Every year we welcome moose, caribou, bison, bear and dall sheep hunters. Our guests use McGrath as a transportation hub, and the Roadhouse as a base camp. Be sure to follow hunting regulations.
Local guides at Epic Alaska in Takotna and Runkles in Nikolai offer the best hunting and trapping adventures in the area. That said most of our hunters rely on Willow Air and Litzen Guide Service outfitters for their experience of the area and their high capacity.
Did you know? McGrath welcomes around 4% of out-of-state hunters coming to Alaska. If you donate some of your meat to locals, not every family needs to hunt for subsistence and the population of wild animals is preserved!
Free services to make your travel easier:

We receive and store your boxes at no cost before and during your hunt. However as we don’t have mail/freight distribution in McGrath, we take a fee of $20 per item to pickup your gear in town when shipping with USPS, FedEx or a local freight carrier. For safety reasons we do not accept any item over 50 pounds.
Hang your meat in the walk-in fridge of our D.I.Y. Meat House. The Roadhouse provides the infrastructure but is not responsible for your meat at any time of the process. Please be responsible to avoid both food waste and legal trouble! Contact us for details on how to transport your meat to your home state and we will assist.
