A new series on The Discovery Channel will show why bear hunting is more than just a sport.
Filmed on Alaska's Kodiak Island, Kodiak will not only give viewers a glimpse into a world where bear hunting is a way of life, but it will also demonstrate the biological and scientific rationale behind controlling the population of "the largest land carnivore on the planet: the Kodiak brown bear," according to a Discovery Channel press release.
The series "chronicles the lives of the Mays, the Hollands, and the Cusacks," who are "three multi-generational families risking it all to make a living" on Alaska's unforgiving Kodiak Island--a place where simply surviving is a struggle for "even the most experienced outdoorsmen."

In Russia — bear hunts you.
Sounds like my kind of show. I’ve spent a fair amount of time in AK, though I’ve never been to Kodiak Island.
Bear hunters from outside are starting to show up in SE. Saw one dressing out a little black bear in a skiff a few days ago. The guide walked up while we were chatting on the dock and said that the group had bagged six.
Is there a limit?
Man that guy is small.
I have often wondered about hunting bare.
that guy probably made one hell of a rug
What part of SE are you in? I’m a Juneau resident since 1997.
Right now we are in Petersburg. I'm on a boat so we move around, especially during the summer. We sailed up from Hawaii in 2012 and we are loving it.
These guys were non-residents. One per person, per year according to their guide.
Big game in Alaska, including the black bear, are managed in 26 distinct game management units. Season dates, bag limits, and other regulations vary per unit. Browns are much more restricted than blacks and locals, of course, have fewer restrictions than tourist hunters.
Probably because he is about 10=15 feet behind the bear. Perspective makes the bear look bigger the farther back he moves.
It is a common photo trick.
Anyone who voluntarily goes up against a Kodiak Bear (or a Grizzly, for that matter) is plain nuts.
Just a personal opinion.
And don’t even ask me what I think of lion hunters!
Polar bears are larger.
You’re living the dream. My dream, at least.
they’re whiter too.
I’m rooting for the bears. If a bear hunter gets whacked, I’d smile. BTW: Probably fired a combination of over 75 thousand rounds in my life, military and civilan. Trophy hunting just sucks.
