Black Bear Hunts and Brown Bear Hunts
Combination hunts for Brown and Black bears are available on Spring or Fall hunts. Sitka Deer and Wolf are available in the fall, usually in conjunction with Bears.
Brown Bear Hunts – Black Bear Hunts
In the huge old growth rain forests of southeastern Alaska, brown and black bear roam, feeding on salmon from the hundreds of small streams and rivers, or munching on sedge in the misty grass flats at the forest's edge. With their population density far surpassing any other area in North America, these bears provide a wonderfully unique and exciting personal hunting experience found only in southeastern Alaska's wilderness.
We, along with a few well chosen assistant guides, personally guide our clients on all bear hunts. Brown bear hunts are one to one. Black bear hunts are generally two to one.
Spring Bear Hunts
In spring, we'll hunt bears on remote beaches and grass flats from our 16 foot boats or from shore. On a ten-day hunt in spring you can expect to see 20 to 30 brown bears. we commonly see many more black bears in the spring or fall.
Fall Bear Hunts
In fall, we hunt on small creeks teaming with salmon, from the mouths to a half-mile upstream. Walking is generally very easy, and with plenty of action fairly close, these hunts are usually very exciting. A typical shot on a spring hunt is 100 to 150 yards; fall distances are 25 to 100 yards. On a ten-day hunt in fall you can expect to see 20 to 30 brown bears.
We hunt separate islands for brown and black bears in Southeast Alaska, as the two species do not share habitats. For brown bears, we hunt in Game Management Unit 4, and for black bears, Game Management Units 1 & 3.
On Fall and early Spring black bear hunts it is not uncommon to see wolves, so you may have a chance for a wolf as well. You'll also see abundant sea life and beautiful country on your trip. Come and join us for an exciting and unique hunt.
Most bookings are made a year or more in advance. Contact us now and reserve the hunt you desire. We look forward to having you onboard!
We at Parker Guide Service provide a premier hunting experience aboard our new 80' custom luxury yacht Alaskan Harvest. All bear hunts are conducted from our full-service "floating lodge." Depending on your booking, you'll start your hunt from one of these towns (Petersburg, Juneau or Sitka) and fly in a sea plane to the yacht. We'll anchor in a quiet, secluded cove or bay and use our seaworthy 16 foot aluminum boats to reach our hunting areas each day, returning each evening to the yacht.
Our bear hunting is unsurpassed by any in North America. Our success rate remains very high with nearly 100% opportunity, which is our goal for you.
We've conducted some amazing hunts over the years.
