Sitka Deer Hunting

Sitka Blacktail Deer are native to the wet, coastal rain forests of S.E. Alaska but were transplanted to the lighter rainfall area of the Kodiak & Afognak Islands circa 1930. They are smaller & stockier with a shorter face than other members of the black-tail group. Typical bucks range from 120# to 220#. Normal antler development is 3-4 points/side with very few scoring more than 110 points in Boone & Crockett record book.

With the first heavy frost, many deer in the high alpine and sub-alpine descend to the upper forests. With snowfall, usually in November & December, they move down to the coastal fringe and beaches. Rut occurs during late November.

The season is between August 1 and December 31, but the best hunting is during November and December. You are allowed 3 Deer per hunter and they can be hunted at the same time as Elk, Bear and Ducks.
