You will travel to Homer via Anchorage and then be transported to the hunt area, by means of the vessel you will stay aboard or by float plane. Hunting license and tags may be purchased in Homer and there are a number of hotels available for accommodation should your hunt schedule require it.
Our black bear hunts take place in the outer coastal areas of the Kenai Peninsula. This area has many deep reaching bays which provide a great deal of coastline to be hunted. Accessing these areas via boat allows us the mobility we need to hunt new country each day if needed.
During the spring season, many of the black bears are found in the low lying tidal flats and south facing hillsides where the first spring forage appears. Thus usually being fairly easy to spot and relatively easy to access to put on a stalk.
You will be staying aboard a 43’ delta and shuttled to shore via a powered zodiac raft.
All hunts are conducted 2 on 1 unless the whole boat has been booked for the purpose of ensuring 1 on 1 guided service.
As this is a fully guided hunt, bait stations can be utilized to ensure a greater chance of successfully securing your trophy bear.
The long days of May and early June allow a more leisurely approach to the hunt and provide some opportunity for saltwater fishing for pacific halibut and rock fish.
A minimum of 2 hunters are required for a booking unless other arrangements are made.
2 on 1 – 7day hunt $6,500* per hunter.
