Anyone have any experience with places to bring a 30' travel trailer camper on the island? Only necessity is electricity, during muzzleloader season for a few days? Any advice is appreciated

You would need to call steamship authority first and see when they could ferry that...ain't gonna be cheap by any means

yeah, I took a truck boat and trailer over for work once, think it was around $750 just for the ferry round trip

I've been hunting Nantucket for 16 years and have not missed a year i go for two weeks during the Archery Season but i'm fortunate to have a friends in which lives there that allows me and a couple of my close friends to stay at there house for the 2 weeks that im there. They do NOT allow campers on the island its a Nantucket Town Law so dont bother. The only way would be to rent a house in which is gonna run you around $2500-$3000 for the Week and on short notice you will be lucky to find one plus the Security deposit that they require, and $320 dollars round trip for your vehicle not including your passenger ticket. The other option is to rent a room from one of the Guest House's but again very expensive they charge anywhere from 175-275 a night and you can NOT hang deer at the Guest House's nor do they want to see them so it makes it very tuff. Long story short its a VERY EXPENSIVE TRIP!!!! Also you better have a good idea of where to hunt because there is a lot of POSTED property and areas in which are conservation were hammered during the Shotgun week...........Good Luck

Skippah, there are other islands off the coast. Start scouting now, like Halon said, it's a little late this year.

MV and Nantucket are the only 2 you can hunt. Nantucket has a ton of land you can hunt? Just stay off conservation and ur good. The Vineyard is state forest or written permission, not many ML hunters tho
