Review Information

Hunter: Mark Weisenbeck



Would Recommend: No

Overall Impression: poor

Ketchum air service flew us into an area were there were already 4 other camps within about 1 mile of ours. We saw 5 caribou in 7 days of hunting. Only 2 were bulls and there were spotted well over 2 miles away and moving. In another words impossible to catch up to. We ended up shooting 1 cow for meat. Ketchums put no effort into scouting the area just dropped us were other camps were. I agree with others on this site that flight services out of Anchorage just plain cannot reach the mulchatna herd. I would never recommend anyone use any of the anchorage flight services, especially ketchum as they are just dropping you off for the money and care less if you see game or not. I see much more game when I hunt on my own. I have been hunting in alaska for 7 years and this was by far the worst hunt I have ever had as far as spotting game. For a flight service like Ketchum to drop you off where other camps are is just plain rude to the established camps and incoming hunters.
