    Kodiak in late August has been my favorite so far. The deer are above treeline and the bears are down on the rivers on fish. I know plenty of people that have been very successful archery hunting that time of year on Kodiak.

    I know that Prince of Wales Island has great deer also, but I haven't been there yet.

    There are no deer on POW, there are no deer on POW, there are no deer on POW!

    That should take care of that.

    Johnnie will agree there are no deer on POW, unless he's talking to clients.

    Did the two locals from Wrangell run out of deer too compete with. A long time dual to see who could fill the most proxy tags each season. Disgusting numbers!

    Honestly......this is where the Kodiak deer came from.

    I don't care what island I'm on really. When your up in the moutains and your looking over a small herd of em, thats good enough for me.

    I've seen that on POW, Chichigof, Baranof, and Etolin.

    Don't hunt Kuiu for deer....too many wolf.
