Michigan has lots of islands, some of them are totally privately owned.  St. Martins Island is one of those.

Lake Orion, Mich. - A series of pictures circulating on the Internet of a buck pole on St. Martin Island in Lake Michigan is creating a buzz among the hunting fraternity.

The tiny island is located off Wisconsin’s Door County Pennisula, in Michigan’s Delta County, just inside the Michigan/Wisconsin boundary.

Despite reports of a poaching ring, which are circulating with some of the pictures, detective Lt. Wade Hamilton of the DNR Law Enforcement Division’s Special Investigations Unit says the photos are bigger than the story.

Michigan COs visited the privately-owned 2 1⁄4-mile by 1 1⁄4-mile island on a routine patrol on Nov. 19, he said.

“We made contact with 20 to 30 hunters out there in numerous deer camps,” Hamilton said. “We issued 11 tickets for tagging violations and cited them into court in Delta County.”

Hamilton said all hunters appeared to have permission to be on the island and that there were no trespass issues or other game law violations.

“The pictures are accurate,” he said. “They had quite a buck pole.”

The trip to the island was not precipitated by a complaint, but was part of a routine patrol.

“Officers have always worked patrols on various islands when time permits,” he said. “We weren’t there on opening day, but we made it out there by the 19th. There’s an old adage that you never know when a CO will show up, and we like to keep it like that.”

I got another buck this afternoon.  It was that other "cull" that I was looking for.  I took pictures, but left the camera at the cabin.  I'll post pictures when I fetch the camera.

Perhaps one day we could exchange hunting trips...you come to Northern Alberta and I'll guide you to a 150-200 class Mule Deer or White-tail, in exchange for a January hunt down south.  :D

Thoughts?

Sounds like a plan.  I was in Alberta in 1997, but only passing through on our trip to Alaska.

146 km or 1.5 hrs on a good day to Valley View.  Not far at all.
