I drew 2nd deer for Lopez. Curious if itís been showing up there. Very limited hunting opportunities on the island that arenít private. Not many locals willing to let folks hunt.

Anybody have any new information on how the deer population is doing on Lopez?  Curious as to how much the AHD has affected the numbers.

When they are not rutting use a fawn distress call and does come charging in looking to save the world.  It WILL NOT work when they are ditching their fawns to hook up for a date.  I usually use the fawn distress early, during archery season.  It may work after they are through the rut.  Give it a try.  We have a few different ones, the one I have is a Knight & Hale and I don't think they make it any longer.  Friends have others and they all seem to work.

I know the population on SJI has been completely devastated, nobody sees deer anywhere anymore.
