Boat Based Alaska Black Bear Hunt on Kuiu Island


This boat based coastal black bear hunt takes place from a state-of-the-art 70'+ yacht in southeast Alaska.  Kuiu Island is home to one of the highest populations of black bears in the state, and the trophy quality is second to none.  Most bears harvested will square out at around 7' with 19"+ skulls, including the opportunity for a Boone and Crockett skull.  This seven day adventure is much more than just a hunt.  It's an opportunity to experience the beauty of Alaska in comfort.  Four comfortable staterooms, each with a private bath, will be your home away from home for the week.  Plus with a maximum of just 2-4 hunters at a time, it's a great opportunity for a private hunt for a parent/child or a small group of friends.  Yours days are spent glassing the coastline and cruising the shoreline and creeks by skiff with your guide.  Bears are typically found feeding on the fresh green sedge and crustaceans along the beaches.  Once a good bear is located, you and your guide will beach the skiff and the stalk is on!  The opportunity also exists to harvest a wolf at no additional cost.
