Our Western Alaska bear hunts are held in 2 distinct areas from our camp in Western Alaska. The bears in our first area are considered brown bears and the bears in the second are considered grizzly bears by SCI. Bears in these areas average around 8-8.5 feet square. There are many drainages that have salmon runs in our area, so the bears have plenty to eat.
