I'm considering a short hunt over the four day Thanksgiving break, and got to thinking about deer in Southeast.
A couple years back I visited a forum member in Sitka for a short three-day deer hunt. Unfortunately, it became a one-day hunt after I got stranded in Juneau for two days due to a cancelled flight. I hunted Douglas Island for a day while stuck, and we had a great day via boat out of Sitka once I got there, but I didn't get a feel for the road system opportunities in Sitka and didn't see much action in Juneau.
So...is anyone willing to tell me if there is a town where a fella could have a reasonable time walking in the woods via a rental car over the Thanksgiving time frame? I'd head to Petersburg, as I know some folks there and love the area, but the season is closed there by that point. I have zero experience with the other towns where such a quick trip would be possible - Ketchikan, Wrangell, etc. I'd appreciate any thoughts, even if those involve dissuading me from the idea altogether.
