Alaska Black Bear Hunting
Highly successful, unguided Alaska black bear hunting is a great Alaskan experience for both bow hunters and riflemen. Gathering a group of friends or making this a family outing- either way, you are sure to have a memorable time for you and your group. At Bob’s Trophy Charters, as a small outfitter, we can cater to each group we take out hunting for that added personal attention.
Using our 50’ boat, the Nauti-Lady, we travel out of Homer about 4 hours to some prime hunting grounds. You’ll ride around the islands by boat hunting for the big black bear of your choice. Spring bears, just out of hibernation, feed along the shore and can be seen from the boat. Once you have made your selection from the boat, we can put you ashore in a rigid hull inflatable, engine driven naiad or zodiac. Once ashore, you should have your bear in short order since these bears do not have predators from the sea and pay little attention to boats. At this time of the year, the bears sport their thickest, un-rubbed coat which is especially nice for making the pelt into a bear rug. We have averaged 200 – 450 lb. bears that squared up to 6 1/2 feet. Bear meat is good to eat. For those who don’t want to mingle with the bears, you can hunt from the boat.
Hunting by boat makes it confortable since the boat is a safe dry place to eat and sleep. While on the hunt, we will overnight you in a beautiful cove while the captain and crew prepare all your meals and cook for you in a family type atmosphere.
Another benefit to hunting by boat is that we offer a couple days of fishing as well. Plan on taking home the fish you catch also. What a great and varied experience to fish, relax and hunt in pristine surroundings with your friends or family and a friendly crew.
Sportsmen fly into Anchorage and then usually take a commuter down to Homer. We put you up for the night before the trip in one of our rooms above the office where we can help to get you ready for the next morning’s departure. Upon your return, we can assist you in finding a local taxidermist or processor for the care of your hide and meat.
