Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge

Brown Bear

The Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos) is the smaller inland cousin of the Brown Bear.  The Grizzly’s in my area are mountain dwellers in the true sense.  Most bears that we take are in the 6 ½ to 7 ½ foot range.  Due to the lack of protein and very short growing season, these Grizzly Bears are not able to reach the massive size of the bears in southern parts of the state.  These bears depend mainly on berries, roots, ground squirrels and the occasional dead caribou for food.   They are plentiful yet can be challenging to hunt. Like the Brown Bear, they have an amazing sense of smell and surprisingly acute eye sight.  An Arctic Grizzly is a truly beautiful animal that you will have to see to fully appreciate.

Hunt method for Grizzly is almost all spot and stalk.  We also hike up and down the valleys looking for them in areas where the habitat is ideal for bears.  The best way is to sit on a hill overlooking a small valley with plenty of berry bushes and watch for bears.  Caribou may be taken on a trophy fee basis. Dall Sheep may also be added.
