Thread starter #1
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?

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.

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.
