Black Bear Hunting Trips: Services

Kenai Peninsula Black Bear Hunts

Swoboda Charters offers spring black bear hunts starting the first of April. All Spring hunts take place in remote portions of the Kenai peninsula home of one of the worlds densest black bear populations in the world. Hunters will be hiking mountainous terrain hunting over locations of interest such as watering holes, feeding areas and travel routes. In between stalking one of the top predators Alaska has to offer and taking in the breath taking views hunters will have the opportunity to fish for some of Alaska most prestigious fish Halibut and yellow-eye rock fish.


What to Expect

The start of every trip begins with traveling to the hunting grounds while hunters settle into their bunk rooms and set up their ground zero for the week. Everyday will consist of a hot breakfast to start the day as hunters form a plan of attack for the days hunt. Field Pack lunches are prepared and given to each hunter before departing the boat once the hunters are ready they will board the skiff and be shuttled to their hunting location of choice. Once at the desired hunting location the hunters proceed with their hunt until ready to return to the Allen Ray or move to another hunting location. Once the hunters are done with their hunt they will radio back to the Allen Ray to be picked up once back aboard the Allen Ray dinner will be served and the rest of the night will consist of butchering game, watching movies and reminiscing on the days activities.
