Our goal JR Hunting Alaska brown bearis to get you as close as is reasonably possible to the animal and then let you make one well-placed shot. Quite often there will not be enough time for a follow-up shot before the bear disappears into the thick bush so you want to make sure to use enough gun when you get a chance! Alaskan hunting conditions almost always mean "wet" weather so make sure to bring a rifle with a good synthetic or composite stock since the field conditions are plain tough on wood! More big bears are taken in the spring compared to the fall. The trophy bears harvested range from 8 foot squared to nearly 11 foot for the largest boars; we are generally looking for bears over 9 foot. The biggest bear taken in this area squared 11 foot 3 inches! We consider our hunter success to be over 80%, looking for a trophy that will square over 9 foot.
