Sitka Black-tailed Deer Hunts
Kodiak Island is hunting paradise! Kodiak holds a healthy population of trophy Sitka black-tailed deer. This is a great hunt for one of the most beautiful deer in North America. Access to our remote location is by float plane from Kodiak to the main lodge in Ugak Bay. Kodiak’s deer reach weights of 175 to 200 pounds, producing some excellent trophies. Hiking up the hillsides while spending time glassing and then stalking is the preferred way for Sitka black-tailed deer hunting. For the non-hiker it's best to book a later hunt and you can stay down low and quietly wait for the deer to come to you. The opportunity to collect a trophy Sitka black-tailed deer makes for a great hunting experience. Each day you will begin with a hearty breakfast, then we’re off to transport you by boat to the spot of your choice (preferably with hunting partners) in Ugak Bay. You will be given a lunch and a VHF radio so that you can call to be picked up at the end of your hunting day. You will then be transported back to the main lodge where a comfortable living room, banya steam bath, warm fire, and a delicious meal awaits you. Sharing your stories with us will be the highlight of our day. Method of take is your choice (rifle, archery or muzzle loader). Besides Sitka black-tailed deer, Kodiak offers sea duck hunting, fox hunting, sport fishing, and free-ranging bison hunts. Sea Duck Hunting: Bring your shotgun for sea ducks. Ducks include: Harlequin, Golden Eye, Old Squaw, Bufflehead, Mallard, Pintail, Brandt, and many more. Fox Hunting: Kodiak Island has 3 color phases of red fox (Red, Cross and Black, also referred to as Silver). Your deer hunting license will cover fox hunting (limit is 2 foxes) as well and there is no additional charge. Sport Fishing: You can also go fishing for Halibut, Ling cod, and Black rockfish. Bison Hunting: You may also upgrade to a free-ranging Bison hunt. If you would like to experience a truly remote lodge and Alaskan hunt, this is the place!

Travel: Clients are responsible for commercial air travel to and from Kodiak, Alaska and air charter flights to and from main lodge on Ugak Bay. We suggest you arrive 1-2 days in Kodiak prior to your hunt commencing, so you can adjust to our climate, get over any jet lag, and pick-up any additional hunting gear or personal items you may need. Air charter fee is determined by type of aircraft (Cessna 206, DeHavilland Beaver, Widgeon), length of flight, payload, number of passengers, weight of all passengers, carry-on gear, and trophy weight on return flight. For planning purposes, recommend 1-2 days in Kodiak or Anchorage to take care of trophy or shipping after your hunt. We recommend purchasing airline tickets with flexible change policies in the event of bad weather or unforeseen circumstances that may affect your transportation to and from the main lodge.
