                       SPRING BROWN BEAR - ADMIRALTY ISLAND                       

Admiralty Island is a beautiful, rugged, and moutainous island in the Alaskan Aleutian Islands chain. It is one of my favorite places to hunt in the spring with one of the highest densities of brown bear in the world. Bear size on the island generally averages 8-9 feet squared and they are typically a dark brown color with light gold tips. The spring hair is long and luxurious and makes a truly magnificent trophy.

While hunting on the island you will see very diverse wildlife. It is common to see humpback whales, orca whales, sea lions, seals, porpoises, black tail deer, otter, mink, and dozens of waterfowl species. Camp consists of wall tentfor cooking and large dome tents with cots for sleeping. The camp is very comfortable and located in an idyllic setting under huge, old growth spruce, hemlock, and fir trees. It sits on a small spit of land between a saltwater cove and a freshwater creek. The dining fare is excellent; you can expect to gain some weight on this hunt.

We will hunt the coast which the bears frequent. They are foraging the coastline for the first fresh green grasses, ferns, and buds of the spring. They will also travel the coast in search of a sow's scent path as this is the beginning of their breeding season. Hunters of all physical abilities are welcome to enjoy this hunt.
