Alaska Brown Bear Hunt 10649
This exclusive Brown Bear hunt occurs within the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, utilizing an outfitter’s sole guide area. Limited to 3 hunters each in spring and fall, the harvested bears typically measure between 9 to 9 ½ feet, with strong potential for 10-foot or larger specimens. Kodiak Island consistently yields some of Earth’s largest Brown Bears, boasting impressive skull sizes noted in Boone and Crockett Record Books. The island sustains robust populations of these magnificent creatures, positioning Brown Bear hunting as the apex of North American hunting and among the world’s premier big game pursuits.
Conducted under fair chase principles, these hunts involve spot-and-stalk techniques within the Brown Bear season: April 15–29 in spring and October 25–November 8 in fall, spanning 15 days per permit. With ample time, hunters can selectively pursue the largest, oldest boars. Each hunt pairs one or two guides with a hunter, commencing with assistance upon arrival in Kodiak, where permits, gear, and accommodations are arranged before flying to camp. The main camp, mere yards from the sea, offers cozy double-walled tents, weatherproof shelters, powered amenities, and fresh, top-tier cuisine sourced from the sea.
Accessing the expansive hunting grounds involves a 42-foot Delta Seine boat and swift 18-foot Boston Whaler skiffs, enabling exploration of various bays. Activities include shore stalking, hillside observation, and meticulous bear spotting. Successfully stalking these intelligent, elusive creatures demands patience, as bears possess keen senses. The return to camp each night allows for rest and nourishment, while satellite spike camps, featuring comfortable tents and enhanced maneuverability, offer strategic advantages for accessing specific areas or targeting large bears, complementing boat-based expeditions. Overall, this hunt demands perseverance and commitment, requiring hunters to endure challenging weather conditions while collaborating closely with guides to maximize opportunities for encountering and harvesting Kodiak’s impressive Brown Bears.
