Bear Hunt - Fall
starts August 20
Fall hunt (from August 20) is different from spring. The bears move to the rivers depending the dates of the influx of spawning salmon, crop capacity of berries and cedar nuts. On the spawning creeks hunting takes place mostly during the dark from blinds. The older, smarter and larger the bear, the later he will come to the spawning grounds. We recommend having night-vision optics and sighting in your rifle at 100 yards. It is also recommended you bring warms clothes, a wind breaker, and good rain gear. Hip boots are necessary for both fall and spring hunting.
If the crop of the cedar nuts is good the bears prefer this hearty food stock. At this time your hunting will be conducted in the morning and evening, by watching you will find a trophy moving along the trails in the cedar brush. By day our bears sleep deep in the cedars. This is exciting bear hunting, but it is a good idea not to follow your trophy into the brush! If the bears are In the berry-fields, you will see a number of animals simultaneously and can choose your trophy.
An average mature bear is about 8 feet. Our hunters regularly take bears over 8 feet and quite often over 9 feet. 15 % of our clients take huge bears measuring 9.8 feet or larger. The size of trophies taken in the fall time was not smaller than the bears taken in spring.
Fall hunting can also be easily combined with a moose or Big Horn hunt.
