HIGH-SUCCESS BROWN BEARS OF THE TOGIAK

DESTINATION OVERVIEW

Many Alaskan brown bear hunts are priced at $27,500 to $39,500. This hunt is an absolute bargain! Please don’t let the price fool you. It is a 100% quality hunt and sells out every year. The hunt takes place on a Federal Refuge. The outfitter has exclusive guiding rights on over two million acres and takes 12-14 hunters annually. In 2023, we had one hunter quit early for unknown reasons, and one hunter wound a bear. Otherwise, everyone took a dandy bear in that 8.5 to 9.5 range.

2024 is fully booked. I have just opened the books for 2025 and I expect they will sell very quickly.

2025 Price: $20,000 plus $1000 Charter Fee

THE HUNT

The only thing predictable about caribou hunting is they are unpredictable!  They are constantly moving.  Your best bet is to find a good vantage point near your camp and use your glasses to first spot the caribou.  Then you need to decide if there are any bulls worth attempting a stock on.  Then the fun begins.  You want to try to get in from of them if you get behind them and they are walking you will never catch them.  Get ahead, find a good place to shoot from, and let them come to you.  I was with a client on this exact hunt a few years back.  We were seeing everything except caribou!  Then all of a sudden seven beautiful bulls came down the mountain right into our valley.  The client dropped the bull about 400 yards from camp and just a short pack to the runway. 

My best advice is to enjoy Alaska!  Keep glassing and the caribou will show up.

FOOD & LODGING

This is a true wilderness hunt.  You will be staying in tents right in the heart of the best hunting areas.  Food will consist of the basics.  Although food is provided on this outfitted hunt we suggest packing a couple extra of your favorite snacks and drink mixes. Before you embark on your hunt you and your party will be provided an extensive information packet that will go over all details of your hunt.
