South Kodiak Adventures would be happy to provide you and
party a once in a lifetime hunting trip on the Island of Kodiak,
Alaska. Alaska is properly known as perhaps the best hunting destination
in the world and our base of operations is located in
the small village of Akhiok, on the most remote part of Kodiak Island,
the Southern tip. Please see the map
of Kodiak Island for our location in Akhiok.
We provide lodging and meals in Akhiok with daily transporter service
for unguided deer and other hunts using our fast 33 foot aluminum cabin
cruiser from which you can be dropped off at a wide variety of places.
Kodiak Adventures can arrange either single specie or combination hunts
that you can dream about for a lifetime. Duck and Goose hunting is always
an added bonus. Licenses and tags can be purchased in either Anchorage
or the City of Kodiak. Combination hunts for deer and ducks are only
done in the Fall.
Most hunts also offer the opportunity for incidental salmon or steelhead
fishing as well as the previously stated fantastic duck hunting. In
fact, rumor has it that hunting for Emperor Geese may once again open
HUNTING, OUR SPECIALTY !
Our operating season is scheduled to begin on the 1st Saturday
in September, with hunts starting each Saturday thereafter through December
12th. Hunts begin in the village of Akhiok on
the Southerrn tip of Kodiak Island on Saturday mornings with your flight
arriving from Anchorage, via City of Kodiak. After storing your gear
at our lodging facilities in Akhiok, we'll take you for a familiarization
tour of some of the hunt area aboard our 33 foot high speed and licensed
vessel, the "Alaska Adventure". This boat can cruise at 30+
knots, is equipped with 110v power, stereo, state of the art electronics,
diesel furnace, and many other features added to make your hunt more
enjoyable. Real hunting begins the next morning.
area offers a wide variety of hunting options from beach hunting to
hiking into mountain saddles to stand hunting with a rifle or a bow
(or hand gun). The island supports over 100,000 deer and having lived
in the Village our entire lives, we know where to find them. Days start
off with a hearty breakfast, then boat transportation to that day's
chosen location. Hunters are usually dropped off in pairs with each
pair given a hand held radio for safety or early pick up. We pack a
hearty lunch for each hunter to take with him each day. After pick up
by the boat at the end of the day, our hunters can look forward to a
hot dinner back in Akhiok that may include New York Steak, marinated
pork tenderloin, Baked Ham, and of course, Venison and Salmon!
early weeks of the season offer silver and sockeye salmon fishing. Duck
hunting begins October 8 with many species of unique ducks available.

expertise and years of experience help to ensure you an Alaskan experience
