Drew the Sturgeon River for next spring.
It's just beyond the Karluk river to the west. It drains into Shelikof Strait between Karluk and Sturgeon Head.
I think me & a buddy paid the natives $100 trespass fee in 2008 for Karluk lake. I know they have built a lodge and guest cabins on the lake's island since then for bear viewing. If I was you I would call Roland @ seahawk air. He is a great guy & very knowledgable of what goes on on Kodiak
Thanks, I know Roland and he is definitely knowledgable and a great pilot, I would use him for access if we go. The native corporation has been making some changes recently and they don't seem too friendly towards my budget. The numbers I have heard are in the $1500 range per bear.
I'm friends with Larry Van Daele at ADF&G, he's been keeping me advised. If we go, we'll only target one bear for my son, though we both have tags.
Thanks for the advice!
Darn greedy native corps. Cold bay bear hunt sounds better every year. Let me know how you guys do.
I scratched on the bear hunt this spring. The time I had allotted for it was spent waiting on weather to be flyable. It's about a 8-9 hour flight and half of it stayed IFR when I needed to go. Oh well, it's hard to fly or solo hunt brown bears in dense fog!
My 300 grain Swift A-Frames will have to wait for awhile.
