Episode 7: Guiding to Live the Dream

In this episode, my guest is Mark Rowenhorst. Mark hasn’t lived here as long as many, but had the dream of moving to Alaska, and has used guiding to both facilitate that dream, and accelerate his learning curve. Because of that, he has experience beyond his years here.

We talk about how he came up here and what it was like starting out as a packer and moving on to being a licensed assistant guide, and how that is a very realistic option for folks who have always dreamed of living and hunting in Alaska. We also discuss some of the logistics of hunting Alaska, and touch on some of the things people forget to plan for. You’ll get to hear about some of Mark’s very first guiding experiences, and his first personal sheep and caribou hunt.
