EPIC Announcement


It’s The End of an Era, The Start of a New Don.

We’ve sold the EPIC Angling & Adventure business, including both camps, to longtime guide Don Mutert. Congratulations, Don!

Don has worked with us since 2018, so he knows the camps, fishing, and the outdoors – you’re certainly in good hands.

Don has formed a new LLC business entity, Rugged Creek Outfitters, but will continue doing business as EPIC Angling & Adventure. That is, you’ll still write your checks to and fish with EPIC Angling & Adventure. The names of the camps, Alaska Wilderness SAFARI and Alaska Wilderness OUTPOST, will remain unchanged.

Most longtime customers knew this day was on the horizon for me – I’ve alluded to it for a few years. Will I have some small regrets selling the business? Of course. Am I overly grateful for all the adventures and incredible people I’ve met along the way? Absolutely! But it’s time for me and my wife, Carrie, who has graciously supported my Alaska Peninsula adventures for 20+ years, to close this chapter on our lives. What’s next for me is still TBD. But she’s still flying helicopters seasonally in Juneau, so we’re not done with Alaska just yet!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We are humbly grateful for 20+ years of serving you, guiding you, and getting to know you and your families in remote Alaska!

Rus & Carrie
