Now You Can Hunt Alaska Black Bear at a Sensible Price!
We offer excellent self-guided Alaskan Black bear hunting. Multiple bear sightings in the same area is not uncommon. We hunt bears only from the end of April to the end of May – when they are on the beach eating the salt grass. That way you’ll have the best possible opportunity to harvest an exceptional bear.
How do we hunt black bears?
When we hunt bears we spot and stalk from an 18 ft Lund boat. You drive your boat at low speed through the channels, coves and cuts and glass. You’ll be looking for what looks like a big piece of coal on the beach. That is when you check your wind, because bears have excellent smell. Then you start your stalk.
Does the area have a lot of black bears?
In the lodge area, there is 1 bear per 3.5 miles which is a lot of bears for an area. This is not only a very exciting hunt, but a true Alaskan adventure.
