Hi all - you've been a great help in the past and I'm hoping for any advice for a lower 48'er. I'll be heading to Kodiak Island in mid-November to try for Sitka blacktail.
This is an unguided hunt out of Old Harbor. We stay in Old Harbor and go out to the hunting areas by boat each day. Possibly might get to try some fishing or sea duck hunting if things go well on the deer hunt.
Of course, as someone who grew up in the middle of the U.S., thousands of miles from Alaska, the word Kodiak Island automatically conjures up visions of giant bears and adventuresome souls.
I'm excited at this opportunity, and would appreciate any feedback on hunting out of the Old Harbor area for deer.
As always, thanks.
