Ptarmigan Hunting

Your ptarmigan hunt at Alpine Creek Lodge is best anytime in the open season period.  Ptarmigan season is from Aug 10-March 31. We have a huge number of Willow Ptarmigan, with good numbers of the rarer White Tailed Ptarmigan and Rock Ptarmigan.  

Fall hunts are done with ATV’s and walking.  When the snow gets too deep, you hunt them with snow machines (snowmobiles) to get to their main habitat areas.  You’re welcome to bring your bird dog, as dogs are always welcome at Alpine Creek Lodge.

You’ll be staying in the most beautiful setting Alaska has to offer, in a true wilderness that few have experienced.  The scenery alone will last a lifetime in your memory!

We offer 3 day hunts, with as many additional days as you would like.  For Ptarmigan hunting from Aug 10-Oct 15 on ATV's, the rate is $750.00 per person per day for hunting days and $300.00 a day for travel days.  For Ptarmigan hunting from Oct 16-March 31 on snowmachines, the rate is $850.00 per person per day for hunting days and $350.00 for travel days.  Our rates includes pick up and drop off in Anchorage, all your meals, plus your stay in our remote lodge, snow machine or ATV usage.  This does not include your small game hunting license, rifle or shotgun.

We offer fully guided trapping tours in the winter at Alpine Creek Lodge! These hunts also include predator calling! We offer three distinct packages for these hunts.

The Professional:

This is running a serious line and our goal (and yours) is to harvest a large amount of fur.  On this trip, you take home everything we harvest! With good success, you could pay for your trip!

This package is for folks that are looking for that once in a lifetime animal, or one of every animal that we can harvest while you are here. You will only be allowed to take one animal of each species home with you, and we will do whatever we can to insure you get one of each. Wolf, Wolverine, Lynx, Fox, Marten, Ermine, Otter, Beaver, Muskrat, etc.
