Sitka Blacktail Deer hunting on Kodiak Island is one of the best hunts Alaska has to offer. Arguably the most beautiful of the deer species, coupled with Kodiaks breathtaking scenery, turns this bucket list hunt into an annual event for most clients. Let Alaska Premier Sportfishing show you Alaska hunting from the luxury of our all-inclusive vessel Venturess. The Kodiak Archipeligo is home to vast numbers of Sitka Blacktail deer, being aboard the floating base camp, F/V Venturess allows easy access to hundreds of miles of coastline not accessible by traditional drop-off hunting, or other operations that "homestead" the same hunting grounds year after year. Gourmet meals, comfortable lodging and all the amenities of most land based operations, all in the wilds of Alaska. Each day you will wake up, eat a hearty breakfast and be transported to the hunting location of choice. This do-it-yourself hunt takes you directly into the heart of beautiful coastal Kodiak Alaska. A quick skiff ride to and from the Venturess, equipped with a provided radio for boat to shore communications, gets you into the field quickly. Done hunting for the day, simply call the skiff on the radio and they will transport you back to the Venturess for you to try your hand at fishing or a well deserved nap. Several mild snow years have the deer population extremely healthy with lots of mature bucks. Up to three tags are available for purchase onboard the vessel making this a popular freezer filling trip as well. Known around the deer hunting world as the best of all venison, Sitka Blacktail are prized table fare as well as trophies!
