HUNTER: Gary Colbath
HUNT: Archery Polar Bear Hunt
CONSULTANT: Outdoors International
March 20 through April 2, 2022
I just returned from the pinnacle trip of my hunting career.
My adventure in the Arctic for polar bear was an extraordinary experience. As a hunting consultant I have access to the best outfitters in the world and the outfitter I chose to conduct this hunt is far and away the premier Arctic outfitter hands-down. This is their 40fth year in business and to say they have the process dialed in would be an understatement. Their help with logistics before, during and after the hunt was awesome. The Inuit guides they partner with are hunters themselves and definitely knew the country, the animals and how to help me deal with the harsh Arctic conditions.
The whole trip was a great cultural and hunting adventure.
As a consultant, I spend considerable time vetting and learning about hunts and doing them myself when possible.
I wouldn’t recommend a hunt I would not do myself. We are hunters working for hunters and want nothing more than to send you on the trip of a lifetime like I experienced. Given our services cost you nothing, there is no reason to ever book without using our services.

My hunt was absolutely top notch.
The outfitter is a fantastic man and incredibly hard working and knowledgeable, there is no doubt he will do everything within his power to make peoples hunts successful and enjoyable. I plan to do it again with him next year for sure.
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.
