Alaska Vessel Based Coastal Black Bear Hunts


These coastal black bear hunts are based from a live-in, luxury yacht


These Alaska vessel based, coastal black bear hunts are conducted in Prince William Sound in Alaska Unit 6 where the rugged Chugach Mountains meet the saltwater.

You’ll be hunting big salmon-fed bears just coming out of hibernation. These black bears have the best hair quality on the planet. These coastal black bear hunts take place in an area that has one of the highest bear populations in Alaska and they typically square between 6-7 feet, and a few record book black bears are taken every year. Large boars with perfect hides are the norm. A bonus on this trip is the fishing, waterfowl hunting and blacktail deer hunting. This outfitter only takes three groups per year on this hunt. These hunts will happen in the spring when the weather is nicest. This is a quality, fun hunt for a trophy bear. Get more information »
