    Default Kodiak Blacktail Winter Kill

    Has anybody heard how the deer faired through last winter?

    Thanks

    Default winter kill

    I've been hunting Kodiak for the past 15 years and pay pretty close attention to the weather all year long. Last winter every time I logged on to Kodiaks weather cam all I saw was snow - which is very unsuall. A friend of mine went bear hunting on Kodiak this spring and reported that he thought the deer numbers were way down. I also called a pilot friend of mine whom lives in Kodiak and he said he thought last winter was pretty bad (one of the worst he's seen) - I spoke with fish and game in Kodiak and as usuall they told me the deer weren't hurt too bad - they said they same thing the last time there was a major die off. I don't have a lot of confidence in their management of the deer. I would suspect that the big bucks will be few and far between this year. I plan to skip Kodiak this year. Good luck...
