What hunters say about their Stoney River Lodge experience

We might be biased. Take it from our clients.

Great hunt! A first-class operation from start to finish!! Not only were we successful on caribou, we really enjoyed the “extra” experience of fly-out fishing. Hopefully, another trip is in our near future!

Interesting people, spectacular views and exceptional hunting in a vast, remote, untamed region of Alaska: this is the bucket list experience every hunter dreams of, and one that Curly and Betty delivered during my 2019 Dall Sheep hunt with Stoney River Lodge.

I was on the move from the moment I arrived in Anchorage, including multiple bush plane flights, hunting with an exceptional guide and capable packer, hiking rugged mountain ridges in the Alaska Range, fording streams and ultimately stalking and harvesting an impressive ram.

This is the stuff that lifetime memories are made of, and I feel very fortunate to have experienced it all with Stoney River Lodge.

Stoney River Lodge is a first-class operation, and I was lucky to have booked with them for the hunt of a lifetime. As a first-time sheep hunter, I had limited experience in the rugged, high-country terrain in which we were hunting. But my guide had many years of experience, and he was able to help locate a real trophy ram in the most pristine wilderness I had ever seen.

After many hours of stalking, he was able to get me into a position for the perfect clean shot. After my hunt, I was flown back to the lodge where Stoney River's staff catered to my every need to make my experience memorable. The service, food, and camaraderie with everyone was the best of any outfitter I had ever used in the past. I will definitely return for another big game, bucket-list pursuit. 

Thanks, Curly and Betty, for a great hunt!

We enjoyed every moment of our week with you. The attention you and your staff gave to every detail of our stay was amazing, and there was not a moment that we did not enjoy.

This was not a “once in a lifetime” trip for us - we spent much of our return flight talking about a return visit!
Again, thank you for your generosity, as well as your hospitality!

Thank you for the great Moose Hunt. The area and my guide were outstanding! I would highly recommend SRL for any outdoor adventure. I'm sure I'll be back.

I would love to go fishing with you again! I also, wanted to thank you and Betty for hosting me for the last hunt, and commend you for a first class operation. Thanks once again for your offer to extend my hunt. It was much appreciated.

I just wanted to thank you, Betty and your staff for such a great hunt and all the extra effort made to insure I was able to take a great Bull Moose, thank you!

I really enjoyed my hunt this fall with Bryce; he was a terrific guide with plenty of stories to share. Although we didn't harvest a caribou, we saw some the first few days but were holding out for something bigger.

We finished off the week by stalking and killing a beautiful grizzly bear that squared over 8 feet! We also saw some moose and black bear throughout the week. That was my first trip to Alaska but hopefully not my last. The whole experience was top notch. Thanks again!

Definitely the hunt of a lifetime. Couldn’t have been happier with my caribou and 71” moose. Had opportunities at every animal I was there for, and The Lodge staff and food were second to none. Will be back in the fall for a sheep. Thank You Very Much

Wow, what a great trip. You guys were just what the doc ordered. Lots of social distancing, physical therapy (fishing), and lots of disinfecting (bourbon).

You guys have an amazing group of people.

Joe put us on some huge shellfish. That was fantastic! Never thought I would catch one on a fly rod.

Cody was a wealth of knowledge on the fish and techniques on how to catch em. 7 different species. I loved his excitement and enthusiasm. I think he enjoyed me catching them as much as I did.

Could not have done it without Mitch and Gabe. It was a pleasure flying with them.

Where else can you get ALL THAT and King Crab with Baked Alaska!!!

I can’t wait to do it again!
