This trophy brown bear hunt takes place in the Alaska Peninsula Wildlife Refuge, in an exclusive guide-use area where the outfitter takes a very limited number of hunters each year. The peninsula is extremely remote and wild, and is composed of scenic mountain drainages, coastal beaches, and rivers and streams that are loaded with a variety of protein rich salmon in the Summer and Fall. This protein rich diet in conjunction with good genetics provides the perfect recipe for producing monster bears.
Our outfitter here has called the Alaska bush home for over thirty years. When he’s not outfitting, he lives off the grid with his family running his trap line. He has guided for all of the major species in the state for many years. His experience in the industry is top notch, having learned from the best. The guides are also full time Alaskan’s who know the country and animals intimately.
You’ll be flown in by bush plane to a remote landing strip and spike camp. All hunts are guided 1×1. Camps consist of dome style tents with cots and plenty of food. Be prepared for long days on the hills glassing the snow fields and hills sides in the Spring as bears are gradually emerging from their dens in search of sows. Fall hunts are spent glassing the many salmon streams in the area as bears gorge on the protein rich fish prior to hibernation. This is big country that requires mental toughness and patience. Due to the limited availability, hunts are typically reserved well over a year in advance. #616
