The month of May is bear season in Southcentral Alaska. With prime hides and empty stomachs, boars leave their mountain dens and head downhill, away from the snow line, towards the food-laden beaches.
The area we hunt has an extremely high population of black bear. It’s not uncommon to see a dozen or more in a day!
All hunts are self-guided, allowing hunters to chase Alaska big game in a prime location without breaking the bank.
DeepStrike Sportfishing will transport you to an area with a high bear population, then act as your floating hunting lodge while you stalk your trophy. Once dropped on the beach, you are on your own until you radio in for pickup each day.
As with many other big game, the best hunting is early in the morning and late in the evening. This leaves plenty of time midday to target halibut and other sport fish.
All meals are prepared on board by your captain and crew. This allows you to focus on the hunt while maximizing your time.
