Most hunters fly to Anchorage, Alaska and then catch a flight to Valdez where the outfitter will meet you for your hunt.
Hunt from very nice live-aboard vessels, or comfortable fly-in beach camp. Sometimes, depending on the hunter and/or conditions, a spike camp is used. A few springs ago there was too much snow during the spring season, and the bears were further inland. That is a rare case however.
Custom gear list for this hunt is coming soon…
“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!”
