I grew up hunting whitetails in Northern Minnesota dreaming about big bucks and the thrill of watching whitetails during the rut. I have lived in Alaska for awhile and when I had the opportunity to purchase this hunt through the SCI Alaska chapter I really didn't know what to expect. Here's what I can say about Briarwood, it is a living, breathing, whitetail dream world. That may sound excessive, but what you experience on this property is nothing short of amazing. The attention to detail from the meticulously maintianed property to your treatment in the lodge and dining table are impressive to say the least. Chris, Mike and Brennan couldn't be better hosts and I truly enjoyed my time with them. So in Mike's words, this place is "PRIMO!!"
I would recommend the quality of the staff, the quality of the game here, the friendliness of the atmosphere and true caring of all the owners, guides, and staff members. I had a terrific hunt. The owners, guides, and staff made me feel at home. They all legitimately care about the quality of my aunt and my stay and asked me on several occasions what they could do to make this day more enjoyable. Definitely five star.
Briarwood Sporting Club is "THE" place to go for an incredible hunting and fishing experience of a lifetime. The owners, guides, chef and staff are top shelf!! I would highly recommend this club for families and sportsmen alike!!
All around amazing experience. Chris and Kristy do a great job, they treat you like family. They have first class staff and food. The deer are second to none. I shot the buck of a lifetime, double drop tine! I could not be more pleased and will be back!
I cannot say enough great things about Briarwood!!! My husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday and had the most amazing time! The staff, hospitality, attention to detail and experience are all 5+ stars! Our guide, Jeff, is the best! We can’t wait to come back!
