Alaska Peninsula Brown Bear
The Alaska Peninsula rivals, and may even be better than Kodiak Island for HUGE brown bears.
The Alaska Peninsula near Cold Bay, Alaska is one of our premier brown bear hunting areas. It is only hunted on even numbered years during the spring, and is hands down the best location for trophy sized brown bears in Alaska. This region is good, if not better than Kodiak Island for huge coastal brown bears.
Spring Brown Bear Hunts on the Alaska Peninsula
Last spring one of our hunters took a giant brown bear that squared over 11′ and multiple 10+ footers are taken yearly. In 2016 we had another hunter take a bear that squared 11′ 2″ with a 30.6″ skull.
- May 10-31 (only on even numbered years)
- Most spring brown bears will square over 10′!
- Hunting is from spike camps accessed by a Super Cub with large tundra tires. You will be hunting near the Bering Sea where bears will be searching for carcasses as the bears emerge from their dens.
Fall Brown Bear Hunts on the Alaska Peninsula
If you would prefer to hunt in the fall, and are truly after a 10′ brown bear, you want to consider this hunt. You will be spot-and-stalk or stand hunting primarily in the low country along the salmon streams and rivers which will be full of returning sockeye and silver salmon. The bears will be feeding on the fish to gain weight needed for hibernation.
If you want to hunt out of a Historic Alaska Lodge and have the opportunity at a ten footer, then you have that option during the fall brown bear hunts. This is a good hunt for hunters with physical limitations, such as wheelchair or mobility issues.
- October 1-21 (only on odd numbered years)
- The goal on this hunt is a bear over 9′, but they can get up to and over 10’5″ if you get lucky. *each year we take at least one bear from this area that will qualify for SCI and B&C.
Incredible trip! Lots of opportunity for big bears. Outfitter was very encouraging of bowhunters.
My wife loved the trip and would recommend it to any lady who wants to see what their husband does on these hunts.
I would highly recommend this hunt to anyone who wants a relatively easy hunt bear hunt. The guides run lots of baits and their are lots of bears around. Not to mention I must have seen 200 elk and close to that number of deer. A great experience!
Overall the trip was great. Bear hunting was great, and a little fishing as a bonus. Harvested a nice bear.
The bear hunting was excellent. We saw double figures in bears each day we were hunting, with several opportunities on stalks each day.
This is an archery hunters dream to go on this hunt. I shot 3 Bears in one night. One Brown and two Black Bears. I then shot a third Black Bear on the last night.
Hunting with this outfitter was a wonderful experience. This hunt is great value for the money! My guide, Lyle was an extremely knowledgeable hunter and great all-around guy.
I wanted you all to know what an extraordinary trip I felt it was! Thank you all for everything! It was awesome and couldn’t have been better!
I have to say up front that this Vessel-Based Alaska black bear hunt was one of the most awesome hunting trips I have ever been on.
Unbelievable one day hunt. I thank Mat Cervantes for putting me on another awesome European hunt. I’ve been on two European hunting trips with Outdoor International and have harvested 2 Gold and 2 Silver Medal animals.
