Spring Brown Bear Hunt Tour
Posted by Eddie Baker on 04/13/2014
After a long, cold and dark winter spring has finally arrived on the last frontier. For many Alaskans the spring bear hunt is the first chance for fresh meat since the onset of winter. For sport hunters there is a short window in the spring to hunt Alaska brown bears, sometimes called Kodiak or Grizzlies. Some of the largest brown bears in the world are native to Alaska. Hunting in Alaska,whether for subsistence or trophy hunting. Is highly regulated by the State of Alaska and enforced by the Alaska State Troopers. The state is divided into 26 Game Management Units with regulations specific to each unit.Guide /Outfitters are licenced to operate in a specific area of a specific unit. A typical trophy hunt will last for 7 to 15 days at a cost of $12,000 to $30,000.A hunt will usually begin with the hunter making his way to an airport within the guide/outfitters area and be transported from there, via bush plane or boat to a remote camp in the hunting area. The remote camps range from tents to cabins to luxury lodges in some areas. Under Alaska regulations a hunter cannot leave any hide or meat from a kill in the bush. If the hunter doesn't want the meat the guide can arrange for the meat to be given to someone in need. The minimum fine for leaving meat in the bush is $10,000.
If you do not have the Kodiak, you are free to substitue with another.
