    Default brown bear hunt

    Thinking about a coastal brown bear hunt with an outfitter that hunts north of Prince William Sound in the Chugach Moutain Range. Open to any suggestions of someone who has been there. Spring or fall (why) and what months in either hunts

    north of prince william sound in the mtns there are very very few coastal brown bears, most are on the east side of prince william, if you are actually in the mtns most would not consider those bears coastal browns....even though they are closer to the coast than most. they are in effect grizzlies if one can tell the diff. easier to bump up a price tag if you call them brown though...
    more specific where you'll be hunting or who with and you might get some more information that would be specific.

    Welcome to the forum from an ex N.H. resident. I concur with "dvarmit " You need to talk with Jake Jefferson forum name BRWNBR
    He can hunt the BIG Kodiak bear and if a fall hunt you might combine Blacktail Deer and or MT.Goats

    Thanks for the reply. Thats the kind of info I am looking for. The outfitter is Robert Hardy at ak-bearhunting.com. I've talked to a couple references and they both gave him a A+. One shot a 9 1/2 footer

    As others have said, Jake (BRWNBR) would be someone I wouldn't hesitate to put on a short list of folks who have the credentials and the abilities in regards to the hunt you are seeking.

    Best of luck.

    Look into hunting Hinchinbrook or Montague Island if you want to go somewhere in Prince William Sound.

    This picture isn't mine, but this internet legend was taken on Hinchinbrook:

    Ordinarily they're not that big but there's a lot of them and PWS is so epic. If you're coming to visit from outside, I'd use any excuse to go there.
