Deer hunting on islands by groups of hunters is widely used on the freshwater lakes of Western Ontario.
Deer hunting on islands is a pretty effective method that is popular in some parts of Canada.
All you need: some buddies, a few boats, and you are all set.
There you have it. It is simply a question of using the same methodology as deer drives in the woods and applying it to islands. It is an effective method because deer on islands will usually move to the narrowest points when pushed by hunters.
When deer hunting on islands, you simply drop off a few shooters to stand and move around by boat and push the other side of the island towards the shooters. Any deer are likely to be funneled right towards their shooting lanes.
As long as everyone wears hunter orange and shooting lanes are adhered to, hunting islands is something you may want to try in your area.
