I am looking for a hunting partner for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. I have a Kodiak brown bear tag (DB250: South Spiridon Bay) for this spring. I already have transportation reservations for a Beaver with Jayhawk Air for April 29-May 14, but my partner had to back out due to work commitments. Now I'm solo. Ideally, I'd like to find a non-hunting partner who would be along for the adventure, but would be willing to consider teaming up for transport with another hunter who also has the DB250 or DB251 tags.
A little about me:
I am 31 years old, am a very ambitious hunter, and am easy to get along with. Hunting is my one true passion. I have taken two brown bears (both bears chose me on goat hunts), therefore I don't intend on taking another unless it is very large. I have taken at least one of every other game species in Alaska, with the exception of muskox. I typically fill the role as the "outfitter" and have organized many successful trips over the past decade. More importantly, everyone has always come home without injury. I hope I don't come across as arrogant as I feel I am actually quite modest. With every trip, I come home with a list of things that could use improvement.
Plans thus far:
The drop-off is scheduled for 8AM on April 29 on the south side of Spiridon Bay. I plan on bringing a 13' inflatable cataraft, motor, Titanium Goat tent w/ woodstove, pack-raft, dry suit, bear fence, and various other gear as needed. I intend on both hunting from shore and backpacking up the Spiridon drainage and floating out via pack raft. I have access to an extra pack raft and dry suit if needed.
For a non-hunting partner, I'd be willing to pay for all transport, food, etc. from Anchorage as I'd really like to have someone along to share the good (and not so good) times on this epic Kodiak trip. I'd also be open to splitting transport costs if someone else has a tag for the Spiridon bay area (DB250 or DB251).
If anyone is interested, please let me know so we can start planning. I am in Anchorage but could meet up anywhere within a few hundred miles of here.
