  • 2. INTERIOR MOUNTAIN GRIZZLY BEAR. Pioneer Outfitters has one of the only areas in Alaska a Grizzly may be taken every year instead of every four years...crossing more than tracks, that is the trick! This 2009 Season, Pioneer Outfitters joined hands with Hunt of a Lifetime to offer all of our experience and opportunities to help Hunt of a Lifetime make dreams come true. As hard as the economy has been these last few years, with most people tightening up on money and trying to wait the hard times out, organizations such as Hunt of a Lifetime need people like Alaskan Master Guide Terry Overly and companies like Pioneer Outfitters to open their hearts and the purse strings to make sure the “wait” doesn’t negate the fact that young people like Jesse Pizana and Bennett Page have a life to live now.

  • 4. KATHY HUTSON It’s remote. In can be unbelievably difficult. It is expensive. These are not the reasons that we hunt Sheep. The beauty of Sheep country is unsurpassed. The feelings brought from being high on that mountain peak are spectacular. The inner satisfaction, the knowledge and triumph, this is why we hunt Sheep. It can beat you up and not beat you. It can break your heart and heal it, all at the same time. The pursuit of the magnificent Dall Sheep, the holy grail of this hunter’s quest. Kathy Hutson, has hunted Dall Sheep with us at Pioneer Outfitters twice now and has yet to harvest her sought after trophy. The determination, the dedication to her goal is an inspiration. Pioneer Outfitters has been privileged over the years , meeting and getting to know some really special people, Kathy is one of those people. All hunters know, as do professional guides do, luck (like the weather) isn’t something anyone can control, all we can do is keep going and be ready. Kathy is due for a little luck to mix with her drive and strength and Pioneer Outfitters is looking forward to August 2010 so that we can share in that triumph that is surely to come. 4
