We have an EXCLUSIVE Noatak National Preserve Federal Concession Area - this means we have 12 Permits that NO OTHER Guide can use or get. We can take you into an area where the Grizzlies are prevalent and growing by the minute - as it's not been hunted hard for years!
So you make the call .... you want to hunt an Exclusive area - or if you're open to our normal Grizzly Hunt areas which can also be combined with a Caribou hunt & we can get you out there and hunting! Both areas are littered with Grizzlies and camps are located between 40 and 140 miles North of Kotzebue - accessed by Bush Planes equipped with Tundra Tires or Float Plane.
If you're looking to do a Guided Grizzly/Caribou Combo Hunt ... we can certainly accommodate you there as well. We have clients year after year who come up and go out on the Grizzly/Caribou Combo's and come out with their trophies. It's an opportunity to be up above the Arctic Circle and bag two (2) on one hunt!
The bear in this region have a wide color variation, with light blonde being the predominant color. Bear in this area typically range from 6.5 to a little over 9 feet. These are spot and stalk, fair chase hunts.
While Arctic Grizzly Bear Hunting your days will be spent glassing mountain sides for bear feeding on blueberries, roaming the tundra, feeding on a recent moose or caribou carcass, or feeding on late run salmon in rivers. In addition to spending your days hunting for your Trophy, you will have a taste for all that Alaska has to offer, the possibility of seeing Moose, Muscox, Wolves, Wolverine, Ptarmigan, Arctic or Red Fox, some fishing opportunities and even the Northern Lights have been known to show up!
Considering Arctic Grizzly & Caribou Hunting? We provide and customize our hunts to meet the needs & wants of our hunters. So, whether you're looking for a Guided Arctic Grizzly Bear Hunts or a Combo Grizzly/Caribou Hunt - we can design the hunts to meet your needs.
This is a great hunt to "combo" with a Caribou hunt! Tags for the Grizzly hunt are available "over the counter" - but do require a Permit which can be obtained at the Kotzebue AKDF&G Office and with the assistance of your Guide. The Caribou Tags are just an over the counter purchase - but do require additional planning if you're adding the Caribou to your Trophy hunt.
These hunts are conducted in the Fall each year beginning the end of August and run through part of September.
