Brown bear hunting in Alaska

Brown bear hunting in Alaska ({{totalToursString}})

The range of the Brown Bear covers almost the whole state of Alaska, but the highest concentrations are found on coastal areas, where the bruins feed on salmon runs. That’s where they rich truly impressive size. The biggest brown bears in the world inhabit Kodiak Island. The bigger and somewhat more peaceful animals in the coastal areas are usually referred to as brown bears, while the somewhat smaller and more aggressive bears of the inland are often called grizzly bears. There are two brown bear seasons in Alaska: the spring and the fall. The spring season typically offers better skin quality, and the bears that have just left the dens may be easier to spot and stalk. However, it is not open in all areas. The autumn season is longer and offers better opportunities to combine a bear hunt with a deer or moose hunt or fishing. Spot-and-stalk is the preferred method of hunting, although baiting and even calling may sometimes be used, too. Brown bear hunting in Alaska is an expensive proposition. Coastal hunts for Kodiak monsters in other places where you can hope to harvest a 10’ trophy top the price list. Non-residents can only hunt brown bears in Alaska if accompanied by a professional guide or a resident who is a close relative. You will typically have to travel into the wilderness by a boat or bush plane. This is really a dangerous game hunting - a brown bear can cover 15 yards faster than many hunters can work the bolt of their rifle, so carry a big stick and practice using it. But few hunts in the world can compare to a close encounter with a big brown bear!

Looking for best hunting trips for You...

Why do I see different types of prices?
There are two types of hunts on our platform: Package Hunts and Customizable Hunts. Package Hunts are fixed offers. Customizable Hunts usually allow you to select species and other parameters (number of hunters and guests, etc.) and then you can see the final price of your hunt.

"Package price" tag - this price tag is shown for package hunts, and it's a final price for an offer.

"Price from" tag - we show this tag for customizable hunts either when you search for particular species or when there is only one type of species in an offer. In both cases we include the minimum trophy fee available for this type of animal. It means that you see the final price of the offer, but you can also customize it (e.g. you can include a bigger trophy into your hunt).

"Daily rate fee" tag - this price does NOT include trophy fee. For example, if you are searching for a destination and we can't figure out the species you want, then we show this tag. You will need to include trophies from a hunt page.

Fall Coastal Brown Bear Hunt 1x1 Alaska, United States

The early to late-fall run of Chum, Sockeye and Coho salmon make this hunt prime. Hunt strategy will range from spot & stalk and ladder stands to bank sitting and pop-up blinds. My policy of one hunter at a time is generally adhered to when brown bear hunting, as the added noise, scent and associated interference of a second hunter will only spoil the chances of success for everyone. Most fall brown bears will be taken during the last light of the day or by moon light. This hunt can be booked as a rifle or archery hunt. Extremely large Brown Bears in Southeast Alaska are not normally as abundant as at Kodiak Island or the Alaska Peninsula. However, some of the largest bears ever taken in Southeast Alaska were taken from my hunt area by my clients. Hunters who have patience, and sometimes simple luck, have harvested brown bears that square 9-feet plus. To-date the largest bear my clients have taken squared 9.8 feet; which is a true measurement – no fudging. It may have gotten bigger by the time it was mounted (They often do) Skull sizes at Haines have exceed 28 inches, but a large bear in Southeast Alaska is anything over 24 inches. Brown Bear, Black Bear and Mt. Goat can be booked as a combination high country hunt. We have no shooting hours in Alaska. The largest, most wary Brown Bears are nocturnal in nature. I can provide a Winchester Model 70 rifle in .338 Magnum and Leopold scope that has an illuminated red dot and a 56-mm objective lens for night hunting. We do not use night vision scopes or infrared scopes because they are illegal in Alaska. We hunt only with natural light. Hunters should arrive a day before a hunt starts, and depart a day after it ends.

Boat Based Fall Brown Bear 2021 Alaska, United States

You will be hunting the Famous ABC Islands (Admiralty, Baranof, and Chicagof) for huge Brown Bears. We have hunts available in both spring and fall every year. Our hunts take place from one of our Yachts that serve as base camp. From there you access the hunting areas in smaller 16 -18 ft boats or “Skiffs. Fall Brown Bear hunting in southeast Alaska takes place along one of numerous streams where salmon spawn, during the months of September and October. Hunts are based from one of our custom vessels, with hunters venturing forth one-on-one to a separate hunting location each day; returning to a warm, dry boat and a hot meal each evening. Skiffs launched from the “base camp” vessel are used to access river estuaries, then hunts are a walk then sit style up the salmon streams in the beautiful old growth rainforest. This hunt offers the unique experience of being in some of the most magical environments on earth. Hunters are expected to be able to walk upwards of 2 miles in Chest waders over slick moss covered rocks, logs, trees and uneven ground. The Brown Bear we work to harvest square from 9ft to 10ft+ with skull size ranging from 23 - 28 inch. Our Black Bear square from 7ft to 8 1/2ft+ with skulls ranging from 17 - 22 inch.

2021 Alaska Peninsula Brown Bear Hunt Alaska, United States

Alaska Peninsula hunts alternate seasons, May 10-25th of even numbered years and October 7-21 of odd numbered years. During the spring hunts the bears are emerging form their dens where they have been for the past 6 months. During this time the bears are on the search for food and as the season the progresses the large boars are looking for sows as the mating season is beginning. During the fall hunts the bears are busy fattening up for the long winter ahead, bears will be found in the creeks fishing and on the hills sides eating berries. Hunts are conducted 1x1 from tented spike camps throughout our 2 exclusive guide areas located within the Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge, do have a remote cabin from which we take 2 hunters each year. Our guide area is 593 square miles and consist of all the drainages the flow into both upper and lower Ugashik Lake. This area has over 20 streams that are teaming with both sockeye and silver salmon in the fall and the nearby hills offer great denning habitat. By limiting the number of clients per year we have been able to maintain very high success rates with our clients harvesting 9 plus ft bears. Each hunter will have their own 4 season tent that you can stand in, outfitted with cots and sleeping pads. Our food consist of hardy home cooked meals as we stay away from freeze dried food. Season Dates: Oct 7th-21st May 10th-25th

Alaska Peninsula Fall Brown Bear 2021 Alaska, United States

Our Brown Bear hunts take place on the Alaska Peninsula where we have 3 sole guide use areas located in Aniakchak National Preserve, Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge and Becharof National Wildlife Refuge. We are the only ones permitted to guide hunters in these respective guide use areas. We take a limited number of bear hunters each year and make a focused effort to take only the most mature trophy class animals. Most of the bears we harvest are in the 9 foot range, and there is certainly good possibilities to find bears that are 10 foot or better. The Alaska Peninsula is home to some of the largest Brown Bears on earth, and supports very healthy populations of these amazing animals in some of the States most remote hunting areas. Hunting Brown Bear is certainly the pinnacle of North American Hunting, and one of the premier big game species in world. Our brown bear hunts, like ALL the hunts we do, are completely fair chase. Hunting brown bear is all spot and stalk. Our hunts are 11 days and are guided with 1 guide and 1 hunter, or 2 guides and 1 hunter. Your hunt begins with you arrive into our main camp. Once there you will be paired up with a guide, and often a packer as well, and flown to a spike camp. Our spike camps are very comfortable and we eat very well. Normal meals consist of eggs, oatmeal, bagels, hash browns and sausage for breakfasts and fresh salmon, moose meat or burger, pork chops, pasta, vegetables with dinners. You have your own tent for sleeping and your guide will have his own tent, along with a separate tent for meal preparations.
