Common Questions about Self- Guided Moose Hunts in Alaska

How do I get all my moose hunting gear to McGrath, Alaska?

You can mail it USPS Ground to the hotel you are staying at in McGrath. For a small fee, they will pick it up and store it until your arrival. You will want to do this 2 months before your hunt to ensure it gets there on time. You should send your camping gear and freeze dried food and you can bring your personal gear and gun/bow with you. You will be able to purchase some fresh food and fuel for your camp stove at the store in McGrath.

How do I get my moose back home from AK?

There are several options for getting the meat back. Initially, it all goes to the butcher in McGrath and they can donate what you do not want and give you shipping options for the meat you want to send home. They can also handle shipping your cape and antlers back or you can cut the antlers off the skull plate and box them up and mail them home.

What is your success rate on self-guided moose hunts?

We were 75% successful last season

Should I do a fixed camp moose hunt or a float hunt?

Fixed camp is the most popular. Floats are a lot more work and you must be in excellent physical condition. See the article "Which hunt is the right hunt for you."

How long have you been in business and how long have you been hunting moose in this area of Alaska?

Willow Air has been in business 50 years and has been hunting this area for over 40 Years.

Why do you moose hunt so far from your home base?

There are a lot of airplanes on the road system and to get this type of quality hunting you must go far enough so it is difficult to reach from the road system without refueling. I also think this area has some of the best moose hunting in Alaska.
