Alaska Sitka Blacktail Deer Hunt 10492
One of the more underrated hunts in North America is the Sitka Blacktail hunt. The rain-forest of Southeast Alaska offer superb hunting for Sitka Blacktail Deer. Take advantage of early season hunts which take place above the tree line in high alpine country or try the late season hunts in both the timber and muskegs. Most hunts are fly outs and take place on Prince of Wales Island. August and September alpine hunts offer the chance for good weather with bucks feeding in the lush vegetation offered at this time of the year. Some bucks may still have velvet on the antlers and sleeker reddish colored summer coats. Late October and November present bucks looking their best with heavy winter coats, thick necks, and polished antlers. During this time you will hunt lower elevations and use calls as the deer are usually in the rut. All deer hunts offer the opportunity to combine fresh or saltwater fishing, and possibly Black Bear or waterfowl if you wish to extend your Sitka Blacktail hunt.
