This is a once in a lifetime drawing hunt that takes place on the East side of the Copper River on private land inside the Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Preserve. Snowmobiles are used to access the area during February and March when the Bison come down from the mountains to feed along windblown bluffs near the river.

100 percent success rate for the past three years!

This is not your typical ranch style American Bison hunt. The Copper River Herd is a wild,  free range herd used to living in very rugged terrain. This can be a tough but rewarding hunt. I strongly encourage anyone interested in this hunt to begin putting in now as it usually takes several years to draw a tag. Non residents can only draw one bison tag per lifetime.

Accommodations consist of a rustic bunkhouse and hearty home cooked meals.

Applications are available from the Alaska Dept of Fish and Game online at  Hunt # DI454.

Application period is November 1st- December 15th.

All applicants must have a valid Alaska hunting license.
