Bow & Arrow setup for Red Stags


You can use your Elk hunting set up.

Fast enough for long distance range but with good energy.
Arrow & broad-head total minimum weight: 500 grs

Recommended broad-heads: fixed blades if possible ( tested: Thunderheads, Slick tricks,
G5 Montec, Muzzy, Stinger).

Mechanical can perfrom well but some narrow angle shots may end on a very low penetration. Also you may be facing some brush or thin branches along trayectory that can deploy a mechanical meanwhile with a fixed it's a good hit. (tested: Rage, NAP spitfire with good output).

Pins: 30, 40, 50, 60 yds.
Bow weight: +60 lbs




Bow & Arrow setup for Water Buffalo hunt



Arrow & broad-head total minimum weight: 800 grs

Recommended extreme weight forward center (FOC)

Recommended broad-heads: Massai or Samurai single bevel.


You can contact Todd Smith from GrizzlyStick todd@alaskabowhunting.com who is an expert in heavy armor setups (boradheads & arrows)

Pins: 20, 30, 40, 50 yds

Minimum Bow weight: 60 lbs




Bow & Arrow setup for a grand slam bucket list


The ideal setup would be the one considering the massive water buffalo and the rest of the species. Thinking in the Buffalo closer shots demaning high energy but also fast and flat trayectory for mid and smaller species, a good setup can be achieved by bringing a single 60-70 pounds bow with 2 sights and 2 arrows setups. First set of 6 heavy arrows+broadheads setup with a sight for buffalo distances, and a second set of lighter arrows+broads with the second sight setup for longer shots over the other species.




Suggested tips/gratuities


Why we tip? Tipping the team who conduct your hunt is a customary act in our industry, yet still remains discretionary as a reflection of your appreciation of the efforts of the team. For the most part, these men and women do not conform to typical 5-7 weekdays, but rather early mornings and late evenings on any given day of the week to ensure the best possible service in order to make sure your hunt is a success. Although these teams are employed either on a full time basis or on a seasonal basis, many of them rely on gratuities to supplement their income to support their families back home. When and how do we tip? This is always the tricky part as the procedure will inevitably vary between camps and outfits. Communicating with your outfitter before arrival or during the hunt is always helpful in preparing your tips accordingly. Traditionally gratuities are given at the end of the safari before departing home. In most cases, your outfitter or guide in charge will arrange for the staff to bid you farewell where you can hand the tips to the members individually. In some cases, many of the members may not be present upon your departure due to their duties in the field, so handing their tips in closed envelopes to the responsible person in charge will ensure the absentees get theirs too.
Typical team on our Hunts: - Lodge Manager & Professional Hunter - Guides - Skinner/s - Cheff/Cook - Cook assistant - Maids & Cleaners How much do we tip? Gratuity amounts are again discretionary, a reflection of your appreciation. Your outfitter will gladly assist in providing recommendations and a list of staff members involved in your safari, so don't be shy to ask. On the other hand you should be encouraged to you to use your own discretion considering a % of the total price of the hunt. A rule of thumb indicator recommendation by outfitters would be to give a 10% inbetween your Lodge manager, Guide, Cheff & Maids. Source: www.bookyourhunt.com
