on Alaska Hunting Outfitter
"I have successfully hunted Kodiak Brown Bear, Dall Sheep and Alaskan Moose with Michael. What is most noteworthy are the actual hunts themselves.
In my opinion, you can't shoot game if you can't spot game. Michael has an uncanny ability to see game, evaluate the terrain and wind conditions and get his hunter to within a reasonable shooting distance. He doesn't believe in the taking of "long shots". Spot and stalk is the only way he likes to hunt, "Like Gentlemen", as Michael says.
Michael is extremely fit, but he will not "walk the legs off of his hunter". He quickly realizes his client's abilities and tailors the "hunting pace". It is after all, your hunt.
I have two more hunts booked with Michael for 2014; interior Grizzly Bear in the Talkeetna Mountains and Mountain Goat in Kodiak.
If you want to be safely guided on your "bucket-list" hunt... Horstman's Kodiak Guide Service should be your choice. If you hunt with Michael, you may get the opportunity to sample some "world-famous" hot cakes and you may even "build a little character" as well.
