While we offer many types of grizzly bear hunts, we love finding those incredible locations throughout North America for world-class trophy grizzly bears and putting our hunters in those camps! Our top outfitters have an excellent track record of taking 7 to 9+ foot grizzly bears, many of which will have 24-plus inch Boone and Crockett record book skulls. Our extensive research and outfitter connections can help you find that trophy grizzly bear you have always wanted.
Imagine yourself stalking along the bank of a stream in the arctic tundra loaded with spawning salmon and seeing a bear emerge from the alders 30 yards away. In another scenario, you glassed a bear feeding on a ridge top and made a 2-hour stalk to get within 100 yards when the bear suddenly smells you and stands up. Or you are sitting on bait with your bow, and suddenly a bear materializes silently out of nowhere. Any way you slice it, when you get ready to seal the deal, you will simultaneously be excited and terrified. There is nothing quite like hunting these fearless predators.
Grizzly bears are classified differently than brown bears. Brown bears generally live near the southern and eastern coastal areas of Alaska (Units 1-10 and 14-18, to be specific) and have rich food sources and shorter hibernation periods than the inland grizzly bears. Grizzly bears are found in Alaska in the interior up to the arctic coast and also British Columbia, Yukon Territories, Alberta, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. There are also isolated populations in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. They have to work harder for their food sources and hibernate longer; hence they don’t usually get quite as big as their brown bear cousins. Nevertheless, they are stunningly beautiful animals; some consider them the finest trophy in North America.
Trophy bears will generally be in the 7 to 8-foot class, but some areas produce 8.5 to 9+ foot bears. Spring hunts are spot and stalk primarily with a few units open to baiting, which is perfect for archers. And fall hunts usually are concentrated around rivers with spawning salmon and open ridges and hillsides with berries. Archery, muzzleloader, and rifle hunts are all offered. Float trips, horseback, and on foot are the primary methods of hunting, and most hunts will require a bush flight or two. Accommodations are typically nice spike camp set-ups in productive habitats.
Springtime often finds big boars emerging from the den seeking female companionship. Visibility is good, and we take some tremendous mature big boars in the spring. Although occasionally we see bears that have rub marks, hair quality is generally good in the spring. Hunts will typically be in May and June.
Fall hunts are very productive as well. We often see more bears in the fall, but the big boars tend to be nocturnal; we often harvest bears in the evening towards dusk. In addition, fall coats will be incredible this time of year. Fall hunts are generally in August through October. It is often possible to combine bear hunts with other species like dall sheep, moose, caribou, and wolf in the fall.
We offer grizzly bear hunts in several locations in Alaska as well as the Northwest Territories. British Columbia has been closed to grizzly bear hunting for a few years. Our outfitters are carefully selected based on the quality and quantity of animals and the outfitters’ track record of putting our hunters on good bears. We are passionate bear hunters here at Infinity Hunts and understand what it takes to get a big bear on the ground.
We selectively work with a handful of Alaska outfitters who have reliable grizzly bear hunts in some of the best areas. We want to give you the best opportunity to harvest a trophy grizzly bear. We have spring hunts utilizing snowmobiles starting in late April as boars begin to emerge from their dens. Then spot and stalk hunts and some baited hunts (perfect for archers) take place in May and June. Fall float trips down through the Alaska Range are high adventure and success. In the Brooks Range, we experience incredible fall bear hunting around streams with good salmon runs and open valleys with berries, with success rates often exceeding 90%. How about horseback hunts in the Talkeetna Range for your fall bear? No matter the mode of transportation, spring or fall, we likely have a trip for you. We can discuss your trophy expectations, level of physicality, spring vs. fall considerations, hide color and quality characteristics, other species available, and hunting methods to match you up with the best outfitter for your adventure of a lifetime in Alaska.
We offer barren ground grizzly bear hunts in the Northwest Territories along the northern coast. These hunts are conducted by native Inuit guides who live in the area. Fall hunts take place in September and October using boats and quads to hunt bears over food sources. Spring hunts take place from the middle of April to the end of May. These hunts take place using snowmobiles as the bears are emerging from dens and looking for food. Bears in the NWT will average over 7 feet with the largest specimens running 8.5 feet plus. Lodging will be heated wall tents or cabins and wolf and wolverine are typically available as well.
