Prince of Wales Island is an Under-Pressured Hunting Destination
Despite the publicity and record book bears, this gem has remained under-pressured. Whether it’s the effort it takes to get there, the lack of interest by island resident’s, or the sheer carrying capacity of the area, it is a proven producer of high quality black bears.
This is typically a boat based bear hunt.
With all the amenities, the hunt is comfortable and rewarding. The hunt involves glassing the beaches in the springtime as big boars feed on the first green grass of spring and search for sows. When September arrives, they will be keyed on salmon that pour inland to spawn making for an exciting, up close and personal hunt.
Coming back to the boat for a seafood feast and a warm bed adds to the adventure, recounting the days excitement. Making the stalk on a bear fight full rut or realizing you’re walking through the big bears bedroom, this is a hunt you won’t soon forget. The ocean against a backdrop of steep fjords makes a Prince of Wales bear hunt extra amazing!
