Raspberry Island and South West Afognak Island Roosevelt Elk, Sitka Black-Tailed Deer, and Kodiak Brown Bear Hunting in the Kodiak Island Archipelago, Alaska – we are a beautiful, remote, full service wilderness lodge located on Raspberry Island between Kodiak and Afognak Islands. We are in the middle of the Raspberry Island and South West Afognak Island Roosevelt Elk Herds, the Southwest Afognak/Raspberry Island Kodiak Brown Bear Game Management Unit, and Sitka Black-Tailed Deer have visited our yard, and are dispersed throughout the area. My family started hosting hunters from this property in the mid 1980s, and I have been hunting these mountains and the surrounding country since I was young. We know this country, the animals, 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 these animals in this country. Game is hung in our large meat house safe from bears, and hunters are welcome to check your zero at our 100 yard shooting range.
As well as comfort, we offer the flexibility to hunt a different drainage each day, transported each morning in our 37’ aluminum catamaran 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 right behind the lodge.
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
