Every aspect of our Alaska guiding service is specifically managed to provide a low volume of clients with the best opportunities to enjoy quality time, while visiting one of planet earths most beautiful and dynamic regions…Haines, Alaska, the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, and other exotic hunting regions of Southeast Alaska.
This unique ecosystem of mainland Southeast Alaska is immediately adjacent to the northern boundary of Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park, and it also shares an eastern boundary with British Columbia’s Tatshenshini/Alsek Provincial Park. Those two vast parks are themselves contiguous with Alaska’s Wrangle Saint Elias National Park, and the Yukon’s Kluane National Park.
Together, those adjacent parklands comprise 49 million acres of the largest protected ecosystem on earth…an area which is internationally recognized by the United Nations, Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, [UNESCO] as a world heritage site.
Al and Pam’s permitted northern Southeast Alaska hunt guiding area is within Game Management Sub-Units 1-C and 1-D, which is comprised of State of Alaska, BLM, and State Park managed lands that are embraced by the splendor of the world heritage site to the northwest, and by the strikingly juxtaposed emerald waters and lush forests of Alaska’s Inside Passage to the southeast.
The Alaska State Parks managed 49,000 acre Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve marks the transition point between the maritime climate of Southeast Alaska, and the interior regions of the World Heritage Site.
Al Gilliam was instrumental in creating the Eagle Preserve in 1983, and today master hunting guides Al & Pam continue to earn their livelihood guiding hunters, photographers and river rafters within the splendor of the greater Haines area, and the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve.
