    Default naked

    worst thing about naked is all those briary little bushes you have to go thru to get up and into the great clearings. they hurt like h#$$ when you dont have any clothes on!!

    So I take it you had to go high for the deer? When did you hunt them?

    Default Over hunted

    Over hunted since the Whittier tunnel. Deer are going to be up high and work down as the snow pushes them down.

    Default Done Perry

    North Perry I think is more open by every thing was on the South End? Maybe thats why to open. Some of the best Blue Berry, but Oct 26 may be to late. I don't think I'll find any the first week of Oct, but I'm taking Bisquick and Mrs Buttersworth just in case.

    been there a couple of times and have only seen 3-4 doe's and you will not gain much altitude on this island. it might be 600ft above sea level but don't quote me on that.
    why not press on to montegue island? it's not much farther, and much better hunting.

    Default Naked

    There are decent amounts of deer on Naked, but you need to be proficient at hunting in brush and timber as there are few opennings.
    Peak and Story Islands also have a few. Story has a few nice meadows if you anchor near the old fox farm on the south side of the island and head up.

    Default Almost all of them have deer

    I finally broke down and asked the question to fish and game on which islands have deer on them. I looked all over the internet and found nothing except for Monty and Hitchenbrook. Fish and game told me that almost every island in unit 6d has deer on it. Namely, Naked, Storey, Hawkins, Green, Perry, and even a deer coming off the Dutch Group. Hard to believe the Dutch Group, but thats what I heard. Word from ADFG is that the deer flourish on the big islands. They will be on the little islands, but not as plentiful.

    Default little islands

    They use the little islands to island hop or just to get away from predators. When you're swimming from island to island, you might be thankful for a rest stop. There's a little island in the mouth of Esther Bay that can't be over an acre. One summer there was a doe and her fawn on it for a couple weeks. I think she was just protecting her fawn from bears.

    I've seen sign on big Culross Island also. Tons of droppings and tracks. Also I recall seeing tracks on the mainland near Mink Island. Who knows where they will turn up next.

    I know where they are on the mainland... Doesn't take much imagination to figure out where they travel, imagination or knowing people who have lived in the area for 20 years...
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
