The Alaska Outdoors Supersite™ has its roots in Delta Junction, Alaska, 100 miles (160 km) SE of Fairbanks. Our focus is to provide information about Alaska outdoors activities in order to promote sustainable, safe, and emotionally and economically valuable recreational uses of the state’s resources.
This website was started by David Johnson in 1996. David was a wildlife biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for 23 years until his retirement in mid-1995. During his career with the department he worked in Bristol Bay, Fairbanks, Delta Junction, Douglas (Juneau) and Anchorage. His last job in state service was as hunter services coordinator for the agency...a new program that he had the pleasure of starting up.
In January 2009 ownership of the Alaska Outdoors Supersite transferred to Michael Strahan, who had written for the site for almost as long as it had been online. Michael has been actively involved for many years on the Alaska outdoor scene as a big-game hunting guide, hunting seminar speaker, Alaska hunt consultant and published author. He remains passionate about the Alaska outdoors, and his real passion is helping people experience Alaska on their own terms.
The Alaska Outdoors Supersite™ owes its success to the community that has grown up around it. Though it came from small beginnings, this website has grown far beyond what we few could have done. We are deeply grateful for the partnership of the outdoors community.
The Alaska Outdoors Supersite is made possible by many people and businesses who advertise on our site. The heart of our business is the same as it always has been; to help people find the best information pertaining to the Alaska outdoors. In that regard, our Directory is a very important component of our site. If you are interested in finding an air charter, fishing charter, lodge, equipment supplier, guide or other goods or service provider, the Directory is where you should look first. But it doesn't end there. Our many sponsors advertise throughout the site, so you are likely to run into some of them on our Places Pages, our Forums, and elsewhere. If you are interested in advertising your business on our site, visit our Advertising section or contact Pam at 1 (907) 895-4919, Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm AST.

Each moderator is assigned to certain forums, and receives regular posts from those forums. Reported posts go to all moderators, so they can be dealt with in a timely manner. Our Mods are mostly volunteers, so try to be nice to them! Because our membership is so large, posts are made that our Mods do not always see immediately. Don't assume that they've seen an offending post and are allowing it to stand! If you discover a post that violates our Forum Rules, by all means report it, and our Mods will deal with it promptly.
Over 55,000 people have registered (early 2010) for the Alaska Outdoors Forums. There is a trove of Alaska outdoors information in the messages on these forums, thanks to the many, many Alaskans and visitors who share what they know. On the website Home Page there is a Google custom search box that allows you to search the entire website for information, including messages posted on the old and new forums.
Most of the content on Outdoors Directory is free for our members. Some have expressed a desire to give something back, so we have created two tiers of paid membership; Premium Member and Supporting Member. Each class of member is awarded additional perks in our forums area in exchange of a modest annual membership fee. CLICK HERE for more details.
Our advertisers provide the financial power to run this website. There are far too many advertisers to list here, but you can see them in our Directory and their banner ads and sponsorships in our Forum, and in their ads throughout the website. Thank you! The Alaska Outdoors Supersite would not be possible without you.
