Brown Bear Hunting on Afognak Island in Alaska

There aren’t many hunts like this one! To be able to hunt Kodiak brown bears from a lodge is a rare experience that few get to enjoy.  Afognak Island has a high population of brown bears and your guides know every nook and cranny.

If you you don’t like the idea of hiking to a high spot and glassing all day for bears, don’t worry. You’ll be cruising the shores with a boat. Their warm, comfortable cabin-cruisers are an amazing way to explore the shores of Afognak Island in search of a giant boar. You’ll spot tons of wildlife and even assorted marine-mammals.

  • You’ll be hunting North Afognak Island, near Kodiak Island.
  • Our hunters have had a 90% success rate on this Alaska bear hunt on Afognak Island.
  • Archery hunters also enjoy high success on this hunt.
  • Add a Sitka blacktail to your bear hunt.
  • Spring and Fall dates are available.
  • This is a draw hunt, and you must apply in November. We can help.
