  • Anyone deer hunt on Green Island?

    Has anyone deer hunted on Green Island in the last 2 or 3 years? I'm thinking about it, but the last nearby bigger Island trip was miserable and nobody saw anything. I'm just looking for experiences and advice for an October hunt.

          I did last august. The up side is there are deer out there. The downside is, it's a flat heavily vegitated island so actually finding the deer and getting a shot is an entirely different deal.

          PWS is a tough place to hunt deer, and thats when the weather is good.
          Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

          If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

            Deer out there

            Hunted both Green and Montague with deer on both. Look at Google maps to get a lay of the land. Trip out there can be rough and I've done it also in October.

            Try Dan Eames if you need a transporter out of Valdez. Good guy - have no idea what he charges. Good luck.

              In October.....Don't expect to slaughter them just prepare to walk you're butt off and have a good time. Put in the time and effort you'll see deer. You may not get a shot off but you'll see a deer two. I've hunted Perry, Hintchinbrook, Knight, Naked (THE ISLAND) and Green. I'm probably going to Montague this year. I've found the same results on every island. If it ain't steep, it's thick. If it's open, you don't see any deer. If the weathers bad, it can get worse!! Just when you think the deer sign you're seeing must be coming from invisble or nocternile night roaming deer, you're hunting buddy shoots one...... It's a tough hunt but I like it. I'm being a little sarcastic but for the most part thats all true. Maybe you'll get lucky and whack one on the beach. Those ones are my favorite

                2 deer

                I spent about an hour there right before dark last October. Climbed up on the ridge, blew the call and took two and climbed back down. There is a brown bear on the Island, I saw him at about 30 yards. Not an especially big one, though. Good luck.
