I'm pretty new to AK. I have a Stinson 108 that I would like to use to fly to Kodiak for hunting deer. It's about a two hour flight from where my airplane is hangered. I understand that it's legal to land and hunt the same day there. I'm thinking that I could land on a beach and hunt from there. Is there anyone that has done this and could give me any advise?
I've been told that the west end of the island is where the hunting is best. I'd like to do this late summer or early fall this year. I'm willing to make some scouting trips first but would like any guidance I can get before I go scouting.
I have also heard that because of the rough winter last year, the deer population is down and this might not be the best year to go.
