These are exceptional fly-in, remote, spot-and-stalk Arctic grizzly bear hunting trips. Your days will be spent glassing mountain sides for bears feeding on blueberries, roaming the tundra, feeding on a recent moose or caribou carcass, or fishing for late run salmon in rivers. The grizzly bears in this region have a wide color variation, with light blonde being the predominant color. Bears in this area typically range from 6.5 to a little over 9 feet.
Add a caribou to your hunt.
The great thing about Arctic grizzly bear hunting in the Brooks Range is that you can add a caribou for a trophy fee if you see a good one. And seeing a good one is not an uncommon thing in this area.
Our hunters have great success on trophy bears.
An average male grizzly weighs about six hundred to seven hundred and fifty pounds but occasionally a monster comes along with weights of twelve hundred to fifteen hundred pounds and standing nine and a half feet tall. In recent years, we had two bears taken who were over nine feet. One came in a nine feet one inch and the other nine feet two inches. To put things in perspective, they were big bears!
Part of the reason for these bigger bears is availability of food sources. There have been some great salmon runs in the last 10-15 years. The season has also been warmer longer during that time frame, which is great for cub survival. Thirty years ago you would commonly see a sow with one cub. Nowadays it is not uncommon to see a sow with three to four cubs.Contact us about this hunt
Arctic Grizzly Bear Hunting Unit 23 in the Alaska Brooks Range is incredible!
The oldest known wild inland grizzly came from Alaska’s Brooks Range and lived to be 34 years of age. The Brooks Range is a huge mountain range in the far north of Alaska. It spans about 700 miles across northern Alaska and reaches into Canada’s Yukon Territories. It is home to a great number of Arctic grizzly bears. Not convinced?
