Spring Hunts

Fall Hunts

We hunt Spring and Fall Brown Bear in the Cold Bay area of Alaska, which includes the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge. This remote wilderness area has diverse wildlife that includes wolf, fox, caribou, moose, and many species of waterfowl and fish. There may be time and opportunity for fishing and other game hunting. Please review our Spring Brown Bear and Fall Brown Bear pages for more information.

We conduct dall sheep, grizzly, moose, and caribou hunts all in the Central Brooks Range, based out of Bettles. This is an extremely remote and untouched part of Alaska that offers exceptional hunting opportunities.

Our trophy Dall Sheep hunts are second to none, and we have very limited openings for them. This is a very physically demanding hunt. We recommend that hunters arrive in top physical condition to give you the best chance at success.


Having hunted with Mountain Monarchs seven times in the past twelve years, the Peninsula brown bear hunt just concluded was the best yet. In fact, it was probably the finest North American hunt I've experienced in the last thirty years! Not only is my old boar spectacular, as he squared 10 feet, 10.5 inches, every aspect of the hunt was flawless. The David River base camp was like a home away from home, with great food and wonderful crew. Spike camp was more than comfortable, and the number of bears viewed over the five actual hunting days was staggering. To the smallest detail, everything went off without a hitch, and I can't wait to return.
