Trophy Brown Bear Hunts on the Alaska Peninsula
The Alaska peninsula has the largest brown bear populations in Alaska. This brown bear hunting outfitter takes only eight brown bear hunters per year, keeping the bear population strong and the trophy quality high. We hunted this hunt, personally, in the spring and our client harvested a bear over 10 ft. in 2012 (one of the worst springs in Alaskan history) We can’t say enough good things about this outfitter.
Location is key while brown bear hunting, and five strategically located camps keeps hunting pressure light. The 94% success rate on trophy brown bears speaks for itself. Get more information
