Grizzly Bear Hunting

Hunts conducted in the Kotzebue area are for "Arctic" grizzly. These hunts are conducted north of the Arctic Circle in the fall season. The bear in this region have a wide color variation, with light blonde being the predominant color. Bear in this area typically range from 7' to a little over 9'2". These are spot and stalk, fair chase hunts. Days will be spent glassing mountain sides for bear feeding on blueberries, roaming the tundra, feeding on a recent moose or caribou carcass, or feeding on late run salmon in rivers. This is a great hunt to "combo" with for Caribou!

Fall hunts are spent primarily glassing mountain slopes for bear feeding on berries, or working small streams as the bear feed on salmon. Tags for this hunt are available "over the counter."  With the British Columbia Grizzly Bear Hunting being closed, this is a perfect opportunity for Hunters looking to get in on some amazing hunting to jump on board and get out there hunting in either of our Grizzly areas.  In the 2018 Season, the largest Grizzly to come out was greeen scored at 27 12/16" - which will definitely be one of the top Grizzly Bears of all time!
