Fall Brown Bear Hunts In the Alaska Wilderness Cold Bay Area

Fall Brown Bear Hunts In the Alaska Wilderness Cold Bay Area

Our Fall Brown Bear hunts run from October 1st to 11th, or October 11th to 21st. We also offer a brown bear and caribou combo hunt from September 25 through October 10, which is an awesome opportunity to harvest both during an exciting 16 day hunt. The October 11 - 21 hunt is brown bear only. 

You will be hunting in Alaska's Cold Bay and Izembek Refuge area, where we have two exclusive guide concessions. Historically this is one of the very best areas for trophy Brown Bear in the world.

We hunt these big brown bears by the spot and stalk method along salmon choked rivers. As the bears leave the salmon streams, we hunt higher in the prime berry areas and below denning areas as the voracious bruins prepare for a long winter. Wolf and wolverine are present in the area and will often respond to a predator call.

Other Game

Ptarmigan (grouse) hunting is available as well as waterfowl hunting. Brant and sea ducks are prevalent and fun to hunt when we have extra time. You will need to purchase a State and Federal Duck and Waterfowl Stamp. See the table below for information on tags and license fees.

Fishing for Silver Salmon and Steelhead (if running) can provide much enjoyment if weather and time allows. If you hope to fish, a fishing license is required. See the table below for information on tags and license fees.

Base Camp Accommodations:

Enjoy comfortable heated cabins situated around the kitchen and dining facilities. Share camaraderie while feasting on home cooked meals. Power and hot showers are available at the beginning and end of the hunt - all within a 35-minute flight of your spike camp in prime Brown Bear country. While base camp is plenty comfortable, it is not a lodge.

Spike Camps:

Established campsites are in key positions that have been proven over the past 40 years. Each camp consists of 2 tents – (1) 8x8 Eureka and (1) 10x10 Eureka Bomb Shelter or Hurricane Hut – cots, pads, warm sleeping bags, tables, chairs, lanterns, heaters and lots of good food along with a skilled and personable guide. Satellite phones are in each camp and each guide is on a check-in schedule with the base camp. Camps are re-supplied every few days.

You must purchase a hunting license and a Brown Bear tag. You can do that online with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

I once again want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful Brown Bear Hunt this past fall, October 2011. I was very impressed with the organization and competence of you and your entire staff during the hunt. The equipment was top notch and all of your staff were very professional, friendly and worked very well together. The food was great both quantity and quality. Lee was an outstanding guide, a real pleasure to be with in our spike camp during the hunt. Last but not least your territory is second to none for producing excellent Brown Bear. Hope to hunt with you and your outfit again in the near future. 

Best regards,
