The Alaska-Yukon Moose Hunts run the entire month of September. There are eight subspecies of moose recognized, and the Alaska-Yukon race (Alces alces gigas) is the largest.
Alaska Yukon Moose are the largest of the Moose Species and are found across Alaska. An adult bull can top the scales between twelve and sixteen hundred pounds.
Our bulls must be 50” or have 4-brow tines to be legal. Our average Alaska-Yukon Moose has a spread of 57”. We take 60” to 65” bulls every year. Pioneer Outfitters has a very near 100% kill rate on bulls of a trophy class.
In the Spring and Summer, the bulls are mostly loners that spend most of their days feeding on willows, birch and aspen twigs in the higher mountain valleys.
The lush forage, which is abundant during the summer months, gives the necessary nourishment to aid in the trophy size growth of their antlers, which are covered with soft velvet. Their antlers begin to harden in late August.
Horses are used on all hunts with Pioneer Outfitters.
You will ride 4-8 hours a day and cover 6-15 miles on an average day’s hunt. We hunt in the timber and at the timberline. Moose will not usually roam great distances, but sometimes can be very hard to catch up with.
With the shorter days and colder frosty nights the bulls will begin to rub the velvet from their antlers starting later in August.
Early September our moose will be in the timber and scattered out throughout the valley. In later September, the moose will start to push up above the timberline.
With normal weather conditions the rut will begin in late September. Our bulls generally start the rut
around the 15th of September, give or take a few days.
In Chisana, our Alaska-Yukon Moose population tends to be heavily browed with incredibly heavy palms. Mature and in their prime.

☆The Last Hunt of the Season, our 5th Hunt is an archery hunter’s dream.
During our last hunt, we offer our hunters extra days after Alaska-Yukon Moose season closes, to focus completely on our Interior Mountain Grizzly Bears, if they haven’t already harvested yet.
The rut comes late in September and the big old bulls finally come to roust the younger bulls and makes bow hunting exciting and incredibly rewarding for both our clients and our guides.
