Brown Bear Hunting Alaska
Alaska Coastal Brown Bear (Brown/Grizzly Bear) Hunts
We conduct trophy Alaska Coastal Brown Bear (Brown/Grizzly) hunts for many years in several excellent hunting areas in southwest Alaska. Our 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. Fall hunts are conducted during mid-August through early September. We primarily hunt river corridors where bears are feeding on the last runs of spawning salmon. We use 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. We have been extremely successful on trophy Brown bear and other species.

Travel: 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. Clients are responsible for air charter service (passenger seat and gear) from Anchorage to/from base camp. We suggest you arrive 1-2 days prior to your hunt commencing, to purchase Alaska hunting license, Brown/Grizzly bear locking tag, any additional hunting gear or personal items you may need. 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.
