HUNTER/HOST: Russ Meyer
TRIP TAKEN: Baited Bear Hunt in Alaska
Russ Meyer just returned from hosting an Alaska hunt with his client, Jared Griffith. They were there to vet a new outfitter and to hunt brown bears over bait. Russ chose to hunt with his recurve. They saw a ton of bears both black bears and brownies. You can read Jared’s hunt report here.
This baited bear hunt has an incredible success rate.
With near 100% for this Alaska combo bear hunt you can get the best of both worlds with Alaska black bears in all different color phases, and brown bears with chocolate to almost a white colored fur. The schedule is also what sets this hunt aside. Wake up late as you will be hunting almost until midnight most nights. After you wake up enjoy some Sockeye salmon fishing before you hit the stands for the rest of the day.
This is an amazing baited bear hunt in Alaska.
The outfitter says that this has been one of their most reliable experiences over the last five years. All hunters that went for brown bear and black bear had shots! All hunters that wanted to harvest a black bear had the opportunity to harvest last year. Among those bears were several beautiful color-phase bears. This outfitter had about 30 baits and about 200 black bears and 80 brown bears that were visiting these baits.

Our hunt was excellent.
We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.
What an amazing experience!
The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
