  • These Alaska trophy black bear hunts are conducted in Prince William Sound in Alaska Unit 6 where the rugged Chugach Mountains meet the saltwater. You’ll be hunting big salmon-fed bears just coming out of hibernation in an area that has one of the highest bear populations in Alaska and they typically square between 6-7 feet. These black bears have the best hair quality on the planet, and a few record book black bears are taken every year. Large boars with perfect hides are the norm. These big salmon-fed Bears are just coming out of hibernation & have some of the best hide quality anywhere on the planet. Cruising the coastal shorelines and glassing the tidal flats produce plenty of stalking opportunities. This area has one of the highest Bear populations in the state.

    A bonus on this trip is the fishing, waterfowl hunting and blacktail deer hunting. This outfitter only takes three groups per year on this hunt, and they are in the spring when the weather is nicest. This is a quality, fun hunt for a trophy-sized bear.

    This is how an Alaska coastal black bear hunting trip should be! Cruising the coastal shorelines in a boar and glassing the tidal flats produce plenty of spot and stalk opportunities.

    The hunting is almost what you would consider…. luxury.

    Wake up before light and glass the surrounding bay where the boat is anchored, eat breakfast, pack sack lunch, and get out on the skiffs to beach comb for bears. Come back for hot lunch and move boat if necessary, or repeat.

    Big boat moves will be done mid day. Bears are usually spotted along the coast from skiffs out in the bays. Once a good bear is spotted, you and your guide will stalk into range.

    Hunt in Style from the Outfitters’ Yacht:

    Transportation and accommodations for these coastal black bear hunts are based out of the outfitters’ boat. Skiffs are 20’ and the boat is 53 x 17. Sleeping arrangements are bunk style, and there is a shower on board.

    The meals are just basic home cooking, but if you tell the Outfitter prior to your hunt what you prefer, he will get what you request within reason. Expect to eat lots and lots of fresh seafood such as Halibut, Rockfish, and Shrimp that you catch during your trip.

      It doesn’t get much more fun than cruising the beautiful coastal shorelines of Prince William Sound in a boat and glassing tidal flats for big bears. You can expect lots of spot and stalk opportunities, and this is a great bowhunt.

      This Alaska black bear hunt is one of our most popular hunts, for good reason. You will hunt big 6 to 7 foot coastal bears from a live-aboard luxury yacht on Prince William Sound. The success rate is 95-100%, with record book bears taken every year. A bonus on this trip is the fishing, waterfowl hunting and blacktail deer hunting. This outfitter only takes three groups per year on this hunt.

      We hunted coastal black bear in Alaska in September 2010 from a vessel. We each shot our bear and had a wonderful time on this incredible vessel-based Alaska black bear hunt. Our hunting guide did a great job. The scenery was worth the price of admission and it was great to visit such a remote area of the Prince William Sound!

      As I am sitting there in the grass surrounded by dead salmon, the idea of my five day trip ending on day one finds me a bit sad… so when the hunter missed his chance to shoot and we watched the bear disappear into the brush up the creek I was doing a happy dance, (on the inside of course).

      Being from Germany, the U.S. holds promise of wide open spaces and a bit of a mystery. After living here for over 20 years I have gotten used to it, but Alaska still amazes me. Is it the wide open spaces, low number of people or wildlife? I have had the opportunity to make several trips to Alaska but I have to say the most memorable was this one.

      I have to say up front that this hunt this spring was one of the most awesome (I rarely use the term awesome) trips I have ever been on. The Outfitter did a great job of making the most of our entire trip. The number of bears that we saw was very comforting in that there was never any worry about our possibilities of success. The amount of other wildlife that we observed also satisfied my hopes and expectations I had prior to going.

      Hunting free roaming black bears on the coast in Alaska on a vessel based hunt is a hunt I would recommend to anyone. It makes me want to save up for a brown bear hunt.
