My recommendation of Michael Horstman comes from experiencing 3 hunts of a lifetime with him. Start with Kodiak brown bear.
Just check his track record on harvesting a big one. You’ll see Mike’s name o the wall of Fish and Game as many times as anyone for taking record class bear. Mike knows how to get the job done even when it takes a lot of effort. After my first successful bear hunt, I had no doubt I would go with Mike a second time.
My daughter and I put in for mountain goat tags and she connected. Mike took us up the hill and found her a trophy and she got it. The third hunt was for musk ox on Nunivak Island. Mike knew how to find the animals and made sure my daughter got a trophy bull. More hunts with Mike are in our future and I would recommend him for any level of hunter.
