Went on a deer hunt with Alaska Coastal Marine. Stayed for 6 nights/7days on their boat. Had a great trip and we could not have been treated better. Hunting was tough. Deer were high up but we managed to get three in our party. We were hoping for snow this time of year. The main reason for my post is this. I underestimated the terrain and over estimated my physical condition. I had a year to prepare for this and did little to nothing as far as excercise. If I had been in better shape my hunting would have been more successfull I am sure. If you are planning a trip to Kodiak to hunt take it from a 48 year old who learned the hard way-get busy and hit that stair climbing machine!! Also I would stay away from Avis car rental in Kodiak-bad experience with them, had no problems with the other rental company.
