Alaska Peninsula Brown Bear Hunts
We hunt the big Coastal Brown Bear on the Alaska Peninsula on our exclusive native land concession and public state land near the Katmai National Park and Preserve. Alaska Peninsula is the best area in the world for trophy Coastal Brown Bear. We have the largest hunting concession on the Alaska Peninsula for Brown Bear with more than 30 miles of coastline in prime Brown Bear habitat. We manage our concession for the best trophy quality and overall population for our clients. We have a very high density of Brown Bear in our area to provide ample opportunities for our hunters. We have harvested bears in the upper 8 ft. to 10 ft. plus range. Brown Bears in this area average 9 ft. plus squared. Typically, hunters see over 20 bears while on their hunt. Hunts are staged from our base camp which has heated Arctic Oven tents and Kitchen tents. We provide safe, comfortable, and highly successful trophy hunts. Spring seasons are May 10th – 31st of even numbered years and Fall seasons are October 1st – 21st of odd numbered years. On the Alaska Peninsula, you can shoot only one Brown Bear every four regulatory years. We've had an extremely high success rate on big Coastal Brown Bears for many years. Wolf is species of opportunity and available at no charge. Black Bear are available for trophy fee.

Arrival/departure point is Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, Anchorage, Alaska, where you will be met at the airport. Clients are responsible for commercial airline travel to/from Anchorage and air charter service to/from base camp. We suggest you arrive 1-2 days prior to your hunt commencing, to purchase Alaska hunting license, Brown/Grizzly bear tag, registration permit, any additional hunting gear or personal items you may need. From Anchorage, clients have two options for charter air service to base camp: 1) take air charter service from Anchorage to base camp during high tide. 2) travel by commercial airline from Anchorage to Homer (Ravn Alaska) followed by an air charter service from Homer to/from base camp during high tide. We assist clients in coordinating air charter service to/from base camp. Air charter fees are determined by type of float plane/aircraft (Super Cub, Maule, Cessna 206 or DeHavilland Beaver) and length of flight. Air charter flights have passenger and weight restrictions. You may not hunt on the same-day-airborne. For departure schedule, recommend 1-2 days in Anchorage for taxidermy trophy care or expediting trophy from Alaska to taxidermist of your choice. We recommend purchasing airline tickets with flexible change policies in the event of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances that may affect your airline travel.
