Hunt Black Bear


Black bears are abundant during our spring hunt which coincides with the moose and caribou calving seasons. Bears are hunted using bait stations and calling techniques. Grizzly bears can be taken on a trophy fee basis; however grizzlies cannot be taken within ½ mile of a black bear bait station. Up to 3 black bears per person can be taken on one hunt.

Black bears are hunted in two areas, the Alaska Range and the Koyukuk National Wildlife Refuge (KNWR).

We are highly mobile and have found drifting rivers (KNWR hunt only), calling and glassing the travel corridors to be very effective.

The KNWR hunt also offers opportunities to fish for Northern pike, sheefish, Arctic grayling and Arctic char. Arctic graying can be fished on the Alaska Range hunt. Past clients have taken home trophy size fish. Fishing poles are available but serious fisherman should bring their own tackle.

Our mode of transportation is via boat and foot on the KNWR hunt and via ATV and foot on the Alaska Range hunt. Hunters should be in good physical condition.
