Glad to be on OD, I have watched this forum for years while dreaming of finding an AK job. Now I finally have something to ask the forum.
A few friends from AK and I (an outsider) are going to have a water taxi take us to Knight Island mid September for nine days. We are going to hunt and fish until our feet blister heavily, then do some more. Our focus is deer and bear, with mildy conflicting priorities on which one. A halibut or salmon would be nice on the last few days (so they don't spoil before we get back). We are going to have a zodiac to run around in.
What we need is a little advice on location. Our thought now is Bay of Isles, becuase it has a lot of shoreline, it is further away (so maybe less people), and there is a freshwater lake. But we think the wind will come from the South, and the deer will be up high on the leeward side, so maybe we can save a little on water taxi fees and head to the north side, like drier bay.
We'll take any help we can get (even if it is not specific). Also, if you don't mind sharing, but don't want your honey hole immortalized online, send me a PM.
