Starting on Sundays in May and early June, we are offering 6 day/5 night hunts originating from Homer, Alaska. We recommend our guests arrive in Homer Saturday as the vessel departs Homer Sunday morning for the hunt. This rarely seen area of the Peninsula borders the Kenai Fjords National Park and has spectacular scenery. Shortly after leaving Homer, stretches of shoreline can be glassed for bears. Spring bears are concentrated below the snow line and come down to the beach to eat the early vegetation and low tide debris. The 18 - 20 hours of daylight allows for plenty of fantastic fishing and morning/afternoon/evening bear hunting. The most effective bear hunting is done by cruising the beach in skiffs in the evening and glassing the side hills for bear; once sighted a stalk can be planned. We also spend a lot of time glassing tidal flats from shore. Most bears are taken at or near the beach, keeping packing and climbing to a minimum. This is the most effective way to hunt these bears, which average just over 6 squared and have incredible hides. It just doesn't get any better!
This trip is worth the money for the sightseeing alone! Add in World Class fishing and bear hunting and you have a trip that is an incredible value! Please remember that this is Alaska, and weather can be a factor at times, we are not responsible for delays or conditions related to the weather. You do not have to be a bear hunter to go on this trip, many of our trips consist of men or women who are fishing, rifle or bow hunting, taking wildlife photographs, etc, call and we can discuss the options. Custom trips are available including fall bear hunting in Prince William Sound combined with fresh water salmon fishing and bottom fishing, we also have multiple day fishing trips available for the discriminating angler who wants the best available.
