Thread: Weekend Brown Bear Hunt

  1. #1

    Default Weekend Brown Bear Hunt

    I am looking to do a brown bear hunt this weekend with a friend. I was thinking, on the road system leaving from anchorage. I do have a jon with a jet or a cataraft if those may be better options. Any ideas or helpfull tips would be appreciated. I was originally thinking the Denali highway, Glennallen area, or Paxson Summit Lake area but am open to any ideas. Can anyone help me out on this one?

    Default Try Paxon Lake

    Hi, I have seen sevral grizzlys on the west side of the lake. Launch at the BLM campground, cross to the other side then work that shoreline. Have fun and good luck.

    The plan now looks like spot on the Denali Highway and drag the boat up to Paxson then maybe cruise the lake on Sunday.

    There are a few on Baldi as well... one BIG one for sure... elusive *******...

    If you get up out of the treeline, there are quite a few good glassing spots... but I see most of his tracks right around the tree line...

    It took me a while to report back, but that may be because I had little to report. No bear spotted, but lots of caribou to watch and some spruce grouse along the way.

    Nice sunny day today so I take a ride to Cooper Landing looking for Blackies. Saw Sheep and Goats but no Bear. Returning to Soldotna I decide to slip into Jim's landing. Watched for a while and just as I'm leaving a Brown Bear swims across to my side just upstream from the take out. He lingers close to shore then goes in the woods. I decide he may cross the highway so I go park at the toilet pullouts just east of jim's landing. I get out of the truck and see movement. He then walks into that little back water just before the turnoff to jim's. He finally caught a fish and I watched him for 5/6 minutes. Back in the woods. Then movement. Out he comes and leisurely walks across the highway. I had to stop 2 cars and one guy was shaking when i walked up to his car. Was that a grizzly he asked? Wow, what a sight. So, being at the right place at the right time pays off.
