This is a premier bear hunt conducted in one of Southwest Alaska's most pristine and wild hunting regions. I have been guiding in the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge since 1987. This exclusive use Federal Refuge area and Native Private Lands Area is remote and beautiful with an excellent bear population.
The areas in which we hunt in this location are conducive to "spot and stalk" hunting. With open rolling tundra hills laced with blueberry, cranberry and crowberry brush and alder covered mountainsides. Low in the valleys the salmon spawn in small streams. These resources provide a rich abundance of food for the bears in this ideal habitat.
Hunting is done by glassing from vantage points. When a good is spotted the stalk begins. Bears are typically viewed each day. A hunter wishing to harvest a trophy needs to be in good physical condition in order to hike and capitalize on any opportunity a large bear presents.
A hunter in reasonably good physical condition should have opportunities to see and stalk large make bears in the 8'6" to 10' squared size range.
Lightweight and minimalistic, these hunts are true down to basics hunts. The camps are comfortable but simple. It consists of a 10'x10' Dome tents with cots, a 4'x7' gear tent, a cook stove and lantern. Due to remoteness of these camps, aircraft logistics, and "no impact" camp restrictions we go into these areas as light as possible.
As with all of our hunting expeditions the hunt is conducted 1x1. A 100% mental and physical effort by the hunter is required on this hunt.
