    Default Kodiak Weather

    Anyone one know how bad the rain is in Oct. compared to say Sept. or November. I'm trying to plan a deer hunt by boat and wondering when the best time to go would be.

    Thx

    Default October

    Since there's 31 days in October, that's one less day of rain compared to September & November!!! Pick October!

    honestly though, I would pick September because November will be colder and you have a chance to get some late run silvers. It really is unpredictable though.

    Default Forget the weather, just hunt :-)

    If I was going for Deer, I would go the 1st week of Nov. Simply because Blacktail on Kodiak typically go into rut during the 1st week of NOV. The weather is worse yea, but almost all of the vegatation is gone, that means better visibility and the deer will have a greater tendency to come down at low tide.
    1. It's the rut
    2. Better Visibility
    3. More Deer down at low tide
    4. Maybe most of all, less hunting pressure.

    well theres usually less rain in november, cause most of it has turned to snow....

    you'll see deer in nov that you wouldn't see in oct or sept...horney deer move more.

    Thanks for the posts guys. I've spent a bit of time in Kodiak from June through August, but never later on in the hunting season. I do know it rains in sheets down there and am always prepared for it. Thanks for the input, I'll see if we can swing for November.
