Plenty of great information on this board. Only problem is that there is to much of it!!.
I found after reading all that I could, I am more confused than ever. I am hopping you guys can give me a hand.
This is our situation. I want to take my Dad on a boat based brown bear hunt next spring. He not getting any younger and his physical condition is bad at best. Knees/Shoulders etc etc
His dream has always been to hunt Brown bear in Alaska. And I happen to think a Boat based hunt is going to be the only way it works.
In his ideal situation, he would like to hunt a respectable BB that would measure up only on his scale. Size is not as important as the experience.
He wants to be able to fish during the down time, eat seafood at night and hunt with someone who will try there very best for him. Safety and being on the good side of the law are paramount. 7-10 days would be best.
Now as for price.. I don't see a need to pay the most expensive, but at the same time we are rather afraid of the cheapest. Having a chance to see these BB would be a trophy in it self, but obviously we would like a hunt that showed us a good opportunity or 2.
Can you guys recommend a great outfitter or hunting service so that we could begin the conversation.
I want this for my dad due to the hard work he has put in thought his life and its just now that finances say its OK to go (read that as "Mom" finally said it was OK")
I want this to come together for my dad and for myself. He is coming up on 60 and I am not sure how many great adventures he has left in him.
I have already mentioned on another thread the following Boat based out fitter
Glacier Mountain Outfitters
Greg & Petra Jennen
Now Greg seems like a good guy, but I am a little apprehensive about the fact that I cant seem to find a ton of info on his company. I enjoyed our long conversation yesterday, but he is just in the process of getting permits from the GOV, so he has no references in regards to this particular area. Also he says there is no fishing in the area he hopes to hunt.
He did mention we would be hunting Hitchenbrook Island.
Does anyone have any info on this place?
I know it seems that I am asking a TON of questions, but I need knowledgeable answers and have always found it best to go right to those that know what they are talking about
