Samuel T. Fejes, Jr. was born and raised in Alaska, and learned at an early age his passion for Alaska’s great outdoors. Trapping, fishing, hunting at an early age just ignited his desire to excel to higher levels in this field at an older age.
Receiving his pilot’s license at an early age, Sam has flown Alaska from the Arctic Circle to Ketchikan and throughout Alaska, where he has accumulated over 20,000 hours with nearly 12,000 hours in a Super Cub alone. Currently he holds a Commercial and Instrument Pilot’s license, and is rated for single engine land and sea.
Sam received his assistant guide license in the mid 70s and after acquiring additional experience guiding on the Alaska Peninsula and South central Alaska, Sam received his registered guide license in 1981 and his master guide license in 1995.
Since the beginning of his guiding career, Sam has received numerous awards, including the 1994 Safari Club International “Outstanding Professional Hunter Award”. 2-time Alaska Professional Hunter Association and Federation of North American Wild Sheep “Outstanding Outfitter Award”, and over 60 APHA/SCI Awards for outstanding trophies taken each year.
Because Sam conducts many of his hunts and tours on water, he has been licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and has received his Master Coast Guide License 100 ton.
Safety has always been a top priority in Sam’s operation and has always stressed Emergency medical preparation to his guides and staff. This is why he has taken Wilderness EMT courses, ETT courses, First Aid courses, CPR courses and other Alaska Survival courses.
Sam has traveled many parts of the world, met people from all walks of like and has hunted on 4 continents. This has given him the knowledge to ensure your safari to be safe enjoyable, and most of all, memorable.
