Potro, that was on Kodiak with a bunch of other Bowsiters. Despite being with them, it was still a great trip! :-)

Man that place looks spectacular and looks like fun.

Have a great hunt you guys.

I’ll be on Kodiak in October. I hope to shoot a deer, but am first going for goat.

From: t-roy
20-Jul-22
Midwest……there seems to be a common denominator on both trips….

Good luck with the goats (and deer), Ike!

To be clear, I chose 2022 for a rut hunt due to the fact Indiana's firearm season opener falls on the earliest possible date... November 12th. Next year, Indiana bowhunters gain almost a week, with the firearms opener being November 18th.

I've hunted bear with Roark / HOC...and always figured my first Kodiak hunt would be on the Outer Limits...but the dates I needed were long gone when I checked...well over a year ago. Transporter for this hunt is Rogue Expeditions. I've never hunted with RE before, but booked the hunt based on multiple recommendations from good friends.

Are you doing a boat based hunt, PAV?

From: pav
20-Jul-22
Yeah Troy...we're doing the boat-based hunt out of Old Harbor.

Next year once again for me!

Im leaving for AK in less than 2 weeks…but I tore my achilles heel training with a heavy pack….. seriously hobbled up, so I will probably be doing more fishing and hunting unfortunately.

I'll be in Kodiak hunting with PAV. Really looking forward to the adventure.

From: Nick Muche

Pav, you’ll be in good hands. I’ve done three trips with those guys.

JSW that is about as pretty a buck as I can imagine. Now you have me Dreamin. October can't get here soon enough.

Ed, Good luck! Post up pictures!!

From: JTreeman

Good luck everyone. I’ll be very interested to see how everyone does and how they feel the current deer population (On Kodiak particularly) is doing. When I was there last year I felt the herd was down considerably compared to previous trips. But I also suspect that could be location dependent to a good degree too.

To be honest ... I'd rather have the numbers down. Too many deer can be a problem. Ed F

Kodiak August 18, 2 bow hunters and 10 free big game tags in our pockets. Gotta love being an Alaskan resident!
