Alaska Deer Hunting
Exceptional Sitka blacktail mount
from a Homer Ocean hunt

The finest Blacktail Deer hunt in all of Alaska just keeps getting better! We are constantly trying to improve our hunts by using our own experience and suggestions from our clientele. These improvements include Saturday departures, direct flights to the boat, a diesel furnace, more gear storage, and many others. We thank you for your suggestions and help in making this hunt even better. While we can not control the weather or the deer population, exceptionally mild winters have helped the herd increase rapidly and helped to keep our hunters success rate near 100%. If you have been thinking about hunting Sitka Blacktail on Kodiak, now is the time for great hunting, a large deer population, and great success rate.

Our deer hunts will once again be 8 days and 7 nights long as we have found this to be the best hunt length. Our 27th season on Kodiak is scheduled to begin on the last Saturday of September, with hunts starting each Saturday through early December. Hunts begin in Kodiak on Saturday mornings with chartered flights directly to the boat, which is located at the south end of Kodiak Island in the Olga Bay area.  We prefer to keep the boat on site in protected waters and fly you right to where the action is. We do not allow proxy hunting on these hunts.

Our boat, the Outer Limits, a 60' "Little Hoquiam" charter yacht, is a Coast Guard licensed vessel. We limit the number of hunters to six. The vessel is equipped with three private cabins with individual bathrooms, a bunk room, shower, 110v power, TV/DVD, stereo, state of the art electronics, diesel furnace, freezer and many other features added to make your hunt more enjoyable. It is constantly manned by two Coast Guard licensed masters with years of experience in the area.

Once on board you will be briefed about the boat and can get your gear stowed in the bunkroom. After you are settled in we issue licenses and tags if necessary and get in an afternoon hunt or just take it easy the rest of the day. The area offers a wide variety of hunting options from beach hunting and hiking into mountain saddles to stand hunting with a rifle or a bow (or hand gun). The island supports over 100,000 deer and several mild winters in a row have populations at their highest level in recent years. Days start off with a hearty breakfast then skiff transportation to that days chosen location. Hunters are usually dropped off in pairs with a hand held radio for safety and/or early pick up. You will enjoy a hearty lunch in the field and look forward to a hot dinner that may include New York strip steaks, BBQ ribs, baked ham, "Thanksgiving" turkey, and of course, your venison if you so choose!

The early weeks of the season offer salmon fishing, and duck hunting begins October 8th with many species of collector ducks available. Kodiak island is known for its populations of Old Squaws, Harlequin, and more.  Several color phases of fox are abundant on the island. Whatever your desire is, our staff is dedicated to providing our guests with a hunting adventure tailored to each individual expectations and goals. Our staff's combined expertise and years of experience help to ensure you an Alaskan experience not to be forgotten. Many of our guests return year after year to experience this truly unique week once again. Saturday morning provides ample time for boxing your meat and capes in wax "airline" boxes available on board and packing your gear in time for an afternoon flight back to Kodiak.

Other costs are airfare to Kodiak, your lodging in Kodiak, tax and $8 for each wax box. Duck hunters should bring state and federal duck stamps and steel shot.
