    Crazy Idea,Xmas on the Queen Charlottes "Haida Gwaii"

    My wife and I are thinking about flying there ,and checking the area out over the Holidays.
    We would fly in from YVR. Thought it might be fun to do a few days of tiny deer hunting while I'm there. Any tips on Guides/Outfitters,Butchers that could take care of the meat/and shipping. We will rent a vehicle,but apparently some might not be to happy if it goes offroad. PM if you like, any help or info much appreciated. Kind of a Bucket list thing,but self employed in the Lower Waistland so only have so much time off.

    Should be fun, don't know about butcher's but you probably don't need a guide.

    I know the rental car company puts out in its contract that anytime they find out you went off road with their vehicles it's $1,000 fine.

    As long as they don't fine you for putting deer in the trunk you should be ok?

    We did the Christmas hunt thing there a few years back. Drove up, planned to sleep in the canopy as we wanted to explore and not be tied to one spot. Had a bed and everything. It absolutely poured on us for the entire time. Ten days of soaking, saturating rain. Nothing dried. And then we went to go home and the ferry was delayed for four days by weather.

    We had had a great time. Got our limits of deer, saw hardly anyone else. But if I did it again, I would do the wall tent with the wood stove to have somewhere warm and dry. Or rent a cabin somewhere off season.

    Dont bother her trying to rent a vehicle up there. As soon as they see your gear, and ask why you are there they are likely to cancel it. They were all over rentals driving on north beach a few years back. Apparently, had someone sitting at the beach entrance watching for the rentals coming on.
