Spring Brown Bear
Our guides hunt spring brown bears from April 1 and continue through the end of May. Hunting brown bears at this time of year is both exciting and beautiful. Snow covered mountains, glaciers, and Alaska's grandeur is booming in the spring when the day light hours are long and pristine white landscape surrounds you.
If a single species guided brown bear hunt is your focus, we recommend the spring hunt. For these hunts we travel from our meeting point to one of our camps in a ski-equipped airplane. From there we spot and stalk feeding bears or watch den areas.
Brown bears come out of the dens looking for food after winter hibernation when the snow is still on the ground. Bears are easier to spot because the ground is white and the leaves and vegetation have not yet begun to grow.
Bear hunters should be in good physical condition and be able to walk several miles on snowshoes and do some moderate uphill hiking. For details please call us and we would be happy to discuss these details with you.
