Kodiak Island Sitka Blacktail Deer Hunts

Sitka Blacktail is a unique species of deer and an often sought after trophy needed for the North American Slam of Deer. Blacktail deer hunting on Kodiak Island is one of the best Alaskan hunts for your money. You can combine great hunting with bottom fishing, bear and goat viewing, duck hunting and on top of all that have some scrumptious seafood treats for meals. This is a relatively inexpensive way to see one of the most beautiful areas of Alaska.

Deer hunting in Alaska, by nature, fluctuates from season to season. Due to our southern location on Kodiak Island we have noticed a steady population of harvestable bucks when winterkills on northernmost parts of the island are substantial. Being on a land-based hunt is very advantageous because you sleep in wood heated cabins and always wake up to gear dried by a wood stove and you do not have to concern yourself with seasickness or sleepless nights during rough weather. If the weather is such that you don’t feel the need to hunt, no one is going to kick you out the door.

With good genetics in our area and four bucks in the top 35 of B&C we expect to see continued results and more outstanding trophies from this area on the South end of Kodiak Island.

We offer a guided hunt for the clients that need a little help and companionship or people of alien citizenship. We also offer an unguided hunt for groups of four or more people that would prefer their own outdoor experience. As with all our hunts, guided or unguided, all accommodations, meals, and lodging is provided. We do prefer that unguided hunts come in groups of four and that for safety concerns hunt in pairs. On a guided hunt we do all the skinning, packing out, salting and meat hanging for you. As an unguided hunter these are things you must do for yourself. We are always available to give pointers on caping, should you need it.

We have three boats and a canoe for you to get around the bay and lagoon in. You will not be allowed to use a boat unless you have been checked out on its operation. We also provide drop off and pick up service. The majority of our hunts are guided or semi-guided and since most of my guides know the places where the hard to find bucks habituate the guided hunts normally do about 50% better than unguided hunts, but some guys just have the killer instinct and do fine without a guide. The terrain can be steep in some places and often times you’ll swear you are chasing goat instead of deer, but the reward is well worth the climb.

Season: 08-01 through 12-31 Dates: Hunt not available until after Nov.06
