Outfitter's Notes:

Al Gilliam and Pam Coulter own one of the oldest and most respected personalized guided hunting and recreational businesses in Alaska. Every aspect of our service is specifically managed to provide a low volume of clients with the best opportunities to enjoy quality time, while visiting one of planet earths most beautiful and dynamic regions - Haines, Alaska and the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve.
 
This unique ecosystem of mainland Southeast Alaska is immediately adjacent to the northern boundary of Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park, and it also shares an eastern boundary with British Columbia’s Tatshenshini/Alsek Provincial Park. Those two vast parks are themselves contiguous with Alaska’s Wrangle Saint Elias National Park, and the Yukon’s Kluane National Park.
 
Together, those adjacent parklands comprise 49 million acres of the largest protected ecosystem on earth…an area which is internationally recognized by the United Nations, Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, [UNESCO] as a world heritage site.
 
Al and Pam’s permitted hunt guiding area is within Game Management Sub-Units 1-C and 1-D, which is comprised of State of Alaska, BLM, and State Park managed lands that are embraced by the splendor of the world heritage site to the northwest, and by the strikingly juxtaposed emerald waters and lush forests of Alaska’s Inside Passage to the southeast.
 
The Alaska State Parks managed 49,000 acre Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve marks the transition point between the maritime climate of Southeast Alaska, and the interior regions of the World Heritage Site.   
 
Al Gilliam was instrumental in creating the Eagle Preserve in 1983, and today Al & Pam continue to earn their livelihood guiding hunters, photographers and river rafters within the splendor of the greater Haines area, and the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Al posesses a Master Guides license, which is the highest level of all guide licenses.  This means that Al has been violation free, has a perfect record, and I has been in business longer than 15 years.

Black Bear:

There is no other area of Alaska which offers better opportunities to harvest a wider range of color phase Black Bears than in our hunt area. Approximately 35% of our Black Bears are of a color phase which ranges from nearly white, to blond, copper, blue and chocolate. Occasionally a bear may have darker colored legs than the body, or have some other unusual color scheme.  Some bears are so unique that they are locally called a “line-back cinnamon bear,” because of a distinctive reddish colored line which runs along the spine of some copper-colored bears. Browse our black bear hunts listed below. Ask about our combo hunts where you can hunt a black bear and brown bear or a black bear and mountain goat on the same trip!

Brown Bear:

The majority of our Brown Bear hunts take place within the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, and the surrounding greater Chilkat region near Haines, Alaska. Mature male Coastal Brown Bears travel between the Chilkat region and the adjacent, enormous wilderness parklands by established routes across the ice fields and through mountain passes as they navigate their vast home-range. This influx of migrating Brown Bears supports a diversified gene pool, and it also provides a ready source of mature male bears which maintains a healthy hunting environment in which to pursue Southeast Alaska’s largest predators.

Our Brown Bears are of a very wide color range, from dark chocolate through a variety of color schemes from blond to multi-colored.  Some bears have such a varied color combination that they are locally referred to as “CALICO” bears, which are most certainly one of the most coveted trophies in all of North America. It is not unusual for a hunter to  purposefully harvest a smaller calico bear, because of the striking coloration. Brown Bears in our hunt area will get up to 10-feet squared, and we target bears over 8-feet squared. Browse our brown bear hunts listed below. Ask about our combo hunts where you can hunt a brown bear and black bear or a brown bear and mountain goat on the same trip!

Mountain Goat:

It is a scientifically proven fact that the Mountain Goats of the greater Haines area are the largest bodied Mountain Goats in Southeast Alaska, and they are very likely the largest Goats in the world. Over many years of hunting gigantic Billy Goats, my claims of harvesting 400 pound Mountain Goats were dismissed by biologists… until the Alaska Department of Fish and Game recently instigated a Mountain Goat survey in which they darted and weighed several animals within our permitted Guide Use Area.  Imagine their surprise when they discovered that the mid-summer weight of some Billy Goats exceeded 390 pounds.  I know that we have harvested fall-weight goats that exceeded 420 pounds.
 
It is a local genetic anomaly that causes our Goats to grow to such immense proportions, and to harvest one of our unique “Gorilla Goats” in fall pelage is to harvest one of North America’s most prestigious trophies. The horns of our mature Billy Goats have unusually thick bases, and they will commonly reach a length of nine and three-eighths inches, and some Goat horns may occasionally reach a length of ten inches or longer.  We have taken several Billy Goats that qualified for the Boon and Crocket Record Book. Browse our mountain goat hunts below. Ask about our combo hunts where you can hunt a mountain goat and black or brown bear on the same trip!

Wolf:

Wolf can be added to any hunt with a $1,500 kill fee during the duration of a hunt for any higher value primary species.  If the hunter does not score on the primary species there will be no charge for a wolf kill.  The wolf hunt will not be extended beyond the time the primary species is taken.
