I, along with 3 other friends, just got back from a goat/deer hunt on Kodiak. We had a very good hunt, and although no luck with the goats, we did have some success with deer, and the weather was pretty hard to beat by Kodiak standards. My main reason for this post is to give kudos to our transport service, Island Air. I've been to Kodiak a few times but have only used Andrews in the past. I've never had a bad experience with Andrews, but I must say from now on (if available), I will only use Island Air. Bob Stanford (owner of Island Air) is not only a very nice guy and excellent pilot, but he runs a super tight ship, and was extreamly accomadating and helpful with every aspect of this hunt. So, if your considering an air carrier on Kodiak, I strongly recommend taking a look at Island Air, and if you do decide to use them, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Oh, and by the way, this is not a paid for endorsement. We just had such a positive experience with these guy's I had to post on it.
