About this hunt

We invite you to gather up your hip boots and a good rifle and come hunt some of the finest black bear country in the world! These bears are fresh out from hibernation. They grow large due to the maritime environment that offers ample salmon, rock crabs, sedges, berries, and sea life. The long days and mild temperatures of Spring makes for easy days afield. Our big boat is base camp and we use 16' skiffs to spot from. It is common to see big boars chasing sows as they come into rut. The grouse are booming in the mountains, steel head are headed up the streams from salt water, the songbirds are back from their trip South. These days afield are the nectar of a new year beginning. A big boar black bear will give you a gorgeous trophy; and if you are game to try, the meat makes wonderful stew meat, swiss steak, and Summer sausage. This is a great trip for both the trophy hunter looking for a book animal and the young hunter desiring a first animal. Bears average 7', we get occasional 7 1/2', the largest are 8'.

A+ operation

Boat based hunting offers a unique experience. Eli is one of the hardest working guides I have ever hunted with. Glaciers, ice bergs, seals, whales, and lots of goats.
