This area has a good population of big Bears, & we have enjoyed a 100% success rate on our spring hunts conducted here. Depending on the island being hunted, the hunt is either vessel based or conducted out of a remote cabin. I think a patient hunter should be able to collect at least a 9′ bear during his/her hunt, with good odds for a larger bear too. There is nothing like hunting the largest predator in the world to the avid big game hunter!”

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...."
