I'm interested in putting together a brown bear hunt in the Cordova area my (out of state) mother and I. We are not interested in being guided for the hunt and it is not required with my resident status for the past 20 years.
We tried to get a hunt together a couple years ago and my dad's heart attack put a stop to my mom's ability to travel at that time. Back to the planning stages again now and we are looking at hunting next fall. She's a very capable and experienced hunter with a large black bear and a B&C Mountiain Lion on her walls. Although she keeps herself in great shape running a horse ranch, I doubt she is up to the rigors of climbing the mountains to hunt the high country, hence the intent of hunting over a salmon stream.
I'm looking for information on water ways that will have bears on salmon and the best time of year (September? October?) to hunt them. Any suggestions for transporters to contact would be appreciated too.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you can post or PM to me to get things rolling.
