Accommodations

Guided clients will stay either in 10 x 12 double-occupancy weather port tents with furnished beds and toyo stoves (during winter months) . Our most Epic Accommodation is a 10 x 32 Cedar Sauna with a walk-in shower that includes a screened porch for cooling down and a changing room.

Self-Guided clients will be transported to the field as soon as possible but may stay in the cabin if there is space available. You may want or need to pitch a tent in our yard and can use the amenities as needed. We will LOVE to share our food with you if there is extra (there usually always is). We will not leave you starving or stranded at the airport or out in the field!

While in-route to and from Takotna you may also stay in the town of Mcgrath at the Hotel Mcgrath B&B who are also the local butcher and expeditors in Mcgrath www.hotelmcgrath.com.

For those who will be embarking on the Exclusive Epic Alaska Multi-Season Package we will provide you with your own small heated cabin that will be yours for the entire year!

Meals

Life is too short to eat only freeze-dried food

Because we are not seriously constrained with weight while transporting our clients out into the field, we acquire handcrafted smoked meats, barbecue and bacon from Lazy Mountain BBQ out of Palmer Alaska. We pair these with rice, pasta or potatoe pouches that make dinner a simple task after a long day of hunting, butchering or packing. For breakfast we either heat up pre-made breakfast burritos or make sourdough pancakes, bacon and eggs. We snack all day while we are out hunting so we have sandwich fixings, chicken drumsticks, snacks and brats with us.

A cooler of meat and another cooler of eggs, bread, butter, veggies, fruit and LOTS of candy bars and we eat like kings while out hunting.

Meats are prepared a few weeks before the hunting season and vacuume sealed with 2 to 6 servings and include:

  • Beef: Smoked & Grilled Tri-tip; Beef Stew; Smoked Brisket
  • Pork: BBQ Pulled Pork; Smoked Pork Loin; Spare Ribs
  • Chicken & Poultry: Smoked BBQ Chicken (Thighs & Drumsticks); Smoked Turkey Breast
  • Handcrafted Bacon: (Honey Sriracha-Cherrywood; Honey Applewood & Hickory Pepper)
  • Smoked & Grilled Bratwurst
