Spring Brown Bear Hunts
Fall Brown Bear Hunts

Alaska Brown Bear Hunting

In the spring, primarily in the month of May, the brown bears begin to emerge from their dens, when they do the first thing they want to due after 9 months of sleeping is eat. Southeast Alaska is covered by dense rainforest, in the spring the first thing to turn green is the beach grass located along the coast line. As the bears come out of their dens they head straight to the beach to consume the fresh buds.

This allows us to know exactly where the bears are headed when they come out of hibernation. We will anchor the yacht in an area where we know bears frequent, and where there is plenty of grassy shorelines. Once anchored we will use smaller skiffs, typically 16-18 foot aluminum runabouts, to cruise the miles of endless shoreline. Once we spot a respectable bear we will put the boat ashore and make a stalk. If the bear is a trophy, we will then due what we can to harvest the bear.

This method of hunting is highly successful, and typically allows us to see many bears on a 10 day hunt. We usually run at about an 80% success rate for shot opportunity on all of our bears.

Alaska Brown Bear Hunting

In mid summer the salmon start to run into the streams. Southeast Alaska has literally thousands of salmon streams and millions of salmon return to spawn each year. When these fish enter the streams it is like a buffet line for the bears. Brown bears will use these streams from August until late September, feasting on the high protein salmon in preparation for denning up for the winter.

This again allows us to know where the bears are, again concentrated over a dominant food source. In the fall, we will anchor the yacht somewhere near a multitude of productive salmon streams. We will then use the small boats to access the shore, and will hike up the streams in search of large trophy bears. Typically we will trip over many small bears and sows on the way to the best fishing holes, which the largest bears lay claim to. It is a very interactive hunt, and not one for the faint of heart. Close encounters with bears of all size are not uncommon. A typical shot opportunity on a fall hunt is at about 40 yards!

Either style hunt can be very productive and successful. Spring hunts are usually less physical and can be enjoyed by hunters of almost any ability, while hunting in the fall you will need to be ready to spend long days in hip waders on slippery rocks and fording streams. Fall is much more physically demanding, but can be highly rewarding and a full adventure!
