There are many things about hunting in Alaska that are a bit different than most places. The manner in which we arrive at our destinations is a bit different from a lot of other hunting locations. It is common to use float planes, jet boats, air boats, atvs and utvs, tracked vehicles and many different types of off road vehicles.
My wife and I chose to build our own off road rigs commonly known as moose buggies, tundra buggies or swamp buggies. These buggies allow us to access hunting areas that could not be hunted by a lot of other methods. It takes us 2 days of travel, if we don't have any problems, to get to where our hunting camp is located. We stay out for 3 weeks or more at a time and we have to be self sufficient while we are out. We have encountered temperatures as cold as 0*, snow and mechanical problems. For the most part we practice spot and stalk hunting but we do a fair amount of calling later in the season as the rut progresses. The buggies allow us to retrieve animals once they are down and they also allow us to skin and gut a moose without having to do it on the ground.
We can also use them to skin a bear while it is hanging.
Here are a couple of pics of the buggies in action.
