My brother from Wyoming is itching real bad to get him a Griz or Brown bear. We have been discussing putting together a trip for next year. The biggest hurdle that I have is scouting areas.
Scouting is pretty tough without actually going on a hunt. I do not have access to planes unless I charter them. My uncle has a 18 foot jetboat and I have a zodiac prop....
My first idea is to take a hop in from Coldfoot into the Brooks to hunt caribou and catch Griz on the gutpiles. I am looking for general thoughts from people as to how successful for Griz this might be????
A float hunt is also a possibility and I will probably hire AOD or Pristine Ventures for planning help.
There is the AK pennisula too....
Fall or spring probably doesn't matter, but a good hide is a must.
Any ideas or general thoughts to share?
