Alaska Hunting Trips: Moose & Black Bear

Alaska is the "last frontier", a wild and challenging land where moose and bear roam a vast, untouched landscape. Rust's specializes in flying hunters into these quality hunting areas.

Your Alaska hunting trip begins on our dock on Lake Hood, the world's largest seaplane base, at the Anchorage airport. After takeoff, our experienced pilots will fly you 150 miles west into roadless territory, a mountainous area dotted with lakes where both rifle and bowhunters have claimed many exceptional trophies. Here, in the legendary Lake Clark, Mulchatna and Stony River valleys, is where you'll find trophy moose.

Alaska Moose & Black Bear Hunting

Depending on your plans, you can hunt moose or black bear singly or in combination. Many of the game areas provide excellent opportunities, but if you prefer the experience of hunting in two areas, a move to a second site can be pre-arranged. At the end of your hunt we'll return to transport you, your game and trophies back to Anchorage.

Rust's unguided fly-in hunts are the simple and inexpensive way to hunt the "last frontier". Our nearly 50 years of experience guarantee that you'll be hunting in the right place, at the right time. This season, plan an Alaska fly-in hunting trip with Rust's Flying Service and "let experience be your guide"!

"This is how we started our business. My father, Henry, loved to introduce clients to the best game opportunities in Alaska. Today, we continue his commitment to hunters and their big game experiences."   — Todd Rust

  • Meat should be hung in game bags.

  • Help us keep Alaska beautiful! Please bag unburnable refuse for transport back to Anchorage.

Game processing and shipping

There are several reputable wild game processors in Anchorage who are happy to quote rates for processing and shipping your order. If your game is brought in mid-hunt, it can be picked up by the processor of your choice.

We do recommend Alaska Sausage and Seafood.
