SRL3 – Alaska Grizzly Bear Hunts with Stoney River Lodge
Alaska Grizzly Bear Hunts
This is probably the best grizzly bear hunt we know of. BIG bears, and a good combo in the fall.
This is a great hunt for trophy grizzlies. A fair chase, spot and stalk hunt for the Alaskan grizzly is typically high on most hunters “bucket lists.” For past 20+ years our hunters have consistently qualified for SCI record book and many for Boone and Crockett records. In the fall, this hunt can be a combo hunt with trophy moose, caribou, and or black bear. These species can be added to your grizzly hunt for additional trophy fees. We highly recommend having the extra tags in your pocket.
The all time #1 SCI grizzly was taken on this hunt.
- The fall hunt takes place in September and October.
- The spring hunt is April and May and a second bear can be taken on a trophy fee.

All trips are limited to one hunter with one guide per camp, unless the client requests otherwise, or the hunt is booked as a 2×1. After you tag your animal and take field photos, it is caped, quartered and butchered for packing to spot suitable for aircraft pick-up.
Typical Daily Schedule
On most hunts, you will rise early and typically glass from camp, eat a hot breakfast, and then hike to a high spot to glass all day or until you find a good stalkable animal. It will be stalking and/or calling from there. Hunters will also be doing a great deal of calling with their guide.
