This Alaska Brown Bear hunt takes you to the famous Game Management Unit 9 southwest of Anchorage. Unit 9 has one of the largest populations of brown bear in the world, and many record bear waiting to be taken. Best of all is that this outfitter has exclusive bear hunting rights in the very heart of one of the best areas on the peninsula. This means no competition from other hunters. It also allows them to manage the harvest while maximizing size & numbers of bears. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has designated the Alaska Peninsula as a trophy bear hunting area for game management purposes. To accomplish this, seasons have been restricted since 1976. Fall hunts take place in October of odd years and spring hunts take place in May of even years. The Alaska Peninsula has been producing the largest hides and largest skull sizes in Alaska over the last 20 years. Bears from this camp have ranged between 8 foot 8 inches and 11 foot 6 inches in size with an overall average of 9 foot 4 inches. Weather on the Peninsula is seldom what you could call good, often it’s downright horrible. But then big bears live where the weather is the worst so it’s something everyone tolerates. The worst weather is generally encountered during October when high winds can be a major factor, however, you tend to see more bears in the fall than in the spring.
