About 10 years ago me and 3 hunting buddies did a DIY handgun hunt for black bear on Prince of Whales Island and had a great and successful hunt. I was lucky enough to take a nice size black bear with my handgun. I am looking to do another black bear hunt (would prefer to hunt grizzly or brown bear, but can't afford it), but want to take my son this time. I would like to have a better success ratio so I would like to do a guided hunt. Also, can't decide between an inland hunt or a boat type hunt, where you have access to more hunting area without having to do a lot of hard hiking as I will be 68 tomorrow!
I live in Texas, so don't have a lot of access to good Alaska information. Any suggestions on best area, best guide and which type hunt you prefer and why would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
