  • Kodiak= Biggest Blacktails?

    It seems that the biggest blacktailed deer always seem to come from Kodiak or are there other areas of the state that give up bigger deer?

    thats what thought, but go to blacktailcountry.com and check out those harvested by Jim Bachtail, in Southeast, hes got some monsters and several top trophies in the books.

      biggest black tail

      Kodiak might have the reputation of producing alot of good black tail but the largest heads are comming from southeast alaska.... take alot at the B@C book....

        found a shed two springs ago on kodiak that if symetrical woulda scored an inch shy of the world record, i found the shed 14 yards off a four wheeler trail.

            racks

            I gotta agree with Johnnie as far as racks go. But I've seen some big bodies in both PWS and on Kodiak. The Kodiak road system and Spruce Is., near Kodiak both have some hefty bucks. And Hawkins Is. Near Cordova has a reputaion locally for large bodied bucks. They just don't grow much for racks compared to Kodiak or POW.
            An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

              i'm gonna step out on a limb having not done research on POW, but i'm gonna say that if you hunted both areas, i think you could come up some some identical deer. both areas have the habitat for big deer to disapear and get big if they wanted. i'd say you could hit either area and do just as well in both places

                Some time ago I kinda averaged out the top of the B&C list. It was about tied for POW Island and Kodiak at about 15 each at the top end.

                The difference is that hunters kill over 10,000 deer per year on Kodiak to get those entries and POW Island hunters kill between 2,500 and 3,000 to get those entries.

                There are plenty of scoring bucks from both places that are never entered.

                But the odds are much better on POW that among the deer you see on a hunt will have a higher % of bigger bucks.

                        made an error

                        just did some checking book says 133 is the current record, i was told it was 126 and some change, the half rack i have woulda been 125 so i was off quite a bit. still can get some pics of it it you want, but i didn't realize the current deer was 133, sorry about the mis hap.
