HUNT REPORT: Alaska Archery Grizzly Bear | Barry Cook


HUNTER: Barry Cook
HUNT: Alaska Combo Hunt
CONSULTANT: Julian Salutregui, Outdoors International

September 9-21, 2022

On my 10 day Alaska moose combo 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.


How would you rate your trip overall?

Great trip. They work their ass off to accommodate and try in every effort to make sure you are comfortable and happy and most of all safe.

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.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
