This area produces some of the largest brown bears taken not only on Kodiak, but the state of Alaska each year.
Kodiak Brown Bear Hunts in Alaska
The Alaska Department of Fish & Game has determined that our Brown Bear populations are in fact growing island wide and is proposing an increase in the harvest levels of these bears on some areas of the islands, which are the areas that we hunt.
You will access the hunting camps via lots of hiking, so the better shape you are in the more enjoyable and successful your hunt will be. This is a draw tag, please apply prior to the December 15th deadline. WE CAN APPLY FOR YOU.
Spring Kodiak Brown Bear Hunts
The Spring Kodiak Island Brown Bear hunting season opens on April 1st and closes May 15th. There are approximately two to three golden weeks of bear hunting during the Kodiak Island Spring brown bear season as bears are emerging from their dens.
Fall Kodiak Brown Bear Hunts
The fall Kodiak Island Brown Bear hunting season runs October 25th through November 25th.
During the fall, days are getting a little bit shorter and bears are returning to their dens. Even though this makes hunting a bit tougher, fall bears have been gorging on salmon all summer and are fine trophies. One great thing about hunting in the fall is you don’t need to worry about the hide being rubbed like you do on spring hunts.
There’s a good chance to get the “Kodiak Slam” if you hunt in the Fall.
In the fall, brown bear hunters on Kodiak Island have the option to combo their hunt with Sea ducks, Sitka blacktail and/or mountain goat. Goat hunting depends on whether or not you have a tag and the area you’re hunting.
Kodiak Island and all of the islands of the archipelago are home to a very large population of Sitka Blacktail, which begin their rut on or about the 1st of November. This timing coincides with the fall brown bear hunting season ok Kodiak Island. Of course, you’ll concentrate solely on securing your trophy brown bear before switching to deer hunting, but if a nice buck is spotted there’s always the option to switch gears on the fly.
