You neglected to include Mike Munsey of Munsey's Brown Bear Camp in your list. He is one of the few land-and-water-based licensed guides on Kodiak Island, and he has been in the hunting and guiding business there for 50 years. His experience shows in all aspects of his operation. Munsey has a great hunting area on the side of Kodiak closest to the mainland, in an area known as Amook Pass. His remote lodge sits on the shores of Uyak Bay and features several cabins with private baths, hot and cold running water and top-of-the-line food. Unlike some of the `guides' who simply drop you off, Munsey knows every wrinkle in the landscape and knows where the bucks hang out, as evidenced by his own Top 10 Sitka that hangs on the lodge wall. He has a long history of producing SCI Record Book bucks for his clients. I took three on one trip with him. Munsey's guides are among the best I have hunted with anywhere, and all of the equipment at Munsey's camp works.
Munsey currently has a handful of openings this fall from November 25-30, which is at the tail end of the rut. If they get snow by then, as they should, the bucks will be down from the mountains. Hunt costs are $4,000, 1 x 1; $6,000, 2 x 1. That does not include an overnight in Kodiak. You can contact Munsey's Bear Camp .
