Big Game Hunting

Muskeg Excursions offers high-quality guided Brown Bear, Black Bear, Mountain Goat and Sitka Black-tail hunting adventures. We hunt southern Prince of Wales Island for Black Bear and Sitka Black-tailed Deer and the south end of the Misty Fjords National Monument and Wilderness Area for Brown Bear, Black Bear and Mountain Goat. 


Fishing Adventures

Dolly Varden start in the creeks around mid June. Sockeye Salmon start around the first of July. Then it's Pink and Chum Salmon in late July. Silver salmon run in late August through September. Natural Cutthroat Trout are in the rivers, creeks and lakes also. Crab, shrimp and saltwater bottomfish fishing is second to none.

Deluxe lodge accommodations, the Hollis Cabin or remote tent camps are used for these  packages. 

If it's fly or spincast fishing, Muskeg Excursions, with your input, can put together a package that will be a true adventure.
