I have hunted with Copper River Outfitters for 4 years for a total of 40 days. Everyday of each hunt was great. I have hunted with other outfitters in both Canada and the United States and Jim Lancaster was by far the best. His entire staff is well educated in their fields. They put you on the game and give you the best advice to be successful. The lodging is very comfortable and the food is hot, tasty and on time —like being at home. I would book with them for the rest of my hunting life. – Walt Sisler


I have 2 moose hunts under my belt, both with Copper River Outfitters. From the moment I met Jim Lancaster I knew I had made the right choice! Copper River Outfitters is professionally run, their guides are top-notch, and they are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that your hunt is a success! Our camp cook Gail was amazing, producing excellent meals to see us off in the morning and welcome us home at night. ‘Home’ says it all. From the moment you arrive you feel like part of the family, and the expertise and companionship provided builds relationships for a lifetime. Oh yes, and then there’s the moose! I almost forgot! 2 for 2, thanks to my knowledgeable guides Gary and Don! We will be back! I highly recommend Copper River Outfitters! Larry Worley
