Our spring Brown Bear hunts are conducted within Adirmalty Island and the Kootznoowoo Wilderness area of the Tongass National Forest. We have been fortunate to be permitted to operate in this extraordinary area since 1993. 


Admiralty Island is my favorite place in the spring. The rich abundance of marine life, beautiful rugged mountains and one of the highest densities of Brown Bears in the world make it an exciting hunting location. 


One of the things which I really enjoy about the spring hunts on Admiralty Island is the diversity of wildlife we see each day. We commonly see humpback whales, orca whales, porpoise, sea lions, sea otters, blacktail deer, mink and dozens of other wildlife and waterfowl species. 


We hunt the coast of the island from our land based camp using Zodiac boats. Hunters of all physical abilities can enjoy this hunt.


Brown Bears in this area average 8' - 9' foot squared. The spring bears have luxurious hair and is truly magnificent. These bears usually are a dark brown color with gold tips. 


Success rates in the past has been very good. As with any hunt success changes annually due to varying factors such as weather and winds of that season.  


Our land based camp consists of a wall tent for cooking and eating and large dome tents with cotzs for sleeping. Camp is very comfortable and located in an idyllic setting on a small spit of land between a salt water cove and a freshwater creek surrounded by huge old growth spruce, hemlock and fir trees. 


Our dining fare is excellent, you can expect to gain weight.
