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 »

This hunting video will give you a little taste of these Alaska Coastal Black Bear Hunts.
What to expect on these coastal black bear hunts:
This Alaska outfitter’s black bear hunts are a consistent producer of trophy black bears squaring 6-7′, with awesome coats.
Wake up before light and glass the surrounding bay where the boat is anchored, eat breakfast, pack sack lunch, and get out on the skiffs to beach comb for bears. Come back for hot lunch and move boat if necessary, or repeat. Big boat moves will be done mid day. Bears are usually spotted from skiffs out in the bays. Once a good bear is spotted, you and your guide will stalk into range.
Success rates on these black bear hunts have been 95-100% every year.
Trophy quality is very good. Big 6-7 foot bears with beautiful, perfect coats are the norm.
This is how an Alaska black bear hunting trip should be! Cruising the coastal shorelines in a boar and glassing the tidal flats produce plenty of spot and stalk opportunities.”

An incredible hunt. Cruise the coastal shorelines and glass the tidal flats for bears. This is an awesome bowhunting opportunity as well.” -Marc Warnke

I've been on a lot of hunts over the past years, and can honestly say this one of my best trips to date! With animals in every direction, the hardest decision was figuring out which Goat we were going after.
Brown Bear HuntingAlaska brown bear hunting can be very dangerous. This hunt gets super dicey when the brown bear charges the hunter and his guide. "At 20-25 yards I could finally see the charging brown bear clearly, mouth open, teeth exposed,…. the Outfitter yelled, “Shooooootttt” and I shouldered my 7mag and pulled the trigger, “Crack” went the centerfire, I loaded again and pulled the trigger again, the 7 mag barked again and his forward progress was slowed quite a bit...."
