Here’s a rundown of the 2014 Alaska Hunting Season from our Alaska outfitter, as well as what’s new for next hunting season.
Spring Brown Bear Hunts
Last year we had a Spring bear hunt on the Alaska peninsula, and the weather was polar opposite from our last spring hunt two years ago. That year we had the coldest spring season with more snow than ever before, but this year it was hot, and I mean HOT! We had a full moon at night, and 80 degrees during the day. We had seven hunters and took six bears. The hunter that did not get a bear left for business 4 days into the hunt. Shortly after he left the weather changed a little and the bears started moving. We averaged 9’3″ with our biggest bear squaring 9’7′ with a 27 9/16″ skull. It will rank in the Top Ten for muzzleloader brown bear. Get More Information »
*In April we also put the finishing touches on our new spring camp where will will ow be offering spring snow machine hunts during April, although we did not take any hunters this spring we saw lots of bears with a large number of mature boars, we will be taking four hunters in this location next April.
Fall Caribou, Arctic Grizzly, Brown Bear, Wolf, and Black Bear Hunts
Grizzly bear season was great, with the first two hunters each bagging a nice bear the first day of their hunt. We had a total of six one day bear hunts. We had ten grizzly hunters and all hunters took bears. The bears averaged 7’3″ and skulls averaging 23″. Our big grizzly of the season squared 8’1″ and had a 25 3/16″ skull. We also were lucky enough to take two wolves. There were plenty of bear bear sightings in our Brooks Range Camp and we feel that next season will be yet another banner year for grizzly bears and caribou.

We left the Brooks Range one day before an Arctic blast hit and traveled to our Western Alaska Camp where four hunters took three Brown Bears, and one Black Bear. The brown bears averaged 8’2″. We took a lot of time scouting this new area and the potential for moose and bear hunting is huge. We plan to take two combo hunters in this new area next season. Get More Information »
New for next season:
We have obtained exclusive rights for 190,000 acres along the Pacific side of the Alaska Peninsula for brown bear hunting. We just returned from a week of scouting, and we’re very happy with what we saw. The number of bears fishing on the Salmon streams was very impressive with well over a 100 bears spotted in a just a few days.
We will be offering four April Bear hunts in Western Alaska these will be ten day hunts, we will also be offing two moose/brown bear combos from this camp during September along with four brown bear hunters.
We will also be offing unguided Sitka blacktail deer hunting from our cabin on Kodiak Island. After two harsh winters, the last two winters have been very mild and the deer population is doing well with lots of good bucks. Get More Information »
