Kodiak Brown Bear Hunting, Alaska.
Kodiak Brown Bear Hunting, Alaska
Hunting Season: April 20th – May 10th October 25th – November 3rd
A hunt in Alaska is an experience that lives beyond expectations, and a trip that every sportsman must try at least once, on some level. As the only state to readily hand out licenses for Brown bear it is the obvious state of choice for any bear hunter. Alaska is the only state to house all 3 North American bear species (black bear, brown bear & polar bear). To be able to conduct that hunt on Kodiak island, a location World famous for it’s quantity and size of bears, makes this hunt, in our opinion, the best bear hunt in the World.
The Kodiak brown bear is famous for being the largest in the World, and it is not uncommon to harvest bears of 10ft.
We can arrange hunting in either Spring or Fall for Kodiak bear, with each having it’s own advantages. Bears are generally more active in Spring but their coat tends to be in worse condition with more rubs. In the autumn however, the bear will generally be larger as he has been feeding throughout the summer and will have a thicker coat.
You will be hunting on Kodiak island so should expect to harvest bear of considerable size. It is normal to harvest bears of 9ft but not uncommon to harvest bears of 10ft+, so you truly will be hunting in the best location for bears anywhere on the planet. With such a high population density you should expect to see a number of bears giving you a choice to select your perfect trophy. The hunters biggest enemy anywhere is the weather, an nowhere is that truer than on Kodiak island. The island is a rainforest and receives 70 inches of snow and 70 inches of rain per year, so hunters must be prepared for wet conditions. However on the good weather days, the Island is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and provides one of the most incredible backdrops that can be found on any hunt.
Hunting will either be conducted from the comforts of our lodge or from spike tents, depending on the hunters physical ability, preference and draw units. Kodiak is a stunning location for any hunt and particularly when you are hunting the brown bears, you are stepping into the World of the lucky few. A Kodiak brown bear hunt is a once in a lifetime hunting opportunity.
Alaska is known for its changing and unpredictable weather and Kodiak Island is reknowned for being beautiful, but wet, so please be prepared for rain.
