    Default Cordova transport question

    So I am looking into doing a hunt out of Cordova and all I know right now is I'm planning on driving to Valdez and flying from there. I am looking into hunting goat and or deer and if I see them bears. I dont know who to use or even where to start? If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be great.

    Are you taking the ferry to Cordova? There are no flights to Cordova from here. Your better bet for a flight is from Anchorage.

    Also, I'm not so sure you'll find deer on the mainland around Cordova. I believe they're mainly on the islands.

    Here's a couple air taxis outta Cordova

    IMHO a much better hunting opportunity for both those animals could be had on Kodiak for equal or less money. Very few deer on the mainland and lots of land use issues on Cordova.

    Thanks to everyone for there help! I didnt know that you could not fly from Valdez. Next, deer hunting is just a extra. My main goal is goat's. I would be ok with a possible bear as well. Steve, I know you did the Kodiak goat hunt and I will be talking with you about it. I am interested in either place. Like I said my main goal is a goat. I respect your opinion and will listen to what you have to say.

    J Corwin if your main goal is goat, you should be looking at mid season registrations hunts. There are A LOT of mt goat reg hunts either on the mainland or Kodiak. Many on the mainland do not require a really expensive flight, some just need a $150 boat ride, that being said, Cordova is a great place to go for a hunt, I did it and had a great time!
