Sitka Blacktail Deer
Offered by Joe Klutsch
We hunt Sitka Blacktail deer in the same area we hunt goats and bears on Kodiak. Quite often our brown bear or mountain goat hunters will choose to take a Sitka deer that they see during their hunt or will spend an extra day or two after they harvest their animal looking for a nice buck to go after. Compared to goat or brown bear, deer are much more relaxing to hunt and far easier. A nice buck can usually be found on any given day and a hunter can expect to get a nice buck in a few days if he is willing to hike around and cover the low alpine terrain that the big bucks favor.
