Vessel based DIY hunting allows the capable self-guided hunter to concentrate on a successful Kodiak deer hunting trip, knowing that we take care of the transportation, meals, and lodging for them. The current ADFG regulations allow for the harvest of up to three deer per person in unit 8 Kodiak-Shelikof. There are also abundant silver, red and cross fox on the island, along with some of the best sea duck hunting available. We usually top it off with some halibut fishing when the opportunity presents itself!
