The Brooks Range in Alaska is a seemingly endless expanse of tundra where herds of over a half-million caribou practice their annual migration and the grizzly bears thrive.”
Lodging and Food
The main camp has power and hot running water, but hunts are usually from spike camps so every hunter has the best chance of success. Spike camps consist of 4-6 man tents with cots and sleeping pads. Meals are either freeze dried or home cooked meals depending on the circumstances.

It was a good hunt, but the guide should carry a gun for protection. Lots of bears. I couldn't understand that....

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.
