Alaska Sitka Blacktail Deer

Alaska's Sitka Blacktail Deer is one of the smallest of the North American deer species. In spite of it's smallness, it is a strong hardy animal that is native to the wet, coastal rainforests of Southeast Alaska. They are now well established on up into Prince William Sound and on the Islands of Kodiak and Afognak. A large buck generally weighs around 150 to 190 pounds and has antlers that are rather small but normally having 3 or 4 points per side. During the Summer months the Sitka Blacktail will primarily be found in the higher elevations in open alpine country. As the weather cools and the heavy frosts hit the slopes the Deer begin a downward migration into the trees and brush on the lower slopes. The rut begins in late October and peaks in mid November. The winter snows normally arrive during this time period and the Deer move lower, eventually concentrating in a narrow band adjacent to the beaches where the canopy of trees and brush give some protection resulting in a decreased snow depth. These conditions are prefect and provide a prime opportunity for a great Sitka Blacktail Deer hunting experience. With the Deer concentrated near the beaches the Hunting Vessel will be situated in areas with a lot of Deer activity. Often a good buck will be seen through the picture windows and then the guide and hunter take the skiff to the beach to begin their stalk. Day hikes are also very effective and produce some great trophies. Some guides like to use this method of hunting as it gives them a chance to use their Deer calls. It can lead to success, however more than a few have been successful in calling in more than Deer. The hunters have had the thrill, or was it panic, of a seeing a big Kodiak Brown Bear up close.

Some of our hunting range for Sitka Blacktail Deer is in an area that is also home to a small herd of Roosevelt Elk. For those hunters that want to add this trophy to your collection it is sometimes possible to hunt this animal at the same time. Let us know well in advance so that arrangements can be made to secure a permit.

Hunting from a comfortable vessel is simply great! You can shoot more than one buck and enjoy a lot of other hunting activity for Red Fox, Cross Fox, Sea Ducks, Ptarmigan and also get in some Halibut fishing. All during the hunt you are enjoying the comfort and safety of an ocean going vessel. You have a warm bed to sleep in, hot showers are available, and there is plenty of room for drying your clothing. We serve great meals every day including New York Steaks, sea foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, nice desserts, lots of snacks, and the beverage of your choice. You will observe abundant wildlife and hunt a spectacular country that is rich in history. Join us for a great hunting experience and add this special trophy to your collection.
