2017 Alaska Hunting

Spring Brown Bear hunts at 12-days for $17,000. Combination Brown and Black Bear is for 14-days for $19,000.
We have an 80% average success rate on our Brown Bear hunts.
100% success rate on Goat hunts for three years running.

Success rate for all Brown Bear and Goat hunts as 100% in 2015 and in 2014 we were 100% on goats and 90% on Brown Bears because one bear hunter was rained-out.

Location is on the mainland of northern Southeast Alaska, 90 miles west of Juneau, at a small community called Haines, where I have lived year-round since 1976. My clients first fly to Juneau and then either take a commuter flight to Haines, or ride the Alaska State Ferry for 4.5 hours. The price of a one-way trip on the flight is about $140. The ferry ticket is $40.

Clients upon arrival are then transported to our Home-Base which is on the road-system 26 miles from Haines. We provide a comfortable guest cabin with wifi service, and all lodging, food and hunt-related transportation is included in the contracted hunt price. You will have no financial surprises if you book a hunt with us.

Sub-unit 1-D is a game-rich location, so all Brown Bear and Mt. Goat tags are over the counter hunts. There are no lengthy, uncertain draw-hunts in my Guide-Use area, which is immediately adjacent to the largest protected wilderness area on earth.

Fall Brown Bear and Black Bear:
The early to mid-fall run of Chum, Sockeye and Coho salmon and the associated mild weather make this hunt prime. Hunt strategy will range from spot & stalk and tree stands to bank sitting and pop-up blinds. My policy of one hunter at a time is generally adhered to when brown bear hunting, as the added noise, scent and associated interference of a second hunter will only spoil the chances of success for everyone, unless they are close hunting partners. Most fall brown bears will be taken during the last light of the day or by moon light. This hunt can be booked as a rifle or archery hunt.

Extremely large Brown Bears in Southeast Alaska are not normally as abundant as at Kodiak Island or the Alaska Peninsula. However, some of the largest bears ever taken in Southeast Alaska were taken from my hunt area by my clients. Hunters who have patience, and sometimes simple luck, have harvested brown bears that square 9-feet plus. To-date the largest bear my clients have taken squared 9.8 feet; which is a true measurement – no fudging. It may have gotten bigger by the time it was mounted (They often do) Skull sizes at Haines have exceed 28 inches, but a large bear is anything over 24.5 inches.

Our abundant black bear population contains a very high percentage of color-phase bears. The majority of fall black bears will be above 1,500 feet of elevation, and they are very active during daylight hours.

Access to our hunt area can range from 4-wheel drive to airboat, canoe and foot. All fall and winter hunts can include an incidental wolf-kill with a $1,500 kill-fee. We do not extend the hunt beyond the taking of the primary animal to accommodate a wolf hunt unless special arrangements are agreed on.

Rifles need to have a scope with a wide objective lens to gather a lot of light, and an illuminated reticle is recommended. At the very least, the scope needs to have heavy duplex cross-hairs.

Archers should have bows equipped with tritium sight-pins, or some sort of illuminated-pin system. Arrows should have glowing nocks.

Spring Black Bear and Brown Bear Hunts:

Spring hunts are my personal favorite because of long daylight hours and mild weather conditions. Most spring bear hunts can be booked as combination Black Bear and Brown Bear hunts.

We often hunt the favorite spring feeding areas of bears, which include horsetail ferns in open areas between shrub alder clumps and exposed snow slides, which are favorite places for bears to forage for winter-kill mountain goats. In some instances we may take a stand along game trails and open river bottoms, or we may opt to utilize spot and stalk methods on the mountainsides immediately above camp. Spring bears are generally active throughout all daylight hours, with peak hunting activity in the late evening, often via moonlight.

Being situated at a high vantage point with an electronic predator call and a remote speaker located at a lower elevation promises expanded opportunities to observe and judge predatory spring bears as they travel hundreds of yards to locate the sound of a bear cub in distress or the plaintive call of a moose calf.

A particular early-spring hunt takes place where Brown Bears that have just emerged from hibernation walk right past one of my privately owned cabins while in rout to the first green-up food source of the year.

Access and camp facilities will be similar to those of the fall hunts. During a portion of any hunt we may use one of five remote hunting cabins as well as a tent camp, or hunt directly from my 1923 homestead log cabin.

We hold leases and/or permits with the following agencies to operate on public lands. At this time the fees for operating on these lands are included in the stated hunt-fee: Alaska State Parks: State of Alaska.

Mountain Goat Hunting:

Early-Fall Mountaun Goat hunting, After 40 years of living and hunting in the Haines area, 26 of which have been as a registered or Master Guide, I have learned the best locations and routes for hunting mountain goats. I guide hunts in locations which minimize the danger of climbs that is often associated with goat hunting. An average hunter in good physical condition with no prior mountain-climbing experience can generally make these hunts. However, they are physically demanding, so conditioning prior to the hunt is highly recommended. A high-quality full-sized pack of at least 6,500 cubic inches capacity is essential. Knee-length gaiters and stiff-soled, specialized climbing-boots that are crampon- compatible are also essential to the safety and success of your hunt. Do not scrimp on boot or equipment quality, and stay in contact with us regarding your selections.

Late-fall Mountain Goat hunting often involve a canoe, airboat or snow-machine supported hunt in snow conditions while based from a cabin and/or winter tent camp at river level, and one day of scheduled time is occasionally used to access the camp areas. After that goats may be spotted quite low above the river, sometimes less than 500 feet above camp. However, while utilizing mountaineering crampons, we sometimes climb to 1,000 feet or higher if the goats remain at elevation due to unseasonably light-snow conditions or other factors, such as marauding wolves. It is a spot and stalk hunt, usually returning to camp at night. Goats are very abundant, and many are taken with a rifle from river level. At times we may bring a whole goat down-river in my canoe, boat or snow-sled. This hunt is a premier hunt that produces a world class trophy; long beards and long-haired capes and pantaloons. Prime time for this low elevation hunt is November through December. During September and October we usually climb to higher elevations. Those earlier-season hunts can sometimes be accessed from the road system, or a boat drop-off along the saltwater shoreline. My hunters have taken numerous Billy Goats that qualify for the Boone and Crocket record books.

* A hunter should be well versed in up-hill-down-hill angle shooting. Trophy pelage will be winter-prime.

Over many years of hunting gigantic Billy Goats, claims of harvesting 400 pound Mountain Goats were dismissed by biologists... until the Alaska Department of Fish and Game recently instigated a Mountain Goat survey in which they darted and weighed several animals within our permitted Guide Use Area. Imagine their surprise when they discovered that the mid-summer weight of some Billy Goats exceeded 390 pounds. Some goats harvested fall-weight goats that exceeded 420 pounds.
