Pioneer Outfitters began in 1924 with Grizzly Bear Hunts. A long time tradition, hunting the North country for this mighty animal, Grizzly Bear hunting has always been the hunt of the brave.
There is simply nothing more impressive, more captivating, more emblematic of the North American wilds than the Grizzly Bear.
“Those who have packed far up into grizzly country know that the presence of even one grizzly on the land elevates the mountains, deepens the canyons, chills the winds, brightens the stars, darkens the forest, and quickens the pulse of all who enter it.”
Grizzly Bear Hunts
We have one of the only areas in Alaska that a Grizzly Bear may be taken every year instead of one every four years. With an area of 55 by 65 miles, our Bear population supports this harvest. Our Grizzlies never leave the Chisana Valley ~ they are true Mountain Grizzlies.
The Grizzly Bear is a North American subspecies of the Brown Bear.
These awe-inspiring giants tend to be solitary animals—with the exception of females and their cubs—but at times they do congregate. Grizzly bears are powerful, top-of-the-food-chain predators, yet much of their diet consists of nuts, berries, fruit, leaves, and roots. Bears also eat other animals, from rodents to moose.
The cold breeze that is always blowing off the glacier ice makes the Grizzly’s coats prime, thick and silky. Black Bear may also be taken at no additional fee to your hunt.
Good binoculars and patience is what it takes to be a good Grizzly Bear hunter. You must be willing to sit and glass and let the bears do the moving. One more good point, you do not need hip boots here, in Chisana!
