Adventure in the heart of southeast alaska

Authentic Hunts and Fishing trips with Scott and Dustin McLeod, life long Sitka residents and guides. You’ll never look at life the same.

 

OUR ROOTS ARE DEEP IN SITKA

Experience some of the most memorable fishing and hunting trips in all of Alaska!

Southeast Alaska:
The Southeast’s geography and climate provide conditions for good habitat for a variety of big game. Sitka black tailed deer are found throughout the region. Black bears are particularly abundant on Prince of Wales and the islands in the central portion of the region. Mountain Goats are indigenous to the coast mountains and transplanted to Baranof Island. Moose are not numerous in Southeast Alaska, although reasonable populations are found on the Yakutat Forelands, in the Haines area, and smaller populations near Juneau, Petersburg and Ketchikan. Wolves are found in parts of Southeast Alaska. Much of the guided big game hunting in this region is by boat. Our boat “the PROFIT”.

FAIR CHASE HUNTS

All of our hunts are fair chase and based from our vessel the Western Profit. For bear hunts, hunters and will be accompanied by one of our master guides in skiffs to locate animals, and then put ashore for the stalk. In the Sitka area, on Baranof and Chichagof island have brown bear populations of one bear per square mile. Kuiu Island boast a black bear population of four bears per square mile, with a good number of wolves present as well. Swirling winds and changing tides can make these hunts challenging!

 

Brown Bear | Ursus Arctos Horribulus

The brown bear represents the spirit of Alaska, especially in Sitka. Strength & Untamed. This is the ultimate challenge for hunters looking for a True Fair chase while hunting the rainforest of SE Alaska. It is simply unmatched. Brown bear is two (2) hunters per 10 day trip. One on one – one guide per hunter, ensuring optimum success for each hunter. Individual hunter success for the last five years has been 85%-100%! Brown, Grizzlies and Kodiaks were once thought to be separate sub-species however it is generally agreed now that they are the same species. The Brown bear so named because he lives within 50 miles of the sea and usually supplements his diet with salmon is much larger than the inland grizzly. The Brown Bear is the largest land carnivore on earth. Although there is some dispute over his cousin the Polar Bear which spends the bulk of his life on ice flows. Admiralty, Baranof and Chichagof Islands in Southeast Alaska are home to large populations of the Brown Bear. Admiralty Island is said to have the densest population on earth at almost one bear per square mile.
