The grizzly bear is the same species of bear as the brown bear, but the name grizzly is taken from it’s “grizzled” fur – gray hairs mixed into the brown. They’ve also been called “silvertip bears.”
Above the Arctic Circle where we hunt the Grizzly’s – an adult male Alaska grizzly bear can get up to 1500 pounds and stand 8-10 feet tall. They are considerably smaller than the brown bear that are hunted in lower Alaska, but still provide that “fear factor” when you see one in the field and remain a sought after trophy for many of our hunters.
While scientists and the Department of Fish and Game consider the grizzly and the brown bear to be the same species, here in Northwest Arctic Alaska we consider the bears in the GMU 23 to be grizzlies, and those on the Alaska Peninsula to be brown bears. Ram Aviation flies into both of those area and many more.
