Lets talk tactics. Pines or hardwoods? Do you try to go deep? Are most units good hunting?
 
Ive been going about 20yrs....I absolutely love that place. None of the hunts sold out as of day of the drawing We first applied for first gun hunt and we went to the drawing. They said first time in history that the first hunt had a hand full of openings, and the primitive hunt had over 50 remaining. Also the last gun hunt had over 900 openings. So guess what....I got all 3 hunts

Listen to Snuffy and use Permanone on your clothes, inside a tent, on the tent door, inside the truck, and check regularly for ticks.
The last Turkey hunt my son and I went on ticks were crawling everywhere. Due to not being thorough using permanone my son brought home a case of Lyme disease.

Went and scouted today. It’s a huge area no doubt! A very homogenous tract imo. Huge uneven aged pine stands interspersed with hardwood drains. Deer sign everywhere we looked. We’ve got 3-4 places picked out but I’m not sure you wouldn’t do just as good finding a place without a truck and walking in and setting up.

Scouted again yesterday. We checked some new areas and found some good sign. Starting to develop a plan!

@Deerhead let’s hope nobody else thinks so too!

That's about right. Good deer all over that place. May see you out there. I usually park my tent in the cedar trees for shade during the alleyways hot days there.
