10 Day Moose Hunt
Our area has place more trophies near the top of the record books than any other area. We grew up here and have hunted most of our lives for moose big or small. Now we give you the opportunity to join us for the giants this area has to offer. Most bulls are taken near the river using spot and stalk or calling, although we are not afraid to hike several miles for a trophy. With some drifting done on the quiet rivers listening and calling, this is an excellent opportunity for disabled hunters to harvest trophy moose. We also have a very high success rate with bow hunters. The meat from the harvest is a very important part of the hunt for our guides and other personnel who miss personally harvesting an animal. It is our policy, first to offer the meat to the needy (usually elders in the surrounding area) then divide the rest between our crew. If you wish to take meat from your animal with you, arrangements can be made at your expense.

Equipment list for fall hunts:
Fall hunts for Moose and/or Grizzly are conducted out of open riverboats. The weather at this time can be freezing or close to it. Combined with the chill factor created by moving at moderate speeds produces winter-like conditions. Hunters must be prepared for very cold traveling at times. Most of the actual hunting is done by walking to likely habitat and calling or sitting for extended periods. So one must be able to add or remove layers as needed.
The first layer of long underwear should be poly or the like for wicking (at least 2 pair) some include a liner sock in this category and a balaclava to cover the head and neck. 3 pair of heavy and 3 pair of medium socks. (Important if you have newer boots) Insulated Gore-Tex hunting boots. Wool or similar pants for quiet stalking. Please don't expect to stalk with cotton or nylon! Heavy wool or poly field shirt. At times you will be hiking with only these layers on, so they must be excellent quality. We still have not found any pants better than the old wool hunting pants. An insulated camo wool or fleece jacket. Some hunters from more southern climes have found it necessary to add an insulating layer of fleece pants for a third layer. The outer layer should be waterproof and large enough to fit comfortably over the other two or three layers. The camo parka with attached hood and bibs of Gore-Tex or similar material are critical to withstand the common wind, rain, or snow. An insulated 'musher' or 'Yazoo' type hat that straps under the chin or a baseball cap and fleece cap if you have the balaclava. Insulated Gore-Tex Gloves. Insulated hip boots.
Other items needed are common things like a small flashlight and a headlamp. (Both) A katodyne water treatment bottle (nice when you can just add water from any creek or lake) and a simple water bottle.
Your day-pack must be large enough to add your extra clothing on top of your personal hunting items.
(Ammo, knife, camera, water, lunch, etc.)
Not unlike siting in your weapon, your gear should be fitted before your travels. It's surprising how many times hunters have shown up and tried their gear for the first time. Remember that there is no place to buy replacement equipment in Galena.
