- We have three 7-day hunts available each spring (April – May) and two 7-day hunts in the fall (August).

- Each hunt will be a max of 7 days, the first day of hunting starts the day we go to camp (hunting along the way) and ends on the 7th day on our way back to Nome.
- A typical day hunting for Grizzly Bear consists of using snow machines to look for dens and glassing high slopes and valleys.
- Success rates are high.
Recommended Hunting Gear
Be sure to bring your best cold weather gear, binoculars, goggles, face mask, wool sox, wool pants (or Gore-Tex). Please try to limit your gear to 75 lbs.
For a rifle, it is recommended to use a large caliber rifle. We prefer 300 win mag or larger. Remove grease and oil from your bolt assembly and action. Bring at least two boxes of ammo. May also use archery equipment.
Your hides and skulls will be taken care of professionally, so you can take them home with you. Please keep in mind that your bear needs to be inspected by the Nome Fish and Game office before you leave. The Fish and Game office is not open on weekend. If you harvest your bear on a weekend you may need to change your return flight to the following Monday evening or Tuesday morning. If you need to make lodging arrangements in Nome check with the Aurora Inn & Suites, the Nome Nugget Inn or the Polaris Hotel.
Food and Lodging
After a long day of hunting guests will stay in a heated cabin, sleeping in comfortable beds. Please bring your sleeping bag. Your guide is also usually your cook and they know how to mix up some awesome wild game meals. Please let us know if you have any food allergies.
