Outfitter #033

"Arctic" Grizzly Hunting


This outfitter hunts two very different areas for grizzly bear. Hunts conducted in the Kotzebue area are for “Arctic” grizzly. These hunts are conducted north of the Arctic Circle in the fall season. The bears in this region have a wide color variation, with light blonde being the predominant color. Bears in this area typically range from 6.5 to a little over 8 feet. These are spot and stalk, fair chase hunts. Days will be spent glassing mountain sides for bear feeding on blueberries, roaming the tundra, feeding on a recent moose or caribou carcass, or feeding on late run salmon in rivers.

This is a great hunt to “combo” with for Caribou! The hunts in this area are on a draw basis, and require advance application. The hunts in the Iliamna area offer bears which tend to be a bit darker in color and slightly larger on average. These hunts are also spot and stalk fair chase hunts, and are done in early spring and fall. Spring hunts are spent glassing mountain slopes searching for bears as they come out of hibernation. Fall hunts are spent primarily glassing mountain slopes for bears feeding on berries, or working small streams as the bear feed on salmon. Tags for this hunt are available “over the counter.”
