Joe and Victoria Letarte came to Alaska in 1979 and have been involved in the Big Game Hunting industry since that time. Joe has a Master Guide license with experience spanning from the Brooks Range to the Alaska Range, and from the Aleutians to most of Southeast Alaska. With knowledge of hunting in such a vast area, it has enabled Joe to select the best game rich areas in the state to conduct their business. Currently, hunts are conducted in three geographically different locations, the Alaska Range, the Yukon River Valley and the Tongass National Forest.

In the Alaska Range, the focus is on Dall Sheep, Moose, Interior Grizzly, Caribou, Wolf, and Wolverine. This area in the heart of the majestic Alaska Range features broad valleys, sprawling glaciers and abundant game populations that offer quality trophies in an unspoiled wilderness setting.

In the Tongass National Forest, our operations are based out of Yakutat. This is one of the most game rich areas in the world, hosting large populations of Brown Bears, Black Bears, Mountain Goat and the largest Salmon runs found in Alaska. This coastal wilderness of old growth Sitka Spruce in the forelands gives way to the Glacier strewn valleys of the Brabazon Mountains, then rises up toward the majestic St. Elias Range. This mystical wilderness is home to a rare color phase of the Black Bear known as the Glacier Bear only to be found in this area.

Our third area of operation is in the Yukon River Valley. This particular area is one of the most remote wilderness areas left on earth. Our concession of 4.3 million acres is one of the largest Black Bear concessions in the world. This wetland is ideal habitat for Black Bear and hosts the largest population of Black Bear found in North America. The cinnamon color phase is quite abundant in this area also, so along with the large number of Black Bear, this allows for a bag limit of three bears per hunter. A good population of Interior Grizzlies also hold claim to this

remote wilderness area.

Southeast Alaska – Yakutat

Yakutat is a remote fishing village located on the Gulf of Alaska, 380 miles southeast of Anchorage in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. The area is a hidden treasure for fly fishermen and spincasters alike. Bordered to the west by the Malaspina glacier which is the largest glacier in North America and the Brabazon mountain range to the East. The raw beauty of the land is equal to none. From these glaciers and mountains flow the Situk, Italio, and Akwe Rivers and many others. These rivers have hosted runs of salmon for thousands of years! Their raw, unspoiled beauty provides the best fishing found in North America today.

Other inhabitants of the area that can be seen, are brown bears, black bears, mountain goat, bald eagles, seals, sealions, wolves, and wolverines.

Our trips are fully guided and outfitted. They produce the finest fishing experience Alaska has to offer. Our stream-side cabins provide warm, comfortable accommodations for your trip.

Our Silver Salmon trips take place on the Italio and Akwe Rivers. They provide excellent opportunities for fly fishing and spincasters alike. You will be fishing the lower stretches and mouths of these rivers as they flow into the Gulf of Alaska for Bright Fish just returning from the ocean. They return in large numbers from September thorough mid-October. This trip can be combined with duck and goose hunting.

Meat

You are welcome to take your meat with you. Meat that will fit with you and your gear on your outbound flight is included. If there are any extra flights for meat, you must pay for those flights in advance.

Flying

Flying in Alaska’s back country requires a great deal of skill, experience and knowledge. Safety is our number one concern. We have picked our Air Services for both safety and experience. They do their best to ensure prompt service, but they cannot and will not fly in bad conditions, (heavy rain, fog, high winds, etc.). The weather is out of our control, we rely on the expert knowledge and experience of our pilots. Your gear must be limited to 45 lbs. If you and your gear cannot go in and out of camp in one load, you will be charged for extra flights.
