly bear.

How would you rate your Outdoors International Consultant?

Julian was very knowledgeable and great. He handled all my questions and concerns. He knew right away when I mentioned that I was a bowhunter, who to send me to. Most of the other outfitters I talked to recommend not taking a bow. I’m an avid bowhunter, and that was my goal. No matter of the outcome. Yea, so I didn’t get a moose, but how often do you get a Grizzly with a Bow, so yes it was a successful hunt for me.
