Spring Brown Bear Hunts in the Alaska Wilderness Cold Bay Area

Our Spring Brown Bear hunts runs May 10-25 of even numbered years. 2020, 2022 etc.
We run two hunts back to back. It is also possible to book the entire season.

You will be hunting in Alaska's Cold Bay and Izembek Refuge area, where we have two exclusive guide concessions. Historically this is one of the very best areas for trophy Brown Bear in the world.

We hunt these big brown bears by the spot and stalk method as they emerge from the den. In the spring their coats are thick with winter hair. It is common to watch big males following sows for the purpose of breeding.

There may be time and opportunity to pursue other game in this remote wilderness region. Wolves are prevalent in the area. There is often a good run of Steelhead Trout.

Spike Camps

Established campsites are in key positions that have been proven over the past 40 years. Each camp consists of 2 tents – 2 Sturdy Expedition Grade Tents: 1 for cooking and relaxing and 1 for sleeping and gear storage – cots, pads, warm sleeping bags, tables, chairs, lanterns, heaters and lots of good food along with a skilled and personable guide. Satellite phones are in each camp and each guide is on a check-in schedule with the base camp. Camps are re-supplied every few days.

Licenses & Tags

You must purchase a hunting license and a Brown Bear tag. You can do that online with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Wolves are also prevalent in the area. It is no longer required to purchase a wolf tag in GMU 9D.

If time allows during your hunt you may get the opportunity to fish in the Alaska wilderness. There is no guarantee that there will be time to fish on your trip. However, if you hope to fish, a fishing license is required.
