Kodiak Island duck hunting runs from mid October to mid January, but our outfitter typically focuses their duck hunts in December. This time of years there are lots of ducks wintering 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. This is a tremendous time of year to collect a variety of sought after birds in their finest winter plumage; all the while hunting in remote Kodiak, Alaska.

Kodiak Island has good numbers of Harlequin; Barrow’s Goldeneye; Long-tailed (Old Squaw) Ducks; and White-Winged, Surf, and Black Scoters as well as Mallard; Wigeon; Bufflehead; Merganser; and Scaup. Kodiak Island also has King Eiders and Common Eiders, but they are rare. Consider yourself lucky if you end up with one.

If you’re interested in a lot of shooting, the Goldeneye, Mallard, and Widgeon hunting is phenomenal.

The bays around Kodiak Island offer good protection for the wintering ducks, but keep in mind, this is Alaska duck hunting in the middle of the winter. Come prepared for wind, rain, snow and cold.
