Professional guide and outfitter Don Willis, owner of Alaska's Extreme Hunting, has been providing excellent hunting trips in Alaska for years and the question always comes up: Why does hunting in Alaska cost so much? Don guides for Trophy Alaskan Brown Bear and wants the prospective hunter to understand a few simple facts about Alaska hunting, and also, why the expense is WORTH IT for a quality hunt.
Don writes, "One must first consider the incredible sheer size of the state of Alaska, comprised of over 587,000 square miles, twice the size of Texas and then to access and travel to the best trophy big game destination area's which are typically located in the state's most remote area's spread across Alaska can be expensive. Travel expenses alone to and from your home to Alaska are expensive and It is common for your travel costs associated to access your hunting areas to exceed your initial cost to Alaska.
"Road systems cover only a very small percentage of the total state. 90% of these big game hunts are accessed by plane only and costs associated with transportation by bush plane are very expensive. For a professional guide in Alaska to provide the air - support, accommodations, staff, support gear, and food to these wilderness areas cost are very profound, not to mention costs associated with permitting, insurance and when the top outfitters holds a exclusive private land use permit as well, the costs are simply mind-boggling.
"Also understand that the cost of living in Alaska generally is higher than the lower continuous 48 states. So in short, when considering hunting in Alaska, it will be an experience like no other hunting destination you have experienced, however in most cases, so will the cost's associated to hunt the incredible state of Alaska."
So if you hold a dream of hunting a one of North America's fiercest animals, the Alaska Brown Bear, that is a dream that can come true! Be prepared and knowledgeable about the expenses, and take advantage of reputable professionals that know the game, the terrain, the government policies, and most importantly, how to put you ON THE BEAR!
