November 4-11 and 11-18 (6 hunting days)
Hunt the unique trophy blacktail deer in one of the most enchanting places in America: Kodiak Island. The deer population is high and so is the success rate and trophy quality. Bucks average around 95, though deer up to 120 inches have been taken. This hunt is focused during the pre-rut and rut when bucks are typically found lower on the mountain side chasing does. The hunt is based out of a very comfortable 2,000 square foot lodge with warm beds and plenty of home cooked meals. You will access different hunting areas via skiff, spot and stalk hunting with lots of glassing. Other activities here include fox and sea duck hunting. Over 10 species are available including Harlequin, Barrow’s Goldeneye, Scoters, and Old Squaw. You usually hunt over decoys, although pass and jump shooting are also used. This is a well-rounded hunting vacation geared for true sportsmen. This outfitter strictly limits the amount of hunters each year.
