Grizzly Bear Hunts
Our hunting areas are home to the world’s largest grizzly bears!
Since 2002, our clients have taken numerous high-scoring Grizzly Bear. We hunt in an area with the largest Grizzlies in North America. Just Southeast of Nome, Alaska, along the Norton Sound Coast, our hunts begin when the ice goes out in early May and Bears begin to water the beaches in search of food and mates.
What to Expect:
Our camps consist of wall tents with wood burning stoves. The weather is very unpredictable and medium to heavy snowfall may occur during each hunt with temperatures ranging from -20ºF to 70ºF. Grizzly bears are dangerous. Hunter should be prepared for an exciting hunt!
3 (11 Day) Hunts are available:
May 25 – June 4
One grizzly bear can be taken per year in each of our areas.
Boats are used for our May and August hunts. The terrain is rugged, so hunters should be in good physical condition.
Grizzly bears are hunted in three areas; the Koyukuk National Wildlife Refuge (KNWR), Western Alaska, and near Unalakleet, Alaska.
