Alaskan Hunts with Rick and Lori Townsend

With unmatched experience and all the secrets of the trade, accredited and registered guide Rick Townsend will stop at nothing to ensure your Alaska hunting trip is the experience of a lifetime! Conducting fair chase hunts in some of the best locations on the planet, Grizzly Expeditions offers hunting (and fishing!) packages on a personal level, giving you the exact trip you're looking for. Although we provide hunting & fishing trips for many different species in many different areas of Alaska, we specialize in bear and moose hunts in Game Management Unit 6, near the Gulf of Alaska and Unit 21 - Middle Yukon

Bear hunting in the remote, yet vast areas of Alaska can be challenging, especially due to weather, the terrain and physical condition of the participants. Although our clients are asked to bring many of their own hunting and camping supplies, the gear we do provide is of the highest quality for this type of use, making the environmental challenges Alaska throws at us much easier to bear! (pun intended) However challenging, these hunts are also very rewarding - Grizzly Expeditions has strived to deliver a high success rate over the years of operation and will continue to do so. During our hunt trips, clients will typically spot 5-10 bears per day on the Unit 21 August Grizzly Bear Hunt and around 1 bear per day on the September Moose/Grizzly combo hunt - this is because during this time, the bears are feeding on berries rather than fish and are more spread out throughout the area.

All in all, the best part about hunting or fishing with us is that we are a small, family run guide service so we are very flexible in the type of trips we offer. Rick and his wife, Lori, do almost all of the guiding with an assistant guide to help from time to time but rest assured, they will be part of every hunt or fishing trip. The personalized service is what we have found over the years to be why our guests come back.
