There aren’t many reasons to visit this place and even fewer motivations for someone to take up residence on the island. Afognak Island is a small land mass about 20 miles long and 40 miles wide off the coast of Alaska in the Kodiak Archipelago.

There are fewer than 100 permanent residents, most of whom work at a state-run salmon hatchery. There are no bars or shopping malls on Afognak, but there is a large population of Kodiak brown bears and a few healthy herds of Roosevelt elk. That’s what makes Afognak Island brown bear hunting so incredible.

If you you don’t like the idea of hiking to a high spot and glassing all day for bears, don’t worry.

You’ll be cruising the shores with a boat. Their warm, comfortable cabin-cruisers are an amazing way to explore the shores of Afognak Island in search of a giant boar. You’ll spot tons of wildlife and even assorted marine-mammals.

    The bears are very nice. After field judging quite a few, we killed two nice boars. A 9 foot, 3 incher and a 8 foot, maybe 7 incher.
