The next best thing to being here in Kodiak is
to enjoy The History Channel’s upcoming series that was filmed in
part at Larsen Bay Lodge. “The Hunt” was filmed to chronicle hunting
Kodiak Bear, which the History Channel calls, “one of the most
dangerous pursuits known to man… (Kodiak Bears) are armed with razor
sharp claws and powerful jaws. The Kodiak brown bear also possesses
an eerie elusiveness and a sharp intelligence that is not to be
underestimated. They have the ability to blur the lines between the
hunted and the hunter.”
According to their news release, this series
will illustrate the value of this resource and the vital role bear
hunting plays: “Brown bear co-existence with humans on the island is
a delicate balance yet is regarded as one of the most successful
conservation efforts in the world. Most hunters go after adult
males, or boars, who when food is scarce are known to kill and eat
cubs as well as cause trouble near populated areas. Aside from
population control management, bear hunting is also vital to the
economic viability of Kodiak. Hunting permits help pay for the
conservation protection of the animals’ habitat and preservation
conservation of their species for generations to come.”
The 8 part series begins on Sunday June 8th at
10:00 pm ES/PT. We had fun being part of this film project and had
some greats hunts here at Larsen Bay Lodge. We hope you will tune in
and tell your friends not to miss this opportunity.

arsen Bay Lodge, accessible by a short 30-minute
flight from the town of Kodiak, has been in operation since 1968 and
has entertained thousands of wonderful guests. In 2005 ESPN Outdoors
shot an episode at Larsen Bay Lodge with special guest Kevin Sorbo,
best known as star of Hercules. Outdoor Life Hunting Editor and
author of over 1,500 articles and 23 books, Jim Zumbo, came for a
Cast & Blast adventure with us in 2005 as well. At Larsen Bay Lodge
the adventure still remains! You can still experience the raw beauty

We have two lodges and two private cabins on the beachfront. Get a good night's sleep and wake to breathtaking sunrises on the bay.
