Book a big game hunting trip in Alaska today

Nowhere else offers so many opportunities, and such prolific and diverse wildlife, in a breathtaking setting! Sitka Blacktail Deer hunting is one of many exciting activities at this location. There are many reasons to consider coming to Alaska to hunt Sitka Blacktail Deer. For some avid deer hunters it is an opportunity to take a different species of deer. For others it is the opportunity to just hunt in Alaska!

Whatever your motivation, deer hunting in Alaska is a tremendous value There is even more value when you consider the current limit on Kodiak Island is 3 deer per hunter! So for about the same cost as a guided hunt elsewhere for whitetail or mule deer, you can instead come to Kodiak Island and experience the adventure and beauty of Alaska, take three Sitka Blacktail Deer, see a myriad of land and marine life, catch snow crabs, duck hunt, and even throw in some fishing! Where else can you do all that?

Though the Sitka Blacktail Deer has a smaller rack than most deer species, they are arguably the most handsome of the deer species. These stocky little deer have a dark, almost black forehead with a double white throat patch and rich chestnut colored antlers. To make the Boone & Crockett Record Book the minimum score is 108. Many deer taken with the outfitters we book with that have exceeded that minimum.

The deer season opens August 1st and closes on December 31st. During August, Kodiak Island is lush green, living up to it’s nickname – The Emerald Island. At this time of year the deer are still in velvet and most of them are in the higher elevations. But the thick lush vegetation makes it difficult to hike after them and they are equally difficult to see. September frosts begin to reveal more deer and it is easier to get around. The Blacktail frequent the gravel beaches on the coast to eat the kelp that washes ashore as winter approaches. October snows begin bring even more deer from the interior of the island to the coast as food becomes more scarce. In November and December greater snow accumulations force more deer down from higher elevations to the milder sea level where browse and kelp is readily available. As a result, herds of deer are often found right along the beaches!

With the liberal deer limit, you can shoot the first good buck you see and then try to improve on it with your next tag. To make things even more convenient, you can buy your deer tags and any other licenses you might need right at the lodge.
