Alaska Grizzly Bear Hunt
This outfitter took the WORLD RECORD GRIZZLY BEAR just a few years ago.
If you’re looking to hunt a grizzly bear, this is THE HUNT for you. Bear populations are at all time high and hunter success for past five years has been 90% with average hide squaring over 8′. The majority qualifying for SCI and many B&C grizzlies as well.
- The fall hunt takes place in September and October. In the fall, hunters have the option of making it a combo hunt for grizzly, trophy moose, caribou, and or black bear.
- The spring hunt can produce HUGE bears that are just coming out of hibernation.
- Hunters can expect to rise early and glass from camp, eat a hot breakfast, and then hike to a “lookout” where they will glass. Once a good bear is spotted, a stalk is made to within 50 to 150 yards.
- Success rate over the years stands at about 90%. Our hunters on this hunt have consistently taken grizzlies with hides that will square 8′ with skulls between 23″ and 26″.
- Hunts take place in rolling hills (alpine) areas with elevations between 500′ and 2,000′. Although not difficult, hunters should be comfortable with hiking two to five miles a day in hilly country.
- Weather in Alaska is unpredictable. Be prepared and pack accordingly. You shouldn’t see any snow, but expect some rain & wind. Bugs are not usually an issue, but bug dope & headnets are provided when needed.
- All trips are 1×1 with one hunter per spike camp unless the hunt was booked as 2×1. License and tags are over-the-counter.

Unless you specifically booked your trip as a 2×1, it will be a 1×1 hunt with only one hunter per spike camp.
Unless otherwise requested or prearranged, the outfitter will arrange a flight between Anchorage, AK and the lodge a day prior to hunt and a day after hunt. All transportation to and from camps is provided by bush planes.
Food and Lodging
You will arrive at a very nice, remote base lodge, and the hunts will be out of spike camps. All spike camps are equipped with a satellite phone and you can request a trip back to the lodge at any point during your hunt. This will usually require a day of hunting due to Alaska law stating that hunters cannot hunt on the same day as flying.
Lunch/trail food are carried by guide, hot meals in evening can be expected, hunters requests for particular types of food can usually be complied with.
