|For the hunter looking for the ultimate hunting destination, “Kodiak, Alaska” conjures up images of big brown bears, fantastic sea duck hunting, and a great opportunity to shoot a Sitka blacktail deer.
Kodiak Adventures Lodge sits all alone at the head of the bay. There are no other lodges within approximately 25 miles. Because of our location, you will rarely see another hunter. Our remote location can give you the opportunity to hunt undisturbed in the Alaskan wilderness, something every hunter dreams of.
The blacktail deer season is several months long with the best hunting beginning mid-October until the end of the year. This hunt can be as challenging or as relaxing as you choose. Some hunters like to hike and be on the move constantly looking over the next ridge. Other hunters like to move at a little slower pace, do a lot of glassing and take in all of the beautiful scenery and other abundant wildlife Kodiak has to offer.
Our waterfowl season stretches from Mid-October to January 22. Because of the milder climate around Kodiak, our fresh water freezes and thaws throughout the season. Our salt water stays open year round except for those rare days when the head of the bay gets some ice due to the incoming fresh water. These open water areas hold birds year round. Versatility is the key to successful waterfowl hunting. So whether it is pass shooting on a gravel bar, jump shooting around the many freshwater sloughs, or setting out decoys on a rocky point; this fully guided hunt is an opportunity that is hard to pass up for the dedicated waterfowl hunter.
For those resident hunters that are fortunate enough to have drawn a coveted brown bear tag or goat tag for our area, congratulations! When it comes to planning your hunt, let us help you in your quest for a memorable trip. We can provide all of your in field transportation and accommodations during your hunt. We can drop you off at a location of your choice, pick you up at the end of the day’s hunt, and bring you back to our warm, comfortable lodge so you won’t have to “rough” it.
So whether you live here in Alaska or are traveling from far away, there are many opportunities for an Alaskan hunting adventure here at Kodiak Adventures Lodge. You may even choose to do a little fishing as we also offer combination trips.
