Grizzly Bear hunting in Alaska
When a hunter thinks of hunting in Alaska; Grizzly Bears are usually the first species that comes to mind. There is not an animal in Alaska that will get your heart pounding on the final stalk like an Alaskan Grizzly Bear. Whether you chose to chase Grizzlies in the spring or fall; it will be an unforgettable hunt.
My spring and fall bear hunts are for Alaskan Interior Grizzly Bears. Your hunt will take place in Game Management Unit 25 by the famous Alaska Yukon River. Interior Grizzly Bears are known for the beautiful color phases of their fur. The colors range from almost black to gold and every color in between.
All of my bear hunts are fully guided. 1 hunter X 1 guide. Bear camps consist of Arctic Oven tents with cots and woodstoves. The tents are tall enough to stand up in and are very spacious.
Spring Grizzly Bear Hunt
As the bright warm spring sunshine releases winters grip on the snow covered mountains the Alaskan Grizzly digs out of its den in search of its first spring meal. We perch on mountain and ridge tops, basking in the spring sun, glassing for our quarry; anxiously waiting to catch a glimpse of a bear emerging from its den. Once a bear is spotted the heart rate picks up and the stalk is on.
A typical day at spring bear camp:
Rise at 6:00 AM and eat a hearty breakfast. Buckle up our heated helmets, fire up the snowmobiles and head to the snow covered mountaintops to glass the open expanses. Lunch is either sandwiches or Mountain House on the trail. After lunch we will visit more mountain tops and valleys in search of newly opened dens and tracks. We will also count the local moose and caribou herds to see if a bear or wolf has slipped in and killed one. After a long day on the trail we head back to base camp for a hearty dinner.
My spring Grizzly Bear hunts are conducted 100% by snowmobile. Each hunter will have his own snowmobile.
In the spring we typically see fewer bears on the 1st hunt but the bears we do see are typically large adult male bears. On the second hunt we typically see more bears with a mix of adult bears to sows with cubs.
The spring hunt is a multi-species hunt if you choose. You can harvest black bear or wolf for free until your grizzly bear is harvested. Once your grizzly bear is harvested, you can continue your hunt for black bear or wolf for $500.00 per day –No trophy fees. You must purchase and possess a black bear locking tag and harvest ticket to harvest black bear. Limit is 3 black bears. Locking tags or harvest tickets are NOT required to harvest wolves. Limit is 10 wolves.
Fall Grizzly Bear hunt
As old man winter knocks on the door; bears are smacking their lips on frost covered blueberries, trying to pack on as many calories as possible before their long winter nap. In fall bears travel to search for remaining blueberry morsels and the perfect den site. We travel to frosty mountain and ridge tops to glass large expanses. Once a bear is spotted the heart rate picks up and the stalk is on.
My fall Grizzly Bear hunts are conducted 100% by 4-wheeler. Each hunter will have his own 4-wheeler.
This hunt is a multi-species hunt if you choose. You can harvest black bear, wolverine, or wolf for free until your grizzly bear is harvested. Once your grizzly bear is harvested, you can continue your hunt for secondary species for $500.00 per day –No trophy fees. You must purchase and possess a locking tag and harvest ticket to harvest black bear and wolverine. Locking tags or harvest tickets are NOT required to harvest wolves. Limit is 10 wolves.
I highly encourage hunters to harvest wolves. My Grizzly Bear hunting area is currently under an intensive management predator control program by Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game to reduce wolf numbers.
