My name is Mike “Buck” Bowden. I’m the owner of Hidden Alaska Guides and Outfitters, and I’d like to welcome you to our website.
I started guiding in 1974, and worked my way up through the ranks to the status of Master Guide, where I hold license #M-80.
Along the way I’ve been a trapper, a homesteader, a horse packer, and a river rafter. I am a Commercial Instrument Multi-Engine pilot, and in my former career as an Alaska Fish and Wildlife Officer, I even became a certified commercial diver. I own a lodge and several cabins and outbuildings, which I built with logs I felled on a remote parcel of land deep in the Western Alaska Range. I spend a good deal of the summer months out at the lodge, making improvements and generally keeping the place in good shape for our many guests.
The lodge offers excellent bear hunting, while remote tent camps and float hunts offer great opportunities for moose, bear, sheep and caribou.
