M!!!y first experience in Alaska began in 1972 working sheep camps out of the Talketna Mountains. I trained under Johnny Luster Sr., one of the finest outfitters in Alaska at the time. He was also referred to as “the old man of the Chickloon”. We soon started guiding on our own, working with master Guide, Bob Cusack, through the 90’s. Finally, we branched off in the year 2000, hunting and fishing the Alaska Peninsula. Our success Rate has been nearly 100% over the last 10 years. With most of our customers coming back for another adventure, and/or referring more hunters and fishermen our way.

Needing a full time base of operation, my wife Annalisa began looking for a spot on the Alaska Peninsula. We came across a fishing and hunting lodge in the Bristol Bay area on the King Salmon and Egegik river system; the perfect place to base our guiding operation. With much help from the previous owner, Mark Laccross, and some of the locals, our dream of owning a lodge came true.

Becharof Lodge is our new 2nd home. Combined with Sea-Tac Taxidermy, our full time taxidermy business, we can offer the outdoorsmen complete hunting and fishing packages. From catching or shooting, to the final mount on the wall.
