Default Chattooga County

Trying to find out about hunting in Chattooga County. I am looking at some land to lease and trying to find out from other people that have hunted that county.

I live and hunt in Chattooga county. This county produces a few good deer each year but don't expect any true monsters. Not much agriculture. As in any other county the deer density varies from region to region in the county. Lot's of hills and ridges.

What area are you looking at leasing?

15 miles out of FLoyd county is not the Southern part of the county...could you be more specific on the area so I can try to give you a more accurate assessment?

Lot's of hunters on the National Forest. Some real good bucks have come off the National Forest from some of the more inacessible areas of Taylor's ridge. Private, less hunted land joining the national forest generally holds a good number of deer.

Largest buck taken in Chattooga county and registered with the DNR was 142 4/8. It was killed by Bud Sweet back in the mid 90's.

You cross over it when going from Summerville to Rome. USFS road right there....other access spots on the south end as well as private property that butts up to it all over the place. When I lived there the largest bucks were consistantly taken on the south end of the county...Menlo area for example. Might be different now. I've been gone for 17 years.

Access on the North end as well...narrows road, etc.

That is one road. As you are coming from Rome on hwy 27 just as you start up the ridge there is a forest service road on the right that carries you for a couple of miles north on the ridge.

My oldest boy killed the one in my avatar in '08 off Fullerton Rd. On the Alabama side but right across the line from Chattooga County. Our property is on both sides of the line.

Used to be on a lease at the bottom of Strawberry Mountain off of W Armuchee. It was nearly all cut-over but the woods down the creeks were awesome. Guy that leased it wouldn't do it again because he said the land owner wouldn't let him back burn it. He said couldn't see deer because of the thickness. If I had the money then I would have kept it. I saw a buck a day in there at least. He just didn't know how to hunt it I guess.

I've seen some but still not like last year by no means. I shot a 2.5 year old 8 point last week that was checking scrapes...nothing to brag about though. Maybe some nights in the 20's will help!
