Alaska Peninsula Brown Bear Hunt

Overview

Alaska Peninsula Brown Bear Hunt

The most densely populated brown bear population in Alaska at the exclusive guide area in the Katmai National Park & Preserve on the Alaska Peninsula. A limited number of hunters keeps your success rate high and the trophy quality great. The hunts are backpack hunts, so you need to be in good shape to fully enjoy your experience. We take pride in managing the area which helps maintain the resource for years to come.

We guide in an exclusive concession in the Katmai National Park and Preserve. We are the only outfitter allowed to guide in this area. We take care of this area, treating the land as if it was our own and managing the game so it will flourish.

This is truly a hunt of a lifetime!

On the Alaska Peninsula we hunt brown bear in the spring of even years (2018, 2020, 2022, etc.) and the fall of odd years (2017, 2019, 2021, etc.). Both the spring and fall hunts are ten days. We also hunt Dall sheep, moose, grizzly bear, black bear and wolf in the Wrangell Mountains.

Our hunts are one-on-one guided and each hunter will be paired with their own registered guide for the entire hunt (unless requested otherwise). All of our guides are experienced, knowledgeable, and highly trained.

CRITICAL:  The hunts are all backpack and you will need to be in great shape. It is spot and stalk hunting from a lookout and we may hike 1-5 miles a day.  The Alaska tundra is like walking on a mattress all day long.  It is not easy and you need to be in great shape.

Itinerary

How do I get there?

The client has to get to Anchorage, AK on a commercial plane. Then from Anchorage to Iliamna with Iliamna Air Taxi, the round trip ticket is $470 to Iliamna. We will meet you in Iliamna.

How do I get a license and tag?

All tags, licenses, and registration permits must be purchased online and received prior to leaving for your hunt.

The state of Alaska requires brown bear hunter registration. This is to be completed after the client’s hunting license and big game tags are purchased. It also must be completed THREE months before the start of the client’s hunt. We strongly advise avoiding any delays.

Clients will not be allowed to hunt without validation and possession of the big game brown bear tag, hunting license and proof of brown bear registration.

Lodging

We will be staying in 10×10 Arctic Oven tents with cots. These tents are durable and waterproof all-season tents with a large vestibule for storage. They are tried & true and work great on the Peninsula with its unpredictable weather. We will also have smaller all-season tents for backup if something were to happen.

The meals are freeze-dried for dinner and breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, and plenty of snacks throughout the day.
