    Black or brown? That makes a big difference in the recommendations you will recieve. Also, do you hope to do this self-guided, fully guided, or perhaps with a boat-based outfitter? Budget constraints? Details will help a lot.

    Default brown bear

    i would like to go self guided or drop camp if available. the full guided hunt would be a little to costly.

    I believe the Alaska Pennisula is open this spring (its open every other spring)
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    easy way to remember is:

    even years........like 2008, 2010 SPRING May 10-25

    odd years..........like 2009, 2011 FALL Oct. 1-21

    I would recommend you go out of King Salmon; south. Several Transporters working out of King Salmon area. High density of bears.

    Probably cost you around 3k from Fairbanks.
