Kodiak Bear Hunts
Hunt huge brown bears on Kodiak Island
You’ll land in the head of a bay, so hunters will start out sheltered from much of Alaska’s harsh weather. This keeps seas relatively calm for the boat ride out to one of the many hunting locations available and with 2 separate valleys to hunt. The guides have ample options to set hunter’s up so they have the best opportunity of harvesting the Brown Bear they’re after. Transport is not even a factor sometimes as camp is located in the “hibernation corridor” for these Brown Bears and it is not uncommon to glass up bears from camp.
Hunters will return to camp every night where they can enjoy the comfort of their own 16’x28′ heated cabin with a shower and a real bed. A hot “home cooking” style supper will be provided each night and hot breakfast is available every morning (along with other options for those who prefer a lighter start).
The odds of seeing bears on this hunt are as close to 100% as possible and the outfitter ups the odds by taking hunters out during the most productive time of the open season. Harvest rates have been very good as well do to tags being extremely limited, non-residents are required to hunt with a certified guide and the nearest guide operates far from this area.
Big bears due to the limited hunting; 10′+ bears live in this area.
- Limited hunting pressure in the region; only 5 spring tags and 3 fall tags.
- 30 years of guiding with a very high success rate; located in the bears’ “hibernation route”.
- “3 hots and a cot”…A bed actually…return nightly to a heated cabin with bed, shower and hot meals provided.
- These are draw tags…get put in for the draw on time:
- Spring hunt application period is Nov 1 – Dec 15.
- Fall hunt application period is May 1 – May 31.
In the Fall, you can make it a combo hunt.
In the fall hunters have the option to combo their hunt with Sitka Blacktail and/or Mountain Goat both of which also have thriving populations in this area.
