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!

From: Beendare

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.

From: KDC

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!

Hunting with Pav and KDC this November. First time to Alaska so looking forward to it.

From: Juan_ID

I had never really given a hunt for Sitka blacktail much thought. After having talked with a friend who’s going this November and jumping back on this forum it really makes me want to try and make it happen. May need to start trying to save some money to try and make it happen sooner rather than later. Good luck to all who are going this fall!
