Admiralty Island offers superb brown bear hunting

Hunt BR4203

Hunts Price per person, hunter:guide ratio
Nine hunt days in May $12,500, 1x1
Travel Hunt comparison
Fly to Juneau, then take a charter to Admiralty Island. Usually the biggest and best-furred bears are seen on the first hunt, but success has not always been 100%, so you get a price break from the second hunt
Hunter success Trophy size
Typically 100%, but on the first hunt sometimes a hunter won't score because fewer bears are out of their dens. In 2008 all six hunters got bears. Admiralty Island bears are typically in the 8 to 9-foot category. This particular hunt typically produces one or two boars over nine feet each year. Average skull size is 24 to 25 inches. Maximum is 27 inches.

This hunt takes place on mountainous and rugged Admiralty Island, which has one of the highest densities of brown bears anywhere. It takes place in May, when hunters commonly see humpback whales, orca whales, sea lions, seals, porpoises, Sitka blacktail deer, otters, mink and dozens of other wildllife species.

Hunter success is usually 100% because there are a lot of bears. The early season typically produces the largest and best-furred bears, but there are not as many to choose from then, so occasionally a hunter might fail to fill his tag. The second hunt has been 100% successful for many years.

Pelts are usually dark brown with light gold tips. Spring bears have long and luxurious pelts.

Camp consists of a wall tent for cooking. Hunters sleep on cots inside large dome tents. Camp is on a small spit of land between a saltwater cove and a freshwater creek among old-growth timber. Meals are included, and the outfitter said that most hunters will gain weight.

You'll travel along the coastline in an inflatable Zodiac boat, where you'll glass for bears foraging on grass, ferns and buds. Since the bears begin rutting in May, you'll sometimes see a bear traveling the coastal shoreline, looking for a sow in heat.

This hunt is not particularly difficult physically, so hunters of all ages and physical abilities can enjoy the trip.

You'll travel to Juneau for this hunt, where most hunters stay overnight before an early morning air charter to the island. Overnight accommodations and the charter are not included in the price of the hunt.
