The Best Hunting Gear for Alaska

Hunting in Alaska requires careful planning, physical exertion, mental fortitude, and high-quality gear. We love everything about it! From chasing blacktails in the rainforest to high-mountain sheep hunts, moose-calling mayhem to spotting-and-stalking bears, editors at Hunt Alaska have spent decades chasing game both big and small across the Great Land. And each year in the Summer issue, we bring you some of the items that helped us garner success during past hunts. We hope that some of these items make it into your hunting kit and help you be more successful during 2024 hunts.
