Since I was a kid I have always wanted to kill a brown bear. Every time I thought that I would have enough scratch to book a hunt prices really jumped and kicked me back down. Its gotten to the point where I can pretty much say that Kodiak and the Penninsula are just not in the cards for me . I've seen pricing from 15k to 19+ . Does anyone know of any respectable guides that are closer to a working guys budget and still in a decent area.I don't need a 10 ft bear but I'm not gonna shoot a dink just to say I did it. I've been hunting DIY for moose and bou up there for half a decade and have good gear and will bring it and my own food if that is what it takes to get it done. Anyone have any referals they would care to share? I understand if you don't want to post it publically ,pm me if so. Thanks for any help you guys can offer.
