Alaska Brown Bear Hunt 10047
Nothing will make the hair on your neck stand up on like the moment you hear the water splashing as massive brown bear chases salmon in the river as he is about to round the bend that you are sitting on! If you prefer hunting in the fall and are truly after a ten-foot brown bear you should consider this hunt in unit 9E near Port Heiden. Season dates for this area are from October 1st through the 25th of odd numbered years. On this hunt you are looking for 9 foot plus brown bear that can weigh as much as 1400 pounds. Hunting is done from spike camps that are only accessed by a super cub airplane equipped with large tundra tires. Hunting is primarily done in the low areas along the streams and rivers, that are full of salmon. Hunting also focuses on bedding areas along the many deeply worn trails, waiting and glassing for big brown bear to return to the brush. Hunters will be intercepting bear moving to and from their feeding grounds. Bow hunting for brown bear can be very effective in low areas of the Alaska peninsula, as most of the streams start from an under ground spring. As salmon move up these systems, they reach a dead end in the stream, and begin to pool up by the hundreds. This makes for a perfect area to bow hunt.
