Outdoor Kodiak: Traveling for deer
As the road system deer season draws to a close, it’s time to plan hunts into the remote regions of Kodiak that will remain open through the end of the year. Even if you have venison in the freezer, hunts to outlying areas are not to be missed. For me, the road system season has always been a war...

Outdoor Kodiak: Final days of deer season
The general deer season for the road system closes in roughly two weeks on Oct. 31. Do you have fresh venison in the freezer? If not, you had better get busy or start making plans for alternate hunts. Sure you can move off the road system or qualify for the primitive weapon season that extends th...

Outdoor Kodiak: Hunting for ducks on opening day
In recent days it’s become hard to focus on fishing. There are so many distractions! Wherever I go, I’m seeing ducks. Sometimes lots of them. With Kodiak’s duck season opening Wednesday who can blame me? Kodiak’s opening day is often a bit of a disappointment. The weather is usually better for be...

Outdoor Kodiak: Late season dollies
My fishing partner paused in putting on his waders and pointed downstream. I could here it too. Several fishermen were laughing and cheering over splashing that was obviously a silver salmon. I nodded and pointed upstream. He grinned at me and pointed to the edge of the river. A fresh bear pile s...

Outdoors: The long season for silvers
Isn’t it great to have so many silver salmon at hand! This is the season we’ve all been waiting for. But in truth the luster has worn off a bit, hasn’t it? We’ve all caught lots by now, and the crowds have been a hassle. Is it time to think about moving on? That’s not a bad idea if you have anoth...

Outdoor Kodiak: Transition deer hunts
If you haven’t been out for deer in a few weeks, you’re in for a surprise. All those golden leaves on the cottonwoods and willows signal important changes in the deer and how you hunt them. August deer are wearing their light summer coats. They’re more orange than brown, and against a sunny green...

Outdoor Kodiak: Mooching madness
I’ve been hearing lots of trollers moan about the difficulty in locating and catching silvers this fall. I have to admit that I’m not seeing many jumpers in the bays or offshore, but does that really mean there aren’t many silvers around? When we’ve trolled for silvers in the usual ways and place...

Outdoor Kodiak: Ptarmigan season is here
Well, I did it again. I let Aug. 10 slip right by without notice. That’s two years in a row! Why is the date significant? Kodiak’s ptarmigan season opens on Aug. 10. I’m a big fan of ptarmigan hunting, but the season opens about the same time silvers arrive along local beaches and halibut fishing...
