Alaska Brown Bear Hunting
Few hunts can match the thrill of Alaska brown bear hunting. These enormous predators are possibly the most hard-to-kill game animals native to North America, but their pelts are incomparable trophies.
Alaskan brown bear hunting trips are not all created equal. There are three types of brown bear in this state: Kodiak (found on Kodiak Island), brown bear (found on the coast, especially on the Alaskan Peninsula), and grizzly (found in the inland). The bigger varieties are generally more expensive to hunt.
Kodiaks are a distinct subspecies and are the largest brown bears in existence—in fact, the largest Kodiaks match the size of the largest polar bears, tying them for the positions of largest bear and largest land predator in the world. Males usually weigh at least 800 pounds and can weigh as much as 1,500 when they are preparing for the winter. They can reach lengths of over ten feet.
Coastal brown bears can grow to be nearly as impressive as Kodiaks, but they tend to be somewhat smaller. They reach this large size thanks to the abundance of salmon along the coastline. The inland grizzlies are scientifically the exact same as their coastal cousins, but they are smaller due to the lack of such an easy food source. Still, the males tend to be at least six and a half feet long and weigh over 400 pounds
All brown bears have a large shoulder hump and fairly straight claws, which, along with their size, are better indications of a brown bear than coat color (brown bears can be any color from blond to a deep brown that’s almost black, while some black bears can be brown or even near-red). They are not as well-adapted to climbing trees as black bears, but they are certainly capable of it. They are also excellent sprinters and can chase down caribou and moose.
Alaskan brown bear hunting is carefully regulated in order to protect this important species. Hunters must be careful not to shoot cubs or mother bears. The best practice is to pursue only the largest males—you’ll be staying safely within legal bounds and getting the best trophy possible as well. If you’re an out-of-state hunter, you must be accompanied by a guide or an Alaskan relative. Global Sporting Safaris can put you in touch with some of the best guides in the state.
It’s recommended that you use the most powerful rifle you can comfortably and effectively use—going up to .50 caliber isn’t a bad idea if you can handle the recoil. Hunting style varies depending on location, guide, and the type of bear you’re pursuing, but the most popular options are spotting or still hunting along salmon runs.
