Land or Boat Based Peninsula Brown Bear Hunt



Spring or Fall Peninsula Brown Bear Hunt HFEO6423

The Alaska Peninsula offers some of the finest coastal brown bear hunting in the world. I have been hunting on the Alaska Peninsula since 1998 and have now acquired my own, sole use guiding area, from the US Fish and Wildlife Service. I’m allowed to conduct 4 Brown Bear hunts per year. The brown bear population is abundant in this area and I believe its one of the best bear hunting areas in the state. We hunt on the Pacific side of the Peninsula, 30 miles from Kodiak Island, across the Shelikof Straight. The terrain is varied from beaches and river valleys to ridge top hunting sites.

We Support Leave No Trace Policies
We try to make our guide business as successful as possible. This includes the best guides, gear and best places to hunt. We feel hunting in the USFWS Becharof National Wildlife Refuge will give our clients the best chances for success on their hunt. The advantage being, this is a sole use guiding area, so you will not be overrun by other guides and outfitters. You are reassured that you are hunting with a guide business that has underwent a difficult review of it’s capabilities and practices by the Wildlife Refuge Board. You are hunting in a protected wilderness area, as such your grandchildren will enjoy the same undeveloped view that you enjoy on your hunt. We fully-support Leave No Trace hunting for that reason.

Travel to the Alaska Peninsula Bear Camps
Your hunt starts in King Salmon, Alaska and you can fly there with Alaska Airlines. We will pick you up at the airport and transport you to the hunting area via wheeled and float equipped bush planes. Tent camps are placed on the beach based on quality of landing area and proximity of look-out. We strive to see as much terrain as possible. Bears range from 8ft to 10ft based on previous hunts, most bears taken being 9ft or better. Bear stalks are from 1/2 mile to 3 miles and possibly require gaining elevation quickly. Clients must be realistic about their physical abilities, as that will affect their success. Spring hunts are typically more physical than fall hunts. Fall hunts are conducted over looking one of the many salmon streams in the area and suggests for any with physical limitations. We will transport your trophy to King Salmon. From there you can ship it to your Alaska expeditor of choice.

The Alaska Peninsula has alternating seasons, spring of even numbered years and fall of odd numbered years. We run four 10-day hunts in the spring, and four 10-day hunts in the Fall.
