    Default Deer Hunting

    Has anyone ever hunted Deer in December? From what I understand it would be a meat hunt as the antlers have already dropped and they're hanging out down low on the beach. Is that true? Anyone ever done it?

    Default December Deer

    I hunted Kodiak in Dec 03. There was already a bunch of snow, and we saw far more deer on the beaches than we saw up high, but we did see some up high. One buck I shot (small fork) had secure antlers, I could drag him even after he tumbled a bit. The better buck had two antlers when I shot him, and none when he stopped rolling. But we recovered both, and they were reattached for a beautiful mount - a nice 6-point. You should probably go down there with the mindset of a meat hunt, then be pleasantly surprised if you get a good buck with solid antlers. Or go earlier if the trophy value is important. Don't know if PWS would be similar, no experience there.

    Not very much daylight and the weather can be nasty. But if you have the means to get to the deer it's a good way to go.
