Our Staff

  • Don Mutert

    Don Mutert


    After working with EPIC A&A since 2018, Don took over the entire business in 2023! He grew up in IL but moved to Bozeman, MT in 2015 to pursue a degree in Film and Photography. Most likely it was because he has a passion for the outdoors, fly fishing and bow hunting! Being a fly fishing guide was always in his blood – his uncle guided for 10+ years on the Alaska Peninsula & the remote Russian Kamchatka Peninsula. Don is a Wilderness First Responder and U.S. Coast Guard licensed.

  • Shannon Mutert

    Customer Support

    Don’s sister, Shannon, is also originally from IL, but moved to WI to attend UWP, graduating with a Bachelor of Business Admin/Marketing in 2020. Still living in southwest WI, she gets to fly fish the small, clear streams of the Driftless area where the Brown and Brook trout are plentiful!

  • Paul Marr (“Frog”)

    Guide, 2024

    Paul grew up in Memphis, TN but moved to Denver, CO to attend college… and climb, fish and camp amongst the Rockies. Paul currently lives in Portland. He was originally inspired by the mountains after his older cousin spent time climbing in South America. But the mountains kept calling after his sister visited Norway. Eventually he embarked on his own trips through NOLS to the Pacific NW, the Yukon, and even spending 6 months in Patagonia. Paul has been with us since 2022 when he started as the camp helper / apprentice guide. 

  • Harding Brown

    GUIDE, 2024

    Spending most of his youth on a small farm in Ohio, Harding was itching to see what the rest of the world had to offer. In the summer of 2021, he cut his teeth as a bear-viewing guide working for a lodge in Iliamna, Alaska. Falling in love with the untamed wilderness, he’s been returning to the far north equipped with a camera & fly rod every year since. During the off-season, you’ll find him starting colts for a variety of ranches and horse trainers out west. Harding joined our team guiding in 2023 at Safari camp. This year he will be at both OUTPOST & SAFARI camp! Harding recently completed his Wilderness First Aid certification and is U.S Coast Guard licensed.

  • Boyd Boylan

    Camp helper, Apprentice Guide 2024

    Growing up in Montana, Boyd was grounded in the rewarding qualities of being an outdoorsman, thanks to his father who had worked as a hunting and fishing guide throughout the West. While working on ranches in Colorado and Wyoming with his family, Boyd would find that the best way to spend spare time was taking expeditions into the wilderness to chase down big trout or hunt elk. In between work, he spends his time at UW studying engineering.

Employment Opportunities

If you think you have what it takes to work in a rugged, remote and unforgiving environment that will challenge you both physically and mentally, please contact us about potential staff openings.

Everybody thinks they want to work in Alaska, but the work is NOT for everybody. Our work is perpetual and strenuous and is anything but your “great Alaskan vacation.” We need professional, hard working, serious, team oriented (no ego-maniacs), non-alcoholic and drug free people with a passion for fishing, the outdoors and hospitality.
