The best deer i ever killed came off an island in the Ohio River. The islands can be hard to hunt and can be dangerous so be careful and make sure someone knows where you are. I used a 16' jon boat with a 25hp motor for my hunting. I had the parking spot for my boat marked with trail tacks and used a spotlight to find my way and make sure I didn't hit a log. Those sure were some chilly rides in the dark in November but well worth it. The deer are relatively un-pressured and easier to hunt. Good luck.
