Alaska's Best Deer Hunting

Where is the best spot for Kodiak deer hunting? Located on the south side of Kodiak Island is the remote native village of Old Harbor.  Old Harbor boasts some of the best Sitka Black Tail deer populations in Alaska.  Sitka Black Tail is one of the smallest species of the deer family that thrives on Kodiak Island.Kodiak Alaska Deer Hunting trip

Although the Kodiak deer hunting season opens August 1, we do not start hunting until November to mid December and both Doe and Bucks are open.  The temperature begins to drop.  The snow begins to fall in the higher elevations and the deer begin to move down to the lower elevation. Bucks are beginning to gather their does and go into rut.  These combined conditions make this time of year ideal for black tail hunting.

Due to the past three winter’s extremely mild temperatures, 2016 will prove to be an outstanding year to successfully harvest your Sitka Black Tail deer. There is very little Kodiak deer hunting pressure in Old Harbor. The area is very remote and the mild terrain will provide you with a challenging and rewarding hunt.

We base out hunts out of the Kodiak Sportsman’s Lodge. Each morning we will transport you to your hunting location for the days hunt.  We will pick you up at a pre-designated location and return you to the lodge for a hot shower and a fantastic Alaskan meal where you can relax and share your Kodiak deer hunting stories. After you harvest your buck, you can add to your Alaskan experience by hunting fox, water fowl or fishing for winter King Salmon and halibut.

Our goal is to provide you with a first class hunt in remote Alaska that very few people have experienced.

What Our Visitors Are Saying

"Old Harbor is one of my favorite places in Alaska. The people are so warm, and the fishing is exceptional. KSL nailed it. They give 5 star service with some of the best, gourmet meals I've had anywhere. My room was right on the beach and was very clean and well kept. Our fishing guide was a lot of fun and made sure that everyone caught their fill of fish. KSL took care of everything. I just showed up in Kodiak and the rest was handled."

Ron U., Chapel Hill, NC

"An A+ fishing experience. Have booked with them more than once. Fished with friends & family. Without question one of the best experiences I have ever had. Wide variety of fish. First rate equipment. Experienced guides. Custom built boats protect you from the weather. Most liberal fishing regulations in Alaska. Off the beaten path. Great scenery. Not Crowded."

Harvey P., Greater Cincinnati

"The sportsman's lodge is a great place! The guides know the water and work to put you on the fish. You won't starve for sure are the food rivals most fine dining establishments I've been too. I have been there twice on business and someday would love to take my family. One of my Clients also has mentioned he would love to bring his wife up for a visit.Stayed September 2014, traveled on business."

Dennisgroom, Middleton, Idaho

"For a great time fishing in Alaska, look no further than the Kodiak Sportsman Lodge. Gary and his professional crew put you on the fish! The food is great and the staff at the lodge make you feel like you're a part of the family. All this and the scenic beauty of Kodiak."

Susan Harvey, OR Medical Director at Medical University of South Carolina

"Gary and the crew at the Sportsmans Lodge in Old Harbor, AK are wonderful hosts. The fishing in Old Harbor can't be beat!"

Dave Jarrett, COO & Executive VP, Old Harbor Native Corporation

"Gary assisted us very professionally and gave us the best time and adventure throughout the trip."

Adrian Gaspar & Scandia Romana

"This will not be a usual sort of recommendation...instead it is the sort of recommendation of a service, that is, guided fishing and hunting at Old Harbor, Kodiak Island, Alaska. I recommend him and the Kodiak Sportsman Lodge highly. You wil catch some very fine fish (King and Silver Salmon in season, Ling Cod in season, and Halibut are the primary game fish, with a good assortment of other varieties of fish if you wish.) in the Sitkadalek sound and will be witness to some of the finest scenery available. The chef is superb at the lodge and the accomodations are much better than most you will see in Alaskan lodges in the mid-price range. I recommend Gary and the Lodge to you highly. Try him, you'll like it, I guarantee."

Willis Starnes, CEO of Shepherds' Outreach Network
