KODIAK - A Hunt For Sitka Deer

An Adventure In Alaska

Have you ever dreamed of hunting the remote wilderness of Alaska? If so, look no further than Kodiak Island. Sitting off the Southern coast of Alaska, Kodiak is well known for being inhabited by some of the largest brown bears in North America. But if bears aren’t your thing, the island is also home to the Sitka Black-tailed deer, a smaller and stockier relative of those found in the Pacific Northwest.

Last year, employees from Leupold along with Cole Kramer, Brian Call, and friends embarked on the hunt of a lifetime pursuing Sitka deer, foxes, and more. With bow, rifle, and pistol in hand, the guys managed to notch numerous tags and avoid an unexpected natural disaster that could have de-railed the entire trip, and even cost them their lives.

Follow along on their relentless journey to Kodiak, Alaska in this five-part limited series. Watch the series premiere on Sunday, September 8th at 6pm PST, with additional episodes airing daily throughout the rest of the week.
