Our spring brown bear hunts take place during the month of April when bears are just emerging from their winter dens. For this hunt we will base out of my private cabin amongst the foothills of the Alaska Range. Each day we will ride snowmobiles through some of the most breath taking country Alaska has to offer in search of prime spring bears. Every evening I will load a spike camp in the plane and go scouting for bears. Once the right bear is located I will decide to either set up a spike camp in the nearest most suitable landing spot, or choose to return the next day with snowmobiles from the cabin. We can not hunt the same day that we fly, so if the area cannot be reached with snowmobiles we will be required to stay in a spike camp and hunt off snowshoes the following day. For the hunt you will fly into Anchorage Alaska where I will pick you up at the airport or hotel depending on what time your flight arrives. We will then drive to my home on an airstrip in Wasilla Alaska. I will sell you a hunting license and bear tag and do necessary paperwork for the hunt. We will also go through your equipment and repack (leave hard gun case and suitcases at my home) for the super cub flight to my cabin. At the cabin we will shoot your rifle and load up a spike camp and head out in search of a big bear. These hunts are 8 days of actual hunting but will typically be 10-12 in duration with travel days on each end. FOR EXAMPLE: If your hunt dates are April 5-12, please fly into Anchorage on April 3rd or morning of the 4th. I recommend an open ended ticket for your return flight, or a departure of 2 days after the scheduled hunt. This hunt has produced some very large bears for us in the past including a few large enough to make B&C. 24 out of the last 25 hunters have harvested a brown bear on this hunt! The average bear for this hunt is around 8.5-9 feet with a 25″ Skull, and the largest we have killed had an Official B&C score of 28 3/16″. Not included in the price of the hunt are: hunting license, brown bear tag, airfare to and from Anchorage, hotel before and after hunt if necessary, shipping of trophy home, and gratuity.
All bush flights are included in the price of hunt! Price of Hunt is $14,000.
