Kodiak blacktails
« on: December 07, 2009, 03:54:00 AM »
Just got back from Kodiak Island where I took my  first two traditional deer. Used a Toelke Whip, Beman MFX shafts, and a Woodsman broad-head.

A button buck

 

And a doe

A friend and I went to Kodiak in the late '90's.  He was using a rifle and me my bow.  He took a buck and a doe, and I took two bucks and a doe.  I think we had a total of 11" of horn between the three bucks we took...

I know how hard the hunting is there, so congrats on a job well done!

Nice job on two good looking Blacktails. As a Alaskan resident do You have total access to Kodiak Island or do You have to draw tags?

Nobody has to draw tags to hunt deer on Kodiak-OTC

Thanks Steve O, I'm trying to plan a hunt for 2012 to celebrate My 50th birthday and Kodiak Blacktails are in the top 3.

Can a person do unguided hunts there?

Yes you can do DIY hunts there. Limit is 3 deer. Mid November to early Dec seems to be the best time.
