    I hunted with Max schwab and had an excellent hunt this past August shooting a ten year old full curl ram. I wouldn't hesitate to go with him again it was a great trip.

    Forum friends,

    It's disappointing to me that someone had a bad experience with one the the Guide/Outfitters here in Alaska. I'm not a guide but I do know quite a few of them and I know that some are really great, others not so much.

    If anyone does come to Alaska and experiences one of the later type, you do have some recourse. Alaska, through the Department of Commerce and Economic Development, has the Big Game Commercial Services Board (BGCSB). They would appreciate hearing about your experience and have some excellent investigators that would follow up with you.

    If I were planning a guided hunt in Alaska, I would call them and touch base about any guide/outfitter that you are considering. Be sure to ask if they are currently licensed and what areas and species that they are qualified for. Know what area the guide generally hunts and call the local Wildlife Trooper and the local Fish and Game biologist in those areas and seek their opinions.

    There is never a "guaranteed" hunt up here, weather is always an issue, but if you spend the time, effort and money to make a guided hunt here, you deserve the best from your chosen guide/outfitter.

    I do know a lot of them, never hesitate to contact me on the forum and I would be happy to do whatever I can to point you the right direction or steer you away from the wrong one, if possible.

    Good hunting to you all!

    I'd recommend max schwab. He's a great guy, and the hunts are a blast! He also has good deals on combo hunts!

    I did a hunt with Ellis Big Game guides, also called Devils Mountain Lodge, www.DevilsMountainLodge.com, out of Nebesna (Wrangell St. Elias National Park). I flew into Anchorage, rented a car and drove to the lodge. Great way to see Alaska. You can also get on their cancellation hunt notification list for a reduced price hunt if you are willing to wait. They also hunt Moose and Bear. Good guides and pilots.
