Kodiak Brown Bear Hunts
Pursuing Kodiak’s big Brown Bear can be one of the greatest hunting adventures in North America! We are based out of a wilderness lodge and/or comfortable base camp. This is an extreme, backpack, expedition style hunt where big, mature, Kodiak bears are the goal and typically the outcome. Backpacking from lightweight spike camps with food and sleeping bags, allow the hunter to access unspoiled areas and hunting time is maximized. This is a huge advantage when it comes to hunting these old boars as they are most active late in the day. This is the ultimate spot-and-stalk hunt and our hunters have taken several stalks per hunt. Kodiak Brown Bear hunts require extreme hiking and backpacking. Most bears taken on this hunt will be 9 + feet with some 10 footers. Being able to access the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge and hunt it’s giant bears is a privilege and because permits are limited. In recent years, we have been 100% shooting opportunity for big Kodiak Brown Bears. We assist clients in processing limited draw permit applications to ADF&G.
