I enjoy hunting and fishing. Most of the meat I eat is wild game like whitetail deer, elk, caribou or moose. (I am cooking the meat from the caribou shown above as I write this.)
I am extraordinarily lucky to be able to live and hunt in Alaska. A few years ago I did a six week solo hunt for sheep, caribou and moose. After my return I decided to put together documentary of that trip, below.

A few years ago I wrote a popular deer hunting book called Hunting Big Whitetails, now in it’s third printing. Click here for more information on my book and hunting whitetail deer. Pictured is my 2011 whitetail, which weighed 250 lbs field dressed, on a good scale.
Have you ever dreamt of “living off the land” for weeks or months at a time, eating nothing but fish and game and berries, and other plants you’ve foraged. Now you can read all about it in my book Alone in the Fortress of the Bears: 70 Days Surviving Wilderness Alaska: Foraging, Fishing, Hunting Now available in paper, Kindle and audio book!
I made a video about a fishing trip on the Goodnews River in Alaska. The fishing for silver salmon and rainbows and char was great. You can stream it right now on Amazon. I also fish for kings. Jim Griffin, shown, with a freshly landed fish. Click here for more information.
Buck, I have hunted Alaska multiple times, but I have never done a float hunt. After watching your video on your dall sheep, caribou, moose, combo float hunt, I need to do this before I get to old. My problem is I don’t have contacts in that part of Alaska for the logistics, rafts, flight services, and other things. I was wondering if you would be interested in working with Me on planning something or could you refer Me to someone who could. what I think I would like to do would be a two man caribou float hunt on… Read more »
Hi Marcus, I’m glad you liked my video! Congratulations on already hunting Alaska and on starting your plan for another hunt. I don’t do hunt planning, but here are some places in Fairbanks that do raft rentals. Check them out and compare: First is Pristine Ventures, The next is Blue Moose Rafting. Another is Yukon Air, which is also an air taxi. Two books I’d highly recommend for your planning (and I would start planning a year ahead of time) are: Hunt Alaska Now. I’d read that book cover to cover. Float Hunting Alaska’s Wild Rivers. Another outstanding book. I… Read more »
