Went with a place in Dorchester Co. over 10 years ago. The guy was a jerk, got mad that I passed an iffy shot on a 5pt stag. That was the only "opportunity" either of us hunting had that week.

I've hunted Assateaugue a few times. Great opportunity to take some sikas if you know when/where to hunt and get drawn for it. They're GREAT eating, too.

Do it yourself... No need to pay the ridiculous fees the outfitters charge. Fishing Bay WMA is huge and not that much pressure. Particularly during archery when the rut is going on. Look at the page the Maryling DNR has for Fishing Bay. Find the map. Match it up to Google Earth. You can do most of your scouting with the map and Google Earth. Wear hip boots, bring a Thermacell and be ready to hike in a mile or two. Cheap places to stay in Cambridge. I make a 4 or 5 day hunt out of it every year. 80% success rate on 4 point or better stags. Never paid a penny to anyone but the State of Maryland for the hunting license.

Almost no way to get it to be gamy, and it will tender, even if grill-cooked to well done.

If you have a boat, try Chance & Guinea islands out of the Best Pitch boat ramp at Fishing Bay. Boat only access, should have the place to yourself during archery.

No draw, no permit required for deer hunting. Open to public hunting all seasons for deer. You can camp at Bestpitch if your rig is self contained.

There may be a draw or reservation required for goose blinds though.

Sika is they finest eating game meat I have had the pleasure of eating. They are fun to hunt, just like miniature elk. I hunted last year with a friend who has been calling for them for many years. I think we called in about 20+ hinds and stags. A rush to say the least. I am definately going back!
