In the year 2000 we started our spring black bear camps and they were a great success, harvesting a high percentage of Pope and Young bears. Our clients averaged 8-10 bear sightings per sit. But in the summer of 2004 a forest fire went through the hunt area and, even though we were still able to hunt, the bears were not as plentiful as before. We decided to let the area rest and give the habitat a chance to recover. We are planning a limited number of spring black bear hunts in 2013.

Spring Black Bear

Our spring hunts start the first week of June and run through the end of June. By this time of the year it’s light enough to hunt all night, so that’s what we do! This eliminates the problem of bears feeding on baits after dark and never seeing them.

We fly into a lake by floatplane and access baits by jet riverboat that are situated along a remote river. At Denali Hunts we have comfortable tent camps. We keep them small (4-6 hunters per week). All of our spring bear hunts are fully guided—one guide with one hunter. You have the advantage of an experienced guide to judge your trophy before you shoot and at the same time your guide can video your hunt. If you book your hunt with three or more hunting buddies you can come as a group and have the whole camp to yourselves for the week. The area we hunt has a three-bear limit, however, we encourage our clients to be selective and only take one bear. If you harvest a bear early and want to take a second bear that can be done on a trophy fee basis. We do this to keep harvest levels at a level that will allow for continuing years of trophy-quality bears.
