These are all locations that we have personally vetted and picked, and work closely with throughout each year. We communicate all details/logistics and make the process smooth for our clients and the outfitters. We assist with all licenses/tags, gear lists, logistics, etc..
We know that once you decide on booking a group, you’ll feel pressure hoping everything goes smoothly and everyone has great feedback. That’s why we do what we do. We know this is very important for you and your clients, and building closer relationships while on these trips together…is a priority.
Some of these options have 5 star lodges/food and that’s their specialty. Whereas others have 5 star service in their field, but may be lodged in more rustic cabins or traditional elk hunt style wall tents with cots and wood stoves. This is where we come in- and discuss your needs/preferences, and get you the best options to review and then go over them with you and answer any questions you may have.

We depart on seven-day vessel based Sitka Blacktail Deer hunts across the entire Kodiak Archipelago.
