Most of you that follow my blog know that for the past twelve years I have been hunting the Sitka black-tailed deer in hopes of taking a buck that scores high enough to make the Boone & Crockett Record Book. I have taken two super bucks that have come close but none have hit the mark.
Deer aren’t animals that hunters in the “Lower 48” think of when they think of Alaska. For sure they weren’t the animals I was thinking of when I arrived back in the 60’S. I didn’t give them a thought until the early 2000’s, but after hunting them over the last ten years I find that hunting deer on Kodiak is a blast. Many thanks to Paul Chervenak and Dana Bertolini for getting me fired up over these little guys. Also to Rolan and Jo of Sea Hawk Air for the great flying service they have always provided over the last nine years. You can also go to my hunting video page and watch the deer hunting video for more detailed photos of the hunts. Follow along with me, my family and my friends on some special deer hunts.
