Alaska Baited Bear Hunt
Nearly 100% for both brown bears and black bears. Take two additional black bears for a trophy fee!
The ability to hunt brown bears over bait in Alaska has recently been allowed and is turning out to be quite the treat! This outfitter says that the bears in many cases, have taken over their black bear baits making the brown bears somewhat of a nuisance… a welcomed nuisance however.
With near 100% for this Alaska combo bear hunt you can get the best of both worlds with Alaska black bears in all different color phases, and brown bears with chocolate to almost a white colored fur. An Alaska brown bear hunt is a top five dream hunt for most hunters, and this one is a ton of fun!
Hunt Brown Bears and Black Bears over the same bait!
- Hunt brown bear AND black bear over bait.
- Success rates for brown bears are very high, with most hunters getting shot opportunities.
- Success for black bears has so far been amazing with a 100% opportunity rate!
- Brown bears can get up to 9 feet, with skulls that measure 26 inches, but 7-8 feet is average.
- Hunts are 10 days with the 11th day saved for travel out of the cabin.
- Enjoy fishing for Sockeye Salmon during the day.
The relaxed schedule is also what sets this bear hunt aside.
Wake up late as you will be hunting almost until midnight most nights. After you wake up enjoy some Sockeye salmon fishing before you hit the stands for the rest of the day.
This outfitter says that this has been one of there most reliable experiences over the last five years. So far, all of our hunters that went for either brown bear or black bear have had shots! All hunters that wanted to harvest a black bear had the opportunity to harvest last year. Among those bears were several beautiful color-phase bears. This outfitter had about 30 baits and about 200 black bears and 80 brown bears that were visiting these baits.

- Cash for tips (A tip is a reward for a job well done. It is considered customary in the guiding industry as it is in the restaurant industry. Please tip on the effort of your guide, not necessarily the quality of your trophy. A tip of 10% is standard for a good job, slightly less for a satisfactory job. If you feel your guide has done a very poor job, do not tip them and discuss it with your outfitter. Please feel free to openly discuss tipping with your guide. Most guides use the best equipment they can afford at their income level. Cash is generally preferred but if you want to use an item (rifle, binoculars, clothing etc) as a tip or portion of a tip please discuss it with your guide.
