“A National Geographic Experience – Awe-Inspiring Beauty! My wife and I had an incredible adventure with you and your crew, who were all consummate professionals. We traveled to Southeast Alaska to hunt mountain goat the first hunt week of the 2016 season but had no idea that we would have a National Geographic experience. I do not have the words to adequately describe the beauty we were immersed in. After glassing many billies, nannies and kids the first day, I was confident I could be successful on this hunt. On day two after a 350-yard shot, I was able to wrap my arms around a handsome long haired billy that we will proudly display in our home and re-tell our adventure for years to come.”
“Any hunter seeking to hunt Black Bear in Sitka, Alaska would do well to go with Parker Guide Service. Using the boat Alaskan Harvest, which is well found, well-appointed and well provisioned, Bruce Parker is able to get his clients to superior hunting grounds in very little time. The crew aboard the Alaskan Harvest is well aware of the needs of the hunting group. Meals are well prepared, easily as good as any 5-star restaurant, and plentiful. Guides spare no effort getting hunters onto high-quality trophy bears, and their field care of the hides is outstanding. The single most impressive aspect of Bruce Parker and his crew are their meticulous attention to detail. That alone makes the whole experience enjoyable for everyone.”
“The best black and brown bear hunting ever- hands down! Bruce is the best guide I have ever been with. Out of 20+ big game hunts around the world this is the #1 outfitter. His accommodations are first class”
Thanks for showing us beautiful Alaska! We had an awesome trip and owe it all to you and your crew.”
“I have hunted globally for 40 years and my 2016 April combination brown and black bear hunt with Bruce and his team has been the very best. Everything was perfect and I look forward to returning to Alaska to hunt again with Parker Guide Service.”
“Our trip with Bruce and his crew delivered the family holiday I sought with memories and wonderful experiences shared and enjoyed at the time producing a bond for life for the adult children, cousins, and parents. Bruce, the crew and the Alaskan Harvest were so accommodating and keen to deliver special moments that it is hard to imagine ways in which it could have been improved. The animals, scenery, and atmosphere all combined to give us a truly memorable holiday we will reminisce about for the rest of our lives. Of particular note were the awesome Orcas, kayaking among the icebergs and up to the face of glaciers, and taking alternating dips between the hot pools and the cold river- oh and how could I miss mentioning the bears! Our photos are fabulous and will be reminders at many family gatherings of the family holiday that has set the bar very high indeed and will be difficult to reach again.”
“One of the best North American hunts I have ever been on! Thank you so much for the hospitality and the great adventure you took us on! We had a great time and will definitely be looking forward to coming back! One of the best North American hunts I’ve ever been on!
“I have been blessed to have participated in many big game hunts around the world. My 2014 brown bear hunt with Bruce Parker was excellent in every regard. The booking, arrangement, and questions asked, were all done in a professional manner and superior to most of my previous experiences. The accommodations were five-star and exceeded my expectations. The food and attitude of cooks, guides, etc. was outstanding. Both my friend and I harvested huge brown bears with Bruce Parker being our personal guide. I have never written a recommendation for a hunting experience, but I would recommend Bruce Parker and Parker Guide Service to anybody that wants superior service, accommodations, and results.”
“This was a Great Adventure trip of a lifetime, scenery, accommodations, you and your crew, and incredible animals in an area so beautiful it’s impossible to describe! People should come here to experience this for themselves.”
“This was an incredible experience to be with you and your team, and most importantly with my son Weston as he harvested his Big Brown Bear on my 44th Birthday. As well as my hunting partner Brian, and his non-hunting brother Chris with Brian getting his trophy Brown Bear, a dream come true for him! AWESOME!!! A special thanks to you all, what a memorable trip and thankful to have been in this Beautiful place made by our Creator!”
“I’ve been on a lot of hunts over the years, on this my 71st year I can truthfully say I’ve never ever had a better trip!”
“I just received my Mountain Goat and wanted to send you a couple of photos. I think the mount turned out fantastic. Thank you again for the hunt of a lifetime.”
“Thank you guys for all of the hospitality. These memories will last a lifetime.”
“You guys have been great hosts and guides. Thank you for the wisdom, good eyes, and all the great stories. My stomach thanks you endlessly. I haven’t eaten that many good, consecutive meals probably ever. Hopefully I’ll see you all again in the future. Best Luck.”
“I can’t thank you enough for one of the most memorable trips of my life! My sons and I had a great time, Your efforts were far beyond anything I could have hoped. The hunts were great and the food was awesome. We look forward to coming again!”
Bruce and Ann-Marie,
Thanks for a wonderful hunting trip. Accommodations, food, staff, hunting, all excellent! Thanks for a wonderful experience and a nice bear.”
