Alaska Brown Bear Hunting On Admiralty Island


Alaska Public Land


Few Alaska brown bear hunting locations can rival Admiralty Island. With a population of three bears to every resident human, you can sign up for this hunt confident of the odds being in your favor. The mountainous Admiralty Island is covered in ancient woods, and the combination of old growth forest and a wet environment (enough rain and snow fall here to qualify it as a temperate rainforest) makes it a paradise for big game and other exotic wildlife. In addition to being one of the best brown bear habitats in the world, it’s home to plentiful Sitka black-tailed deer, mink, otters, bald eagles and more. Whales, orcas, seals, and numerous other marine mammals are frequently spotted in the surrounding waters, and waterfowl are plentiful. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful setting for your hunt. The Hunt Your bear hunting trip will be done by zodiac boat. You’ll cruise the coastline, searching for bears that are foraging among the fresh spring growths. You can sit back, enjoy the ride, and search for a truly trophy-worthy brown bear—just don’t get too distracted by your surroundings! There’s also a good chance of spotting boars at this time of year, as this is when the breeding season begins, leading them to frequent the coasts in order to try to scent a sow’s trail. Thanks to the method of hunting, physical limitations are not an issue here. So long as you can shoot straight and have a little luck on your side, you should be able to bag a bear. The trophy quality of the bears is excellent. Most are eight or nine feet long, and their spring coats are gorgeous, with long, dark-brown hairs ending in golden-blond tips. The Camp With this outfitter, you’ll be staying in a tented camp. Spacious dome tents with cots are provided for sleeping, and there’s a wall tent where the cooking is done. You can count on great food every day. The camp itself is located in a dramatic old growth evergreen forest surrounded by water, with a cove on one side and a creek on the other. It’s a comfortable, peaceful wilderness setting, and you can be sure that you’ll get into the boat rested and ready every morning.
