So you want to go hunting for Sitka black-tailed deer, and your plan is to go to Kodiak Island, where the landscape is breathtaking and the deer are plentiful. Are you going to camp in a tent? Rent a boat to get around and explore the best hunting ground?
Kodiak is home to a hardy and abundant population of Sitka black-tailed deer, as well as the Kodiak brown bear, which is one of the two largest bears alive today! There’s plenty to think about when preparing for your hunting trip.
Just imagine this: having the luxury of transportation to the best hunting ground, coming in after your hunt to a warm meal, and processing your game under a safe, covered shelter. You may want to relax and share hunting stories, watch a movie, or just kick back and read a book before retiring to a warm bed.
Captain Chad Sorenson can provide all of these things for you aboard the F/V Naknek Spirit. He will take you to the best areas for hunting Sitka black-tailed deer around Greater Deadman Bay . Captain Chad has over 30 years of hunting and fishing experience, and it is his passion to provide his guests with a safe and unforgettable hunting adventure in the great Alaskan outdoors.
Hunters will enjoy the comfort and safety of at least three hearty meals a day and heated sleeping quarters. No worries of attracting bears, as game will be loaded aboard the F/V Naknek Spirit via crane, where a covered, heated area is provided for dressing your game. The boat comfortably houses six people, so after a day out hunting you can enjoy some dinner and downtime with friends.
We will provide you with mobility to prime hunting areas via the F/V Naknek Spirit, as well as a ride to shore on our rigid-hull skiff. You will be provided comfortable accommodations and a place to dress your game after the hunt.
You will be in charge of your own hunt and gear. You will want to bring the weapon of your choice, as well as a hunting knife and game bags or boxes. Make sure to have a current hunting license and proper tags. We’ll take care of keeping you comfortable and getting you to the best areas for your hunt.
$3,000 per person, limit of 6 hunters per week.
Weather permitting, we plan to change out hunters every Friday. It is highly encouraged that you arrive the night prior to your flight out.
