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.
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.
We hunted this hunt 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. Get ready to do A LOT of glassing, but when you finally spot a good bear, and you will, it is super exciting!” -Cory Glauner
Cory Glauner and his client, Bruce Templeton on a spring Peninsula brown bear hunt
Brown bear hunting on the Alaska Peninsula switches from a Spring to a Fall hunt every other year. Even numbered years are spring brown bear hunts and take place May 10-25. Odd number years are the fall brown bear hunts which take place October 1-20.
The Spring hunts are very good. The Fall hunts are OFF THE HOOK!” -Cory Glauner
You will hunt from either a tent camp or a remote hunting shack on foot spot-and-stalk style.

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

Russ my miracle worker put together the ultimate Grizzly hunt for me. The guide I had, Rick took it from there, and helped me fulfill a life long dream. Russ and Rick tag teamed this so perfect, I couldn’t think of a better hunt ever!

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.
