The Alaska Outdoors Supersite offers a collection of video material on a variety of topics. They are designed to teach readers proper field techniques and tactics for various outdoor activities in Alaska, to highlight certain locations around the state, and to provide reviews of various equipment useful for Alaska backcountry trips. We're just getting started on this, so visit this page often for updates on new sessions and new topics.

Alaska Hunt Planning Service
Our Alaska hunt planning service provides coaching and mentoring for the purpose of teaching you how to plan and execute a successful big-game hunt in Alaska. We hold nothing back in terms of information; we freely discuss commercial service providers, locations, tactics, and all other aspects of your hunt. There is no time limit to our time together, and no additional charge for subsequent hunts. You pay one flat fee, regardless of the number of hunts. We cover the following areas of the hunt planning process:
- Pros and cons of float hunting versus drop-camp hunts.
- Budgeting and cost expectations.
- Alaska big-game habits and habitats for moose, caribou, brown bear, black bear, Dall sheep, and all other Alaska big-game species.
- Finding a hunt location that meets your needs.
- Locating reliable commercial services for transportation and gear.
- Logistics: flight scheduling, cargo, commercial air transport, equipment rental, lodging, vehicle rental, food purchases, licenses and tags, and more.
- Mapping your hunt location with the best hotspots and campsites, marking river mileage for float hunts, and creating paper hunt maps.
- Hunting tactics for moose, caribou, brown bear, black bear, Dall sheep and all other species in Alaska.
- How to conduct float hunts and drop-camp hunts.
- Field judging Alaska's big-game.
- Field care and transport of big-game meat and trophies.
- Post-hunt logistics.
