DB246....Whatcha know about dem parts?
so now that it is june and bear season is over, I am curious to hear how kodiak bear hunting was for the hunters/huntress who hunted the DB246 tag. if you want to pm me that will work also. I am looking for the good and bad as I will be hunting that area for the first time next spring. I have talked with some air transporters but I like to hear what people's opinions are. how long of a hunt did you take? is it buggy in the spring? lots of water? did you see alot of bears? just one?
I was thinking of just hunting the public side and not buying the native land access permit.... is this something I should get?
thanks for any information and advice. this will be fulfilling a dream of mine since I learned about these bears watching marty schoeffer's wild america and reading books when I was a young lad.
Wife had 246 tag this spring. Shot a nice boar on the 3rd day and we did not recover it. No Mosquitos to speak of, a bit of a mayfly hatch which was annoying while walking near one of the lakes. Getting around was pretty easy on foot. Brush was there but not crazy thick. We were fine in hiking boots and gaiters, no need for waders. Only saw one other bear. Probably would have seen more if we had been looking..... But after she shot the bear we spent 2 full days with our noses to the ground looking for him.
Biggest advice I can give you, don't wound a bear. It really, really, really sucks.
Oh yeah we were on the public side.

sorry to hear that... I have had two grizzlies disappear after getting hit hard so I know the feeling. what were your dates that you guys went out? who was your air taxi and would you recommend them?
Thanks for the info. I am planning on landing in one of the lakes by the hills and set up camp then walk and hunt the hills on the east side of the peninsula. I should have a buddy with me and possibly my 14 yr old son....he wants to go really bad... I am just concerned for his well being. anyways, thanks again quest32a
