Vast Alaska has exclusive use to Private Native Land for Brown Bear Hunting. Roger Kolassa agreed to escape with us to the shores of the Pacific Ocean approximate to Chignik Bay, Alaska. What was in store for him was an eye opening account of how a Brown Bears behavior is so diverse. Brown Bears have a complex social structure in which they establish order, practice infanticide and mating rituals much like a lion.

During our 8 days Brown Bear Hunting we witnessed a boar kill a sows cubs, devour them and then chase the sow along a ridge line to finally keep her at bay on a steep ice face for three days. The sow did not take a liking to the boar and he found himself within range of Rogers rifle. It is not clearly known why the boars practice infanticide, it is speculated that they only kill cubs not spawned from their own seed and possibly to weed out prospective competitors in the mating process. Brown Bear Hunting is without question, exciting!
