I was drawn for an Alaska Muskox hunt. I can't believe it as the draw odds are pretty low. Has anyone gone? There are 2 options, using a guide or using a transportation service. Even though I do mostly diy hunts I'm leaning towards the guided hunt. Just hoping someone on the THF has gone and can make a recommendation.

That would be awesome. I'm with you. No sense in burning a good shot at a rare hunt. Go with a guide.

Hunt there at that time of the year, I would not hunt it without a guide. Go with their recommendations for clothing and equipment.

It appears they may suggest some white clothing for camo...looks a wee bit frigid.

Awesome!
Ive lived here in Alaska since 1987 and Never drawn one.
So Im headed to the Northwest Territories Canada next month.
I am guessing you drew Nunivak?...if so those trannsporters have it dialed in and get your ox.
Personally I would just use a transporter...but I have a LOT of experience here. If any doubts in your experience or abilities go guided. Its extreme!
Good Luck!!

It is on Nunivak Island. I can't believe I drew it either. When I received the draw results and it said successful I thought it would be for the Etolin island elk hunt. When I put in the code and found out it was for muskox I was shocked. was thinking Africa in spring of 17 but looks like it will Alaska again.
