Lodging and Accommodations
Cabin based camp for baited spring hunts.
A mix of real foods and dehydrated meals.
Typical Daily Schedule
After a hot breakfast, if you are spotting and stalking you will leave camp and travel the river drainages and areas around camp glassing for traveling bears or locate them feeding on the mountainsides. Baited hunts typically begin by reaching the stand late in the afternoon and settling in for a sit that can extend well into the night or even early the next morning. Our bait sites are large, comfortable permanent platforms that have been located at very active baits for years.
Outfitter has 24 years experience guiding and fishing Alaska. All guides are experienced, hard working and have field medical training. Guides will take care of cooking, animal care and packing. (Clients always welcome to pitch in!) Guiding is typically 1×1 unless scheduled otherwise.
Fly into Anchorage from lower 48 and take bush flight into camp (included).

SUGGESTED GEAR LIST
Spring Bear Hunts Over Bait
Spring isn’t just for turkey hunting! Big game hunters take advantage of this time of year to hunt bears. The gear you take on these hunts is different than what you’d take on a fall bear hunt.
The weather during spring bear season can vary widely, swinging from pleasant and sunny to wind, rain, and even snow….all in one day. You need to bring gear to cover all of those situations, while staying lightweight.
