The time has come! It is now time to apply for a black bear permit if you would like to hunt with us in Fall 2016 or Spring 2017. The application period runs from November 1 until December 15, 2015 at 5pm AKST. Drawing a permit is not a guarantee, so we recommend making sure you draw a permit before booking your stay with us. There will be 100 spring and 30 fall black bear permits available during this draw. Although there are less fall permits, drawing one can provide you the incredible opportunity to hunt black bears, hunt blacktail deer, and fish the fall silver run all at the same time! Similarly, a spring permit can give you the opportunity to fish for halibut during your bear hunt. You may apply individually or two hunters may apply together as a party, meaning if one draws a permit both get a permit. You can find all the application information and the online application here. Our area, Prince of Wales Island, is Hunt Unit 2. The fall black bear hunt is Hunt Number DL027 while the spring hunt is Hunt Number DL028. Give us a call or shoot us an email if you are interested in applying so that we can talk strategy!
