The black bear population is very high and
trophy quality is excellent in the area I hunt.
You will be able to look over several bears and
be selective. Bears in the 6 ½ to 8 foot range
with 18 to 21 inch skulls can be expected.
On the spring hunts we cruise the coastline in a
17' aluminum skiff glassing for bears. Once a
bear is sighted we try to determine size and
quality, then go to the beach and begin a stalk.
During the fall hunts the bears are
concentrated on salmon streams. On these
hunts we spend our time hunting on the
streams looking for feeding bears. We get
some very exciting close range action.
Both hunts are very successful. The spring
hunts are less strenuous than the fall hunts
because there is less walking involved.
The majority of my black bear hunts take place
on Kupreanof and Mitkof Islands in Game
