Our deer hunts begin and end on
Saturdays. You will arrive in Kodiak via Alaska Airlines (www.alaskaair.com)
or Era Aviation (www.flyera.com)
on the Friday before the hunt. You will need to get a room in Kodiak
for the night. There are several hotels in town. The Comfort Inn is
located right next to the airport as well our Air Charter Service.
They can be called directly at (907) 487-2700 or online at
www.choicehotels.com. Once in Kodiak you will need to call Island
Air Service at (907) 487-4596 (www.kodiakislandair.com)
and let them know where you are staying. They will pick up you party
for the first flight out Saturday morning. Island Air will already
have the name of your party. The air charter will be prepaid and is
included in the cost of your hunt.
You will be flown
directly to the boat on the south end of the island. For the
rest of the week it’s nothing but hunting, relaxing, some fishing, and
enjoying everything a hunt like this has to offer. Normally the
hunting is wrapped up by Friday afternoon when we head to Alitak.
Alitak has a cannery where we tie up the night, give you a chance to
bone out your meat, and pack up your gear for the flight out the
can always play a factor in your hunt. There can be flight delays
both inbound and outbound. There is a satellite phone on the boat for
