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.

Bob Steed’s new World Record SCI grizzly with a 28 5/16” skull
Just moments after my guide and I agreed to move up the drainage, a moose materialized from the brush…. it looked like something from the ice age! Bigger than your SUV with antlers like two sheets of plywood. Thank you Outdoors International for an amazing hunt.
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.
