Mike Horstman

On the storm-battered shores of Kodiak Island lives master bear guide, Mike Horstman. A Kodiak resident of more than forty years, he lives alone in a remote coastline cabin on Eagle Harbor, only accessible by boat or plane. It’s here that he has come to be known as one of Kodiak’s most legendary Mountain Men. Mike earns an income guiding brown bear hunts for just 11 weeks out of the year. The rest of his time is spent carving out a subsistence living from his natural surroundings… Where rogue storms can blow in at 100 mph and 3,500 brown bears hibernate on a hair trigger.
