    The prison has a fence around their property, but no problem hunting around the area (off their property). I've killed a lot of birds and bunnies out there. (lately been trying to tag something furry.....)

    What apprx. area are y'all hunting down there? I went down by the Port this fall and didn't see much "bunny habitat". Am I in the wrong spot? Don't really know my way around down there very well.


    Thanks,

    Watch out for private property, but there is quite a lot of huntable land. There are some extensive trail systems too. A lot of the land out there is thick spruce, if you find a stand of birch somewhere, you will find bunnies nearby. Best bet is just doing a lot of walking/scouting and find the tracks. I had several running around me while I was predator calling this last weekend out by the electric transmission lines. I guess they got a little uncomfortable hearing their brethren squeal the death squeal.

    Cool. Thanks for the info Mud!


    I don't really know my way around out there very well, I'm going to have to spend some time figuring this out. Do you need to go all the way down KGB to the road ( I forget the name) that goes to Pt. Mac. or do you just find a spot that isn't private prop. and go exploring?


    Thanks again Mud!

    Go down to Pt. Mack road (the one to the Little su landing), when you get to the stop sign by the snack shop, turn left (south). Go until you see the large electrical towers. There is a small parking lot just beyond where the wires cross the road. Park there and ride wheelers or snowmachines under the power lines. Much of the private property in that area is clearly posted so it isn't much of a problem. You should be able to find some bunnies/fox/coyote/grouse in the woodlines on either side of the easement.

    A mile or two down the trail you will see the sign for the game refuge area boundary. I'm not sure if the easement is always open or if you have to wait for appropriate snow cover to run it. The refuge area is limited though.

    If you are on foot, right around the parking lot would be a good place to start. We have had fox come right into the parking lot while unloading machines before .

    Good luck!
