Hunting strategy will depend on what season you choose. First of all, in the Fall you have shorter days. As a result, sunrise and sunset are the pivotal hours for finding Big Bears. Although their hides are thinner rubbing won’t be a factor. Ultimately Bears are focused on gaining weight this time of year. Your hunting strategies will also be based around food sources such as; salmon, berries and beach forage. Alternatively, the longer days in the Spring equate to more hours glassing. Spring hides are developed and full with a small percentage being rubbed. In essence, intercepting Boars en route to Sows in estrous is your primary objective.
Here are a few things to consider. First, you will appreciate that our target is mature and exceptionally sized Bears in the 9’ and 10+ range. Also, wether you are an Archery or a Rifle hunter, we have the professional experience to guide you. We include Bush Plane transportation from our base in Chignik Bay to our many Alaska Brown Bear Hunting camps. Dont forget, we own and operate our own Super Cubs for all bush flights.
“I am amazed at what a Brown Bear is capable of, it continuously stretches its boundaries in habitat, has the most complex social structure and as individuals have unique behaviors including genocide. After all they are a higher order species. And to hunt a truly large bear one has to adhere to a code as a Bear Hunter, managing his own scent and acting only with a deft and decisive action.” – Cash Joyce
