Looking for recommendations for Alaskan moose guides. I'm also debating between an outfitted DIY hunt or a guided hunt. I'm typically a DIY guy but I also want to have a good opportunity at success. Any recommendations either way? Thanks!
Stan Parkerson with Denali Hunts. He is a bow only outfitter. I killed a good bull with him in ‘14. Great guy.

X2 on Stan. I hunted grizzly with him. He’s the best and is 100% in favor of bow hunting.

Stan's the man! Not only is he a great moose guide, but he's an all around great guy to be around.
Stan would have been my guy to. Never hunted moose with him, but grizzly twice. Takes only four guys a year I believe, maybe six. Not cheap, nobody is, but he is bow only and gets it.

Another vote for Stan. I killed a nice bull with him in 2013.
So it sounds like Stan is the man! No other recommendations out there?
I hunted with Eric Umphenor of Hunt Alaska in 2012 and had a cool hunt:) Really enjoyed hunting with Eric.
I was eyeing up a DIY float trip long time ago and never pulled the trigger....wish I had the prices are really getting crazy.

Fly in drop camp with Joe Shuster of Sportsman’s Air. Not cheap but way cheaper than guided. Great area for big bulls.
I’ve only done DIY but if I went back I’ve always thought I’d try Joe .
Curly Warren is a very top notch outfitter.
