Unguided Moose Hunting in Alaska

Our hunters have had incredibly successful unguided moose hunting over the years.

An unguided moose hunt in Alaska is one of our most asked about trips. There is WAY more demand than quality supply and we’ve been booked seasons in advance for YEARS now. Each season however, a few spots end up opening up so be sure to reach out and at least get your name on the list. We only work with a few (vetted) transporters that have a proven track record and offer the best unguided moose hunting in Alaska.

Our unguided moose clients success hovers around 75% with an opportunity rate of 90%-100% depending on the year. These numbers are amazing considering this is a DIY moose hunt.

The hunters who are successful get up before light, eat breakfast, and hunt hard all day. They eat lunch in the field, and return to camp after dark to eat dinner. The day should consist of glassing and calling, while paying close attention to the wind direction.

Your Transporter isn’t just going to drop you off and pick you up.

They have developed  world-class logistical support starts the moment you book your hunt and continues until you return home. We’re with you every step of the way, ensuring that your unguided moose hunting experience is safe, enjoyable, and successful.

Our areas are home to some exceptional bulls and our unguided moose hunters have enjoyed tremendous success on this hunt over the years.



Experience unguided moose hunting without the hassle of providing your own camp gear and food. If you choose this option, the transporter will provide all the gear and food you need, ensuring a seamless and comfortable adventure. Years of experience have allowed them to perfect the gear they offer, ensuring you have everything necessary for a successful and enjoyable hunting trip.

You’ll Need to Bring Your Essentials

While the transporter will supply gear and food, you will need to bring your personal gear, hunting equipment, and your preferred weapon. Your familiarity with your own equipment ensures you’re comfortable and confident during your hunt.

Moose hunting in Alaska is an adventure you'll never forget!



If you prefer to bring your own camp gear and food, then this is the option for you. We understand your desire to use the gear you’re comfortable with. We will work with you on selecting which gear you need and provide you with suggestions to get your gear to Alaska. This package provides you with the same logistical support as the fully outfitted package.


Unguided moose hunting isn’t for everyone, and a guided hunt should be considered prior to booking.

They can be physically demanding at times, so we recommend the hunters be in good condition when they arrive. However, if you’re the type of hunter this appeals to, the area houses some exceptional bulls. If that all sounds like too much, we do offer some incredibly successful guided moose hunts in this area as well. In fact, if you have the budget for a guided moose hunt, we DO recommend that you go that route.

  1. Cody Kuck

    Our first trip to Alaska could not have went any better.

  2. Shaun Smith

    It was definitely a tough moose hunt, as we got hammered with rain, hail and wind almost everyday. Fortunately we stuck it out and were able to harvest two awesome moose. Can’t wait to get back up there for another Alaska adventure!

  3. Mark Miller

    I called in five bull moose in the first three days of my moose hunt. I can’t think of a better unguided hunt than that.

  4. Cullen Wagner

    Our unguided moose outfitter spent the time in the off-season to ensure their hunters have the best chance at a successful and enjoyable hunt. We were into moose every time we left camp.

  5. Tyler Crocket

    Even with a few hiccups, it was a great Alaska Adventure!

  13. Dustin Moore

    All and all, I had an amazing moose hunting experience with memories that will last a lifetime, and I couldn’t be happier.

  14. Brent Thompson

    Got to experience a true wilderness adventure and got a nice moose to boot.

  15. Joe Lazenby

    Moose hunting is hard, but man was it awesome!

  16. Shaun Thomas

    I thought the outfitter did a great job. They guys seemed super organized.

  17. Kyle Hanson

    What a roller coaster of a trip but I’ve come to embrace the ride that Alaska seems to take us on!

  18. Josh Whitney

    Over all our moose hunt was great.

  19. Adam De Ruyter

    Coming from Iowa and having never hunted moose before, my dad and I weren’t exactly sure what to expect on a DIY moose hunt. Our worries of not seeing any moose vanished when we called in two 50 inch bulls 20 minutes after getting our camp set up!

  20. Skyler Nielsen

    Even though my uncle did not tag out it was a moose hunt of a lifetime.

  21. David Rees

    With our flight home from Alaska, the hunt was over, but the memories keep going on!

  22. Brian Stone

    In general, the support we received was great, and the experience was wonderful. I would definitely work with this outfitter again in the future.

  23. Eric Larson

    If a moose hunt is on your list this trip will not disappoint!!!

  24. Jason Glasson

    We had a great moose hunt.

  25. Rod Emerson

    We had a great adventure!
    Only suggestion is to allow groups to organize items to fly into field prior to when it is time to fly out.

  26. Kent Goodman

    One of the best wilderness hunts I have ever been on!!

  27. Tom Woods

    Our moose hunt was very well organized, and my son and I had a great time. We were lucky enough to see tons of moose, and luckier to have been able to harvest two great bulls and share the memories together.

  28. Nick Woods

    OI and the outfitter were both very organized and helpful. We saw a ton of moose, and were able to both tag out on great bulls.

  29. Carl Woody

    The moose hunt was everything I expected. We hunted the marsh flats and saw moose everyday of our hunt.
    The key piece of gear was our waders.

  30. Jim Peak

    We had a blast! I would highly recommend this moose hunt.

  31. Mark White

    The moose hunt overall was a great success and we’ve already re-booked for 2022!

  32. Randall Sanders

    This hunt not only met, but exceeded all expectations!

  33. Jack Dillon

    Communication at hangar could’ve been a little better. Would love to go again. Staff was friendly and informative. Good equipment provided and more than enough food.

  34. Jason King

    Pilot and flight into field was good and pilot returning us was exceptional and very personable. The inReach in-field communication with the outfitter was less than acceptable.

  35. David Rozacky

    My moose hunt was great. Need to update the frequently asked questions. Many details have changed.

  36. Russel Ferster

    The outfitter’s staff was excellent.

  37. Joel Frazier

    The Outfitter did a great job of getting us into the field and getting our camp and moose meat out in a timely manner.

  38. Ryan Garrett

    I was disappointed with the service/planning/communication that we received; even with the frustration, we had a great trip.

  39. Ryan Tow

    Our Alaska moose hunt went great. There was wildlife everywhere, and we were blessed to harvest three bull moose. The moose in our area were in the 30 to 50 inch range. We did a drop camp and we used all of our own gear. We just used the outfitter as a transport and we did not have a guide. They did a great job for what we needed them for. They dropped us off in the field the day we asked and they picked us up the day we requested. The staff was friendly.

  40. Troy Goodnough

    Kyle Hanson was always available for questions. We saw moose each day. We all tagged out on three bull moose by day 10.

  41. Matt Tremonti

    Two friends and I did the unguided Alaska moose hunt you guys offer. It was a great experience and a hunt of a lifetime!
    The hunt will test you at times, mentally and physically. The weather it’s self will drain you. As far as the hunt goes, it was great. We saw a lot of moose and all three of us tagged out on bulls.

  42. Josh Unser

    It’s hard to put this experience into word. Everything was perfect and could not have gone better. We felt welcomed and well taken care of from the pickup at the airport. The crew did a great job of preparing us for what to expect in the field.

    They put us in a great spot full of moose. Communication in the field was great and on point. Food was great and a lot of it.

  43. Jesse Prier

    Overall, our unguided moose hunt was great experience. All four hunters were successful. We were advised against it, I’m sure due to not having that many chances at moose, or the limitations of the area we were in. But having four guys to pack out a moose was very handy and made short work of a big task.

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.

Jesse Neveau

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.
