It’s what keeps us going back. It’s the complete opposite of every environment I’ve ever hunted in. As primitive as it gets. The only mammals on the island are deer, pigs, coyotes, and raccoons (aside from some small rodents of course). It’s covered in creepy crawlies of many venemous varieties and some huge gators.

And nobody goes to the island expecting to see any monster bucks. The deer there are actually a seperate subspecies than those on the mainland. They’re very small and a 90lb deer is considered huge. If I remember correctly, the largest buck ever killed there weighed 123 lbs.
