Kodiak Alaska Sea Duck Hunting – we are a beautiful, remote, full service wilderness lodge located on Raspberry Island between Kodiak and Afognak Islands. We have easy access to Harlequin, Barrow’s Goldeneye, Long-tailed Ducks, and White-Winged, Surf, and Black Scoters right in front of the lodge, with other species including Mallard, Wigeon, Bufflehead, Merganser, and Scaup within 15 minutes away by boat. We feature fair chase hunts; utilizing our two man layout boat, species specific decoys, and flexible beach blinds to target these birds in the natural wintering grounds all around our lodge.
Our season runs from October 8 to January 22, focusing on abundant birds that winter in the protected bays, channels and sloughs found among the islands. Most migrant ducks have left Alaska by mid-October, but the remaining ducks, especially sea ducks, acquire bright new plumage that is spectacular by late November. Consequently, our hunts offer a unique combination of sport shooting, fine birds for the table, and handsome ducks that can be mounted as a memento of your Kodiak Raspberry Island hunt.
My family started hosting hunters from this property in the mid-1980s, and I have been hunting these mountains, shores, and the surrounding country since I was young. We know this country, the birds, and the weather, and feel we are best prepared to host you on a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable hunt.
Our lodge is well appointed and comfortable, complete with large open kitchen, spacious dining room, and comfortable lounge. Hunters enjoy heated, private guest cabins with complete bathroom, flannel sheets, and down comforters, as well as our outdoor jetted hot tub and wood fired banya (sauna). Hearty, full, home cooked meals are crafted each day and served family style, focusing on the fuel your body needs to hunt this area.
As well as comfort, we offer the flexibility to hunt a different area each day, transported each morning in one of our fast aluminum catamarans, each with heated, enclosed cabin. Our remote location ensures travel time is minimal and first light hunting in a new place every day is our specialty. One of our favorite hunts is a short walk from the lodge down the beach.
We are retriever friendly and we encourage you to bring your hunting dog if it is healthy, hearty enough for cold weather and well-trained to retrieve.
Thank you for sharing your home, your way of life, and your hospitality. I felt not so much a client as an old friend. I had a wonderful time visiting and spending time with everyone. The week went by way to fast. This was my second hunt with Kodiak Raspberry Island Remote Lodge, both successful in game harvested and wonderful experiences. The hearty meals and warm, dry cabins give inspiration to hike the hills and brave the weather. In five days of hunting I had rain, fog, snow, high winds, sunshine, flat calm water, and seas too rough to venture forth. An experience I will never forget. I hope to visit again my friends on Raspberry Island. ~ Tim V. Alaska
