It is here on this pristine island where the legendary bears still thrive in a forage rich environment, feeding and reaching massive proportions. A mature male Kodiak brown bear can attain an overall standing height in excess of eleven feet with ten-foot bears being quite common.
This hunt begins with a scenic float plane charter from the Kodiak airport to a modern lodge situated in a secluded bay some thirty air miles to the south. Depending on hunting conditions and bear sightings, either the lodge or a remote spike camp will be home for this ten-day hunt.
Both spring and fall hunts are available with hunting methods being very similar although spring hunts can demand much more physical exertion. Fall hunts call for classing at much lower elevations as the big bears scour the salmon streams and estuaries for food in preparation for hibernation.
Your host for this hunt is a registered master guide who has lived on and hunted Kodiak Island for nearly thirty years. His knowledge of the hunt area, terrain and habits of these big bears will afford you the hunting experience of a lifetime. Spring seasons run from mid-April through mid-May with the fall hunt being much shorter from late-October to early-November. Brown bear tags for Kodiak Island are issued only through competitive drawings. Although draw success is generally good, it is not guaranteed.
