Description

This outfitter has acquired a Grizzly Bear area in Northwest Alaska. Since then they have been very successful in both their Spring and Fall hunts. This outfitter has a 40% kill ratio on B&C Grizzly Bears. While their kill ratio is much higher than that, not many outfitters, if any can make that statement when it comes to a Book Grizzly. If you are looking for an awesome Grizzly Bear Hunt, Go No Further! Spring Grizzly Bear Hunt: These hunts are done in a backpack manner with the outfitter flying into remote ridge tops and then spiking out from there searching for the best bear that they can find. The country is very open which lends the outfitter to do lots of glassing, sometimes at very far distances. This is the mating time for the bears and once a boar and sow are paired up they tend not to roam around a lot. Because of this mating behavior it allows us to glass bears on far ridges and still have enough time to close the distance. These hunts can be very physical and hunters will be required to carry 40lbs. plus their gun while hunting, and their pack will be even heavier once a bear is killed. Fall Grizzly Bear Hunt: These hunts take place during the first half of Sept. At this time the Grizzly Bear have pretty much pulled off the Salmon and are in the berry patches on the open side hills. The outfitter flies into remote gravel bars or ridge tops where they make their way down the river with a rubber raft. Early in the hunt the hunters may have to walk the riverbanks as they drag the raft through many shallow spots until they pick up enough water to float the river. While they walk the banks, all of their gear is in the rafts making traveling a lot less physical, with the hunter only having to carry his gun. They will do a lot of glassing from the river along with doing some side hikes up on open ridges. They camp along the river each night and the amount of gear that the hunter will carry during the hunt is much less than during the spring hunts.
