In the spring the bears gather on the beaches and tidal flats searching for food and new growth grasses and on the salmon streams and berry patches in the fall. This is a low stress but high success hunt. it is not uncommon to see 5 to 15 bear per day.
Hunters are met by the outfitter at the Ketchikan airport. After purchasing the needed tags and licenses they board the comfortable and well equipped boat where they will power to Price of Wales Island or up to the Misty Fjords Monument for the start of the hunt.
