Bear Hunting

Record trophy bear are harvested every year in Alaska but some of the largest are the Alaska Peninsula Brown Bear.

The Alaska Brown Bear are carefully managed on the Peninsula. Spring hunts are on even numbered years and fall hunts are on odd numbered years.

We offer guided brown bear hunts with some of the most experienced guides the Alaska peninsula has to offer.

“I traveled to Bear River Outfitters on the Alaskan Peninsula with two of my sons in September of 2019. Everything from the time that we left Anchorage till the time we got back there was taken care of by the lodge, including getting the antlers back to North Carolina.

Richard Bryant built a top quality lodge on the shore of the Bearing Sea with all of the amenities that a person would expect to see in an area with paved roads and power lines but he did it in one of the most remote locations in the U.S. and spared no expense doing it. Richard’s attitude and commitment to his customers was very evident in everything that he said and did and I’d recommend him for that reason alone…but the hunting was also excellent!

Because it was their first season, we were some of the first hunters in the lodge but with Richard’s 30 years of experience hunting in the area, and the experienced guides who pretty much grew up there, you’d never have known it was their first season. All five of the moose hunters in the lodge took a really nice bull moose, and for myself and my boys, all three were taken within a stone’s throw of the river so getting them packed out was a breeze.

We saw a lot of wild game including several 100 yard encounters with Brown Bears and had plenty of time to catch Coho and Sockeye Salmon even though the salmon run was over. If you are looking for a lodge where you feel like family and have a great opportunity to fill your tags, you won’t find a better place than Bear River Outfitters near Port Moller Alaska.”
