This Alaskan Outfitter conducts trophy Alaska Coastal Brown Bear (Brown/Grizzly) hunts for many years in several excellent hunting areas in southwest Alaska. Their large hunting concessions literally cover hundreds of square miles of prime wilderness habitat for Brown/Grizzly bears. These areas offer excellent hunting for Brown/Grizzly bear, as well as an opportunity for other species. Hunts are conducted from comfortable base and spike camps along river corridors and adjacent hillside ridges. They have been extremely successful on trophy Brown bear and combo hunts.
Fall Brown/Grizzly Bear Hunts:
Hunts are conducted during mid-August through early September. They primarily hunt river corridors where bears are feeding on the last runs of spawning salmon. This Alaskan Outfitter uses inflatable boats for bear hunts and do short hikes across braided streams to put stalks on trophy Brown bears. In September, bears transition off the river corridors at the end of salmon runs and move to adjacent hillsides to feed on berry patches before hibernation. Hunters should plan on doing a lot of glassing from strategic locations along river corridors, with some backpack style hikes across braided rivers and corridor river ridges. These hunts are spot and stalk and ground blind hunts for your trophy Brown bear. Hunters may upgrade their hunt for a second Brown bear, Moose, Black bear, Wolverine, and Wolf.Spring Brown/Grizzly Bear Hunts:
Hunts are conducted when bears emerge from hibernation and move to areas where the first sprouts of vegetation occur on south facing mountain and hillsides. Boars are searching for sows during the spring mating season and start pairing-up. We use inflatable boats for bear hunts and do short hikes across braided streams to put stalks on trophy Brown and Black bears. These hunts are backpack style hunts, we glass for bears from advantage points along river corridors and hill-side ridges. Hunts are spot and stalk and ground blind hunts for your trophy Brown bear. Spring hunts have long daylight hours (18 hours) for glassing and hunting. The country is very wide open and your able to glass for long distances and spot the trophy bear your after. Hunters may upgrade their hunt for a second Brown bear and Black bear.
