Looking for the hunt of a lifetime? Then Alaska's Unit 17 Hunting Area is definitely for you! Contact now and make sure that you get the hunt you’ve always wanted.

Gabe Davis and his family own and manage Davis Outfitters in Dillingham, Alaska. Gabe has spent over two decades in western Alaska, hunting, trapping, and guiding. He understands the lay of the terrain better than anybody as a year-round pilot and guide. As a dedicated hunter and trapper, he spends a lot of time in the field to figure out where and when the best hunting grounds are.

We provide hunts in the spring and fall in some of Alaska's most remote and beautiful places, including the Alaska Peninsula and Western Alaska. Your hunt will be an unforgettable experience because of the accommodations, food, camp equipment, and low hunter-to-guide ratio.
