    I voted Sitka Blacktail deer........Can't think of a hunt that wrangles my imagination and stir's my spirit more than sneaking through the mystical rainforest of a remote island in SE AK pursuing the shy Sitka Blacktail.

    Have yet to hunt them on Kodiak, that might change this fall!

      favorite AK animal to hunt

      SHEEP - Duhhh...not for everyone...seems people either hunt sheep once and never do it again, or every year. I think it is something about the mountains as well as the particular animal.

        Toss-up

        I'm split between sheep and caribou. You can hunt both on the same mountain, but caribou... well they're so beautiful to watch, they have outlandishly huge antlers and there's so many of them! I'm hoping to get a video out soon on an Arctic caribou hunt I did a while back. Check out this link for a preview. You have to scroll to the bottom of the page to watch the video. I think you'll agree with me on caribou! Dall sheep are a special animal indeed though. Tough choice.

        The photo is a small herd we ran into on the upper Aniak one year. We didn't shoot any of them, it was cool to just watch them go by...

        Great poll!

          I voted moose. Nothing else comes remotely close.

            Could not agree more wholeheartedly!!! I went on my first blacktail deer hunt last fall in Southeast. I can honestly say that it blew every hunt I've ever been on out of the water. Just my humble opinion.

              Ahhh, another tough poll to answer

              Though I love being in the sheep mountains, there's nothing more exciting to me than watching a 1500lb bull moose tear the countryside up with a those huge antlers while coming to call!! Even though I love sheep meat more than moose, I voted for moose since this was a hunt poll and not an eating poll!

                Favorite hunt

                I would definitely have to say moose, nothing like an animal the size of a minivan a few yards away.

                  Deer

                  I have to go with Sitka Blacktail. There's nothing like hunting in the woods on a remote island! Great eating too.

                    nothing more primal than a predator hunting a predator, i went with brown/grizzly. tight second would be mt goat. all the fun of mountian hunting with more game, shorter packs and higher success rate. love the sheep, but as a guide my personal hunts have to be short....i think my family wants to see me sometimes

                        sheep

                        I first hunted sheep in 1970. I still enjoy sheep hunting, the magnificent country and the sparse to non existant human encroachment.

                            As for me! Got to be Elk in the rut with a bow! Nothing like sneaking in a herd of cows getting close enough to that bull so that he is bugling in your ear at 10 yards, sending a cold chill down your spine as he stares you right in the eyes.

                              Eventhough I havnt taken one yet my vote was for Wolf/Coyote. Its a small animal that can be hunted spur of the moment. It doesnt require nearly as much planning as a Moose or Caribou hunt. Everytime I call one in or hear them howl after a call it gets my blood pumping.
