Message From the Owner:
Hello & thank you for your interest in our service! My background as a guide started in 2002 fresh out of high school from the Midwest & seeking adventure on Kodiak Island.
I was very blessed to have started visiting Kodiak Island since the age of eleven to visit family that was there as Coast Guard getting the opportunity to hunt & fish a few times before moving in 2002. I was hired as a greenhorn packer for Mountain Goat, Sitka Blacktail Deer & Brown Bear. I wanted to soak up all the knowledge I could for Kodiak & over time expanded my experience throughout the state guiding hunters for moose, sheep, caribou, & grizzly bears. Visiting many of the top outfitter's lodges, cabins & tent camps I was able to see what worked & what didn't, what clients were pleased with & what they weren't... A fantastic experience to say the least. In 2006 I started Kramer's Kodiak Guide Service, a guide service mainly focusing on "hardcore" backpack Mountain Goat & Sitka Blacktail deer hunts & a few brown bear hunts in my areas. I never wanted to cut ties with many of the top outfitters I guided for especially for Brown Bear, so I continued guiding & bringing hunters to them on Kodiak & the Alaska Peninsula, where I believed each had the very best areas & offered a wide variety of accommodations for the hunts.
Throughout time going to many outdoor shows I developed many relationships with amazing outfitters throughout the world & have gone & visited their camps hunting myself & guiding hunters & expanding my knowledge world wide.
When my hunters sit in camp with me & ask me advice on where to go, Its not taken lightly. I want them to safely come back & hunt with me in my camps or ask for my advice again & again with great results.
Thank you for your time & we look forward to sharing an Adventure with you!
