The local outfitter that we use on Kodiak Island has been in operation since the 80’s and we feel there is no one more experienced or better suited to help you harvest your dream trophy. We feel that he IS the best outfitter to be able to secure you your dream Bear. In the units that we hunt we secure 10ft bears annually, and although Kodiak has a high number of applicants for brown bear, we feel with this outfitter you have the best odds of not only drawing, but also securing a very respectable bear after your hunt. If you are willing to put in the work, then there is no reason that you should not return with the experience and animal of a lifetime. We cannot recommend this hunt highly enough.
We can arrange hunting in either Spring or Fall for Kodiak bear, with each having it’s own advantages. Bears are generally more active in Spring but their coat tends to be in worse condition with more rubs. In the autumn however, the bear will generally be larger as he has been feeding throughout the summer and will have a thicker coat.
You will be hunting on Kodiak island so should expect to harvest bear of considerable size. It is normal to harvest bears of 9ft but not uncommon to harvest bears of 10ft+, so you truly will be hunting in the best location for bears anywhere on the planet. With such a high population density you should expect to see a number of bears giving you a choice to select your perfect trophy. The hunters biggest enemy anywhere is the weather, an nowhere is that truer than on Kodiak island. The island is a rainforest and receives 70 inches of snow and 70 inches of rain per year, so hunters must be prepared for wet conditions. However on the good weather days, the Island is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and provides one of the most incredible backdrops that can be found on any hunt.
