Left Whittier Friday around 11 o'clock and made a smooth run out to Montague. Not a breath of wind the whole way and hot sun shining through the windshield. uploadfromtaptalk1439397860993.jpg
Made it to Montague about 2 o'clock and proceeded to get ready to hike for the night above the trees. Got everything loaded in the dingy and headed to shore with my wife. Took a slow 2 hour hike to get above the tree line stopping numerous times to gorge ourselves with the blueberries that covered the island and glass for deer. It didn't take long to spot the first group of four deer high above us, no horns on these. Made it above treeline and set up camp with an awesome view of Port Chalmers below. uploadfromtaptalk1439397156596.jpg
Spotted several deer and did a practice stalk on a couple does and got within 20 yards undetected. That night we spotted almost 20 deer and only 2 had horns we went after one of those but a switch in wind at the last minute blew it for us. Went back to camp had dinner and called it a night. The next morning we were awoke by the sound of bears fighting below our camp, they had an argument that lasted long enough for us to get dressed andwe tried to move down to a vantage point and see them but they were in the thick brush so we went back to the tent for breakfast. We started spotting deer again immediately but like the day before none were bucks. The Bears eventually came up out of the trees and we got to see the two of them still arguing about something. They finally separated and one came by the tent at about 150yds caught our wind and left in a hurry.
The weather forecast had changed from great to ugly for Sunday and Monday for the ocean but the pws forecast only had Sunday being bad. I didn't want to be stuck out there so we came back to the boat and headed to naked Island to hunt for the next two days.
