In the Sitka area, on nearby Admiralty Island, the grizzly bear population is so big that there is one bear per square mile.
The remoteness of the island emphasizes the stunning natural environment. Just south of town is Mount Edgecumbe, a dormant volcano, which towers over the sea at 3,200 fee t. Peak 5390 is the highest peak on the island at 5,390 feet. The mountains are home to plenty of streams and rivers if you want to kayak or fish. The weather in Sitka is moderate. The town gets an average rainfall of 86 inches and 39 inches of snowfall. The temperature ranges from 62 degrees Fahrenheit in August to 30 degrees Fahrenheit in January.
Sitka is surrounded by the 17 million acre, Tongass National Forest - the largest national forest in the United States. Tongass National Forest stretches from the ocean to the Canadian border. There are tons of huts and cabins to visit in the National Forest. The area is home to salmon, bald eagles, moose, black bear, and grizzly bears in a variety of eco-systems.
The prime time for hunting deer and goat is September to November. The hunting season for bear is spring and fall, but spring is the best. Be sure to check the current Alaska Hunting Regulations before planning your trip. If you're in stunning Sitka to fish, the summer months are a great time to take a charter fishing trip or to visit a fishing lodge in search of salmon, trout, or halibut.

HUNTING SITKA BLACK TAIL DEER
ODOCOILEUS HEMIONUS SITKENSIS
We hunt these rain forest dwellers during the peak of the November rut. Calling with a blade of grass is the method we use. It's not uncommon to call 6 bucks in a day. Southeast Alaska is famous for their red-horned bucks. They've been transplanted to many islands such as Kodiak, although their origin is Sitka, Alaska. All hunts are fair chase, spot and stalk.
Wolves are abundant on Kuiu Island and may be easily added to your hunt. The wolf is one of the world's most fascinating and well-studied animals. Alaskans are fortunate to have an estimated 7,700-11,200 wolf are in Alaska. Wolves have never been threatened or endangered in Alaska, and inhabit all of their traditional range except within the largest cities.
Gray or black wolves are most common, and the relative abundance of each color phase varies over time and from place to place. Most adult male wolves in Alaska weigh from 85 to 115 pounds (38.6-52.3 kg), but they occasionally reach 145 pounds (65.3 kg). Females average 5 to 10 pounds (2-5 kg) lighter than males and rarely weigh more than 110 pounds (50 kg). Wolves reach adult size by about 1 year of age, and the largest wolves occur where prey is abundant year round. All hunts are fair chase, spot and stalk.
