Allright guys, I would love to be able to hunt with a great guide like the sponser of this forum. But the truth is that I can't afford it. I would like to take my dad to kodiak and kill a road system buck... but I was curious if its possible to take a boat up one of the local rivers and hunt that way? My dad has a 16' river boat... and I was curious if its a good idea to run up a local river and drift hunt for deer. Any ideas? It really bugs the blankety blank outta me that it takes a few thousand dollers to hunt deer in alaska.. I understand why it would cost so much.. the price of diesal and all... but I am trying to track down the least expensive way to kill deer here in alaska. I work for an air cargo company.... so i get discounts on air fare to kodiak.... or we can take the ferry. I have read many many many posts already on this forum.. and honestly they haven't told me a whole lot on this subject... so please don't just refer me to former posts.
