I have a couple of questions regarding a Prince William Sound deer and/or bear hunt in the fall. Currently thinking of Montague or nearby island, but open to any ideas. I'm also interested in Kodiak for the same purpose if that is a better option. A friend from back home wants to come up and go hunting, and I'm not hiring a guide. We can't afford a far north caribou trip and I don't want to fool with a huge swamp donkey, so I have narrowed our hunting choices to deer and bear.
1. No boat or plane. Will need one or the other. I dunno?
2. I realize the weather is never good in PWS, but is it better to have bad weather early or late in the season?
3. If I bring along a relative from back home, would it be better to try for deer AND bear or focus one one or the other? I'll be the guide, so you can imagine how well this hunt is going to go.
4. Is it better to go out of Whittier or Valdez or Seward or???
Thanks a bunch. If you know of anything else that might keep me from drowning, freezing, or otherwise meeting a sad end, feel free to share it as well.
