    Default recommendation for pilots on kodiak

    We are planning a 2016 goat hunt and any recommendation or in info on a pilot to land on alpine lake etc. would be great. I have used kingfisher Air before on deer hunts and they are great people but they don't land on any alpine lakes.

    Another to check on is Andrews air. Rowland at Seahawk is your best bet though.

    North River is your alpine lake guy.

    Only been there one time, but when we went we used Andrews Airways and couldn't have been more pleased with the service, quality of the staff, quality of pilots, and our hunt.

    Andrews, Island, and Seahawk are all exceptional services. Any one of these 3 will do everything in their power to get you geared up and out into the location you want to go. You won't be disappointed with any of them.

    I second this. I have also heard great things about Seahawk. I don't think you'd go wrong with either.
    I think about hunting when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day. And I think about it at night. The only time I don't think about it is when I'm doing it. ~credit to Carl Yastrzemski~

    Andrew Air or Seahawk or the two best in Kodiak. Seahawk Air flys out a beaver and Andrew air has a 206, beaver, or turbine beaver. I have used both over the years and have been pleased each time by their customer service.

    I flew with Island Air this spring and was very pleased with the pilots and service. Not sure if they land on the alpine lakes though.

    Call Taj at North River Air. He has been more than accommodating with my son and me this year. He can land on alpine lakes. I've flown with Island, Andrews, Seahawk, Vertigo and Deckload. All of these can land you on alpine lakes.

    Roland at Seahawk Air or Willie at Andrews Air.

    Flown with Seahawk several times, they are a great outfit. Going with them in a few weeks.
    Not all those who wander, are lost.

    Flew with Roland at Seahawk last weekend. Took a stud of a billy and Roland's insights into the area helped in doing so.

    The guy is not only a pilot, but he lives and breathes all things Kodiak...
    Proud to be an American!

    I used Keller with Deckload Aviation this spring for a bear hunt, he is a great guy and will work with you, pretty amazed that he was able to fly us out of our hunting area with 4 people all of our camp supplies and 2 bear hides in a 206.

    AK Mike, sounds like an overload to me. No way would I accept to be flown in a 206 with that load. glad you made it out OK

    I have flown with Roland at Seahawk and Andrews. You can't go wrong with either one of them!

    Default recommendation for pilots on kodiak

    North River (Taj Shoemakers) is the only person who can get you into the smallest alpine puddles since he's the only transporter on Kodiak with a super cub on floats. I just got off of a goat hunt out of this little lake yesterday. 2500' elevation and only 300 yards long.
