You should hunt up here!
You all should come up here and hunt. A guide is required for non-residents to hunt Brown/Grizzly, sheep and goats, but it's still a great place to hunt DIY and you can camp out with all the bears you want!
I got her done this year, AKaviator, and it was awesome!
No guide needed:
Great job Bitterroot! I saw in another post that you had taken a bull, he's a beauty!! What general area did ya hunt? If you look back in the Fairbanks Daily News Miner, you might see some photos of a bull a lucky hunter got this season...73" and scored over 250! Wish it was me.
Yours looks like an old bull and I love the photo, it expresses why we hunt!
If you look to come back up, send me a pm and I might be able to help out.

Alaska is more affordable than some may think. We did it for under $2K each.

By far the biggest expense was fuel. We already had the backcountry and hunting gear. No guides, no plane tickets, no trophy shipping. The expenses came down to fuel, license/tag ($485), and food. We did blow $100 between the three of us for a shower at a cheap hotel room once we got out of the woods, though.

My dream hunt awaits me! Hopefully some day.
I'm coming back to Alaska. Hunted brown bears and caribou. Killed both 7-8 years ago. Hunted with Rick grant. Tikchik air ventures. Anyway. Me and my hunting partner r coming up to do unguided float hunt for trophy moose.
Do u have an area that u would recommend for a trophy limited draw bull moose float hunt. Archery only muzz only. Anything that would increase the chance of trophy. We are very adept at rowing
Caribou black bear would just be collateral damage. But welcome
