SOUTHEAST ALASKA - TROPHY COASTAL BLACK BEAR HUNTING ALASKA GLACIER ADVENTURES
The coastal Black Bears of Alaska are some of the worlds largest and regularly exceed 350 pounds. Bear's with Boone and Crockett skulls that square in excess of seven feet are frequently taken. A healthy bear will often put on 25 % more body weight by the time late fall arrives. This means a 400 pounder in the spring can be in excess of 500 pounds in the fall. Prince of Wales Island is home to many record book bears and we have put clients on many of these gigantic bears. Records? Read on -

TROPHY COASTAL SITKA BLACK-TAILED DEER HUNTING
This boat-based hunt for trophy Sitka Black-tailed Deer and Seaducks is during the peak of the deer rut on Prince of Wales Island.
Prince of Wales island is renown for trophy Sitka Black-tails and in 2008 one of our hunters took at least one deer, several took 2 or 3 and you can shoot up to 4 bucks. The Sitka Black-tail Deer are in the peak of the rut during November. This exciting, action-packed hunt will often see the deer running to our fawn-in-distress calls before throwing on the brakes when they almost trample you. The deer hunting is all spot and stalk with calling and rattling being employed. This is a very high success hunt. Depending on the year and the depth of the snow, the deer can often be hunted very close to the beach, but just as likely it can be a very physical hunt with lots of hiking. The deer are delicious eating and a mature buck can tip the scales well over 180 lbs. Prince of Wales is home to some of the best deer hunting in all Alaska with several record book bucks being taken annually. In 2008 one of our hunters took the 2nd largest deer taken in Alaska at 108 3/8" B&C official as per the Alaska Professional Hunters Association annual awards
