Southeast Alaska's Admiralty Island has a great population of Sitka blacktail deer and our outfitter here is a year-round resident of the island. You will fly by float plane from Juneau, Alaska to a cove on the remote southern end of the island. The hunts are based from a very comfortable 5,000 square foot log home, with the hunting areas being reached via boat or ATV's. There is a LOT of deer in this area and success rates of 100% are common. Living here on a permanent basis for more than two decades is a tremendous advantage, as it has allowed the outfitter to gain vast personal knowledge of the deer and the areas of the island they inhabit. This is a fun, highly successful and inexpensive hunt, which is great for father & sons, or just a couple of hunting buddies. Includes two bucks.
