For the traveling hunter the destination “Kodiak, Alaska” conjures up big bears, fantastic duck hunting, and great opportunities to shoot a Sitka blacktail deer.
Blacktail Deer Hunting
If you are wondering where are deer found in Alaska, Kodiak Island has a good population of blacktail deer. Kodiak’s deer are much larger reaching weights of 175 to 200 pounds, producing some excellent trophies. A big part of the appeal of southeast Kodiak is the open country and it's visibility. Hiking up the hillsides while spending time glassing and then stalking is the preferred way for blacktail deer hunting. For the non-hiker, you can stay down low and quietly wait for the deer to come to you.
Your day will begin with a hearty breakfast, then we’re off to transport you to the spot of your choice (preferably with a partner). You will be given a lunch and two-way communications (walkie-talkie) so that you can call to be picked up at the end of your hunting day. You will then be taken back to Kodiak Adventures Lodge where a hot shower, warm fire, and a delicious meal awaits you.
Sharing your stories with us will be the highlight of our day.
