Not worth the trip, I live near Palmer and drive thru the area often. Deer are very close to 0 per square mile.

There are deer here. I spend three to four days a week in the woods and have been out almost everyday the past few weeks training upland dogs. I would have to say that the numbers are similar to last year but with a promising fawn crop this year. Something you have to understand about rifle season last year is that we were hit with a massive snow storm right before the 15th. It was deep enough to make moving for them and their fawns difficult so they migrated. This is why some guys did very well (on migration trails) and some (like me) really struggled to see a deer. I live near gwinn and grew up near amasa where I know have a camp. Iv seen the same numbers in both locations. As usual for up here, success won't come without work or luck but the the opportunity is still there. Hope this helps.
