There are two Kodiak hunts
Spring (April or May)
Fall (late October - November)
The weather during the Spring hunts in April and May will find the temperatures running from 30-60 degrees F. The bears begin emerging from hibernation in April and the pelts are heavy and in prime condition. The hunting may be a bit more extreme because of snow conditions. May finds all bears out of hibernation.
The October/November fall season has less daylight hours and will find temperatures ranging form the low 20s to upper 40s F. Pelt hair length may be a bit shorter then spring but bears are more numerous and Sitka Blacktail Deer (a fine side trophy) are available for the hunter.
