Report: Isolated and ignored by the local population. Excellent remote hunting area for hunters liking solitude. Walk-in access only. Excellent hunting opportunities for grouse, woodcock, ducks, moose and bear. Although the area is beautiful there is a large amount of 30 year-old debris scattered about on the forest floor as a result of an old hippie commune. Be careful about glass.
