Trophy hunting has been featured at Rainy Pass Lodge since it was built in 1937. Since then, hunters from around the world have been coming here to fullfil their hunting dreams. Guides Steve Perrins (Master Guide #123) and Buckey Winkley (Registered Guide #34) set a high standard for any huntsman or guide that makes Rainy Pass Lodge their base.
The Lodge is one of the few places in Alaska where you can hunt for six species of big game from one camp—Dall Sheep, Grizzly/Brown Bear, Black Bear, Moose, Caribou, and Wolf. We still rely on horses in most of our hunting camps. Most of the hunts conducted at Rainy Pass Lodge are for a combination of two or three species. There is truly no other place like it.
In the spring and fall we also guide on Kodiak Island for the largest bears in the world as well as Sitka Black Tail Deer and Mountain Goat (35+ years experience.) On Kodiak, you can stalk in the shadow of ancient volcanoes for the huge Alaskan Brown Bear, one of the world's highest ranked trophies. It is a joy to watch these big bears come out of their dens in May and even more thrilling to hunt them at close range on the salmon streams in October.
Once you decide you would like to hunt at Rainy Pass Lodge or Kodiak Island, send an e-mail or give us a call. This way, we can answer any additional questions you have and discuss available hunt dates and the prime time to hunt your desired animal. We can then select the hunt that is best for the trophy you want within the time frame that you have.
