I got one very nice buck on my camera, probably the biggest Ive seen on the property, but I've yet to see him while I was in the stand. Maybe I'll get him this weekend. Haven't hunted public land yet. Good Luck
Yea I use to hunt up around Shirley Grove a lot, the Buck in my profile pic was harvested there. The deer are there they are just few and far between. There is just so much land up there for them to thrive on with no pressure. I think when they closed Grannies Camp it reduced the pressure that use to keep them moving more. Good Luck
Usually from now till close is time to be in the woods. I've killed my best deer and had best luck from 9th to 19th. It's been little later than that the last few years and this year looks to be the same with lack of acorns and prolonged summer heat.
