Cole Kramer
It’s not uncommon for Cole Kramer to come face-to-face with a dahl sheep, mountain goat, sitka deer, or even a 10 ft. brown bear. In fact, it’s what he lives for. As a professional hunting guide on Kodiak Island, Cole’s experienced his fair share of steep terrain and harsh weather conditions, but those challenges have only fueled his fire for getting out there and continuing his conservation efforts. We’re honored anytime Cole has a minute catch up with us, so kickback, relax and get a glimpse into his world.

Q:

What goes through your head when you first wake up in the morning before hunting?

A:

I need coffee.

Q:

Where is your favorite place to hunt?

A:

The mountains of Kodiak Island, Alaska.

Q:

How do you up your game year after year?

A:

I up my game year after year by improving my knowledge of my hunting areas and the wildlife that lives within. Also, I’m constantly adapting to the changing times, needs of my network current, and future clientele. Lastly,but one of my favorites,is working with companies to come up with new innovative product or to improve their current products.

Q:

If you could do anything better, what would it be?

A:

Business wise, it would be getting back to potential clients or people reaching out to ask questions about my business or life. I need to hire a secretary! It’s difficult when I’m in the mountains for weeks at a time and the last thing I want to do is get in town and return emails and call people! But it’s a very necessary task!Hobby wise, snowboarding! Love snowboarding. I don’t get to do it enough! Hoping that will change in the future!

Q:

What part of you, or what you do, reflects a spirit of restlessness?

A:

The way I conduct my hunts and always pushing to learn, adapt, and prepare my hunters for the adventure of their lifetime.

Q:

If there is any love-hate relationship with any aspect of what you do, can you describe what that is?

A:

Sometimes when being out on back-to-back hunts for months on end, there comes a time to hunt for yourself especially if it’s in the middle of the season or your body is screaming at you to rest because it really needs it. Sometimes you power through, sometimes you rest.

Q:

What sound or noise do you love?

A:

The sound of geese flying overhead. I am happiest when in the mountains with friends and a heavy pack.

Q:

Who are your heroes? Who do you look up to?

A:

Jesus Christ, because he saved us all. The military men and women that protect our freedoms. Firefighters, I grew up going to fires with my dad who is a fire chief and has been a firefighter for over 43 years. Grandpa Glen, because he took the time to take me hunting when no one in my actual family hunted.
