About Alaska Hunting
These are real wilderness hunts! There are no roads, no telephones, no means of communication once you are in your hunting camp. Our hunts are based out of small Alaskan Villages, with small, gravel runways.

Arrangements for commercial airfare out of Anchorage, Alaska is available. We will check on each hunting camp every few days. Weather can prevent us from checking on you, or transporting you on schedule. If we do get behind schedule, we will service the camps that are the most overdue first.
We pride ourselves on providing you a great hunt with high success rates, but even our best efforts do not guarantee you a trophy! 
Baggage: 
Magnum Alaska Outfitters assumes no liability for loss to baggage in transit on commercial carriers. We recommend purchasing the travel insurance covering your baggage from your travel agent.

Meat Handling Policy:
Transportation can be arranged from the village to ship your meat to a processor of your choice in Anchorage. The cost of transporting and processing the meat are entirely the hunters cost, see cost above. We will make a recommendation and information available so you can arrange for timely and cost effective handling of the meat. Please feel free to contact these processors for information about handling your game meat prior to entering the field.

Additional Cost the Hunter is Responsible For:
Air fare to the remote villages in Alaska, food and lodging in Alaska (other than in hunting camp), State of Alaska hunting license and
big game tag fees (to be purchased in Anchorage, Alaska) meat transportation and processing fees, trophy transportation, crating, expediter and preparation fees of trophies. Cost to ship meat from the villages to Anchorage is approximately 30 cents a pound, and approximately 70 cents a pound from Anchorage to cities in the lower 48 states. If weather prevents you from arriving or departing on the scheduled dates, you will need to make accommodations at your expense. Rooms in villages range from $75 to $100 per night. If gear exceeds limitations, additional charges are the responsibility of the hunter. Fees are subject to change by the State of Alaska every year.

Responsibilities of Hunting Clients:
Clients are responsible for complying with State of Alaska hunting regulations and as advised by the Magnum Alaska Outfitters guide, for bringing appropriate clothing, equipment and firearm or bow as recommended by Magnum Alaska Outfitters for preparing for the hunt by studying the supplemental information and lists provided, for following normal social behavior patterns with fellow camp members. Magnum Alaska Outfitters may ask a client to leave the field if they feel that the person's further participation may be detrimental to staff or to other clients.

Tips For a Successful Hunt:
There are many things that can reduce the success of your trip. Some of them are:

  • *Weather - this has a very big influence on the outcome of your hunt.
  • *Physical Condition-some hunters are out of shape and not able to go the distance! You should be able to walk several miles over rough, swampy, hilly terrain- mainly tundra.
  • *Unguided- hunters must be able to pack their animals back to the established camp.
  • *Marksmanship- Nearly every year someone goes home empty handed because they could not hit the animal they were shooting at!

Weather and Airfare:
When participating in an Alaskan hunting trip, there is always the possibility of delay, particularly due to weather. Bad weather can prevent us from transporting you to and from your camp on schedule. When a major storm front moves through Alaska, it can put us behind schedule. When the weather breaks, be assured we will service the most overdue camps first. When purchasing tickets, keep in mind that the "budget" fares often carry restrictions. In many cases, the "budget" tickets are valid for travel only on specific dates. We recommend using the Sportman's Fare offered within Alaska by many rural air carriers. We suggest a "buffer" day between leaving the field (village) and leaving Anchorage International Airport. this day can avoid any additional charges or delays by national airlines.
