This is an exceptional hunt. The SCI All Time World Record grizzly was taken in 2013, and since then record bears were taken in 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Most people think Alaska when you mention brown bear hunting, but there is good hunting in Europe as well for the Eurasian brown bear. In Alaska, timing isn’t such a factor as you can hunt in the spring or the fall. We prefer the fall hunts in most circumstances, but the spring hunts are still great and we put hunters on trophy 9′ to 10′+ brown bears yearly.

Hunt Reports and Information:
If you stick to this brown bear hunting gear list, you’ll have everything you need on your hunt. If you’re on a guided hunt, your outfitter will provide a Satellite phone, or an Inreach for emergencies, and a first aid kit. Also, food, stove, fuel, water filters and tents will be provided on a guided hunt.
On May, 2018 on the Alaska Peninsula, Chris Cammack, broke Jack Brittingham’s record for the world record brown bear taken with a bow. After a lengthy stalk on a brushy mountain side in the wind & rain Chris was blessed to arrow this amazing brown bear at just 14 yards.
More than 32,000 brown bears call Alaska home! Even though there are technically two subspecies in North America (the grizzly and the Kodiak), all brown bears in Alaska are genetically identical. The difference between Coastal and Grizzly Bears is geographical and diet.
The Outfitter was a wonderful to work with and met all of our needs.
Brown bears don’t like being surprised, so you need a solid game plan, the ability to move quietly and stealthily, and the fortitude to maintain your cool under stress.
