I did not hunt 24 last year but have hunted that area for several years and have had very good luck. I have bow, muzzle loader and rifle hunted in 12/24 with good luck in all seasons. It will take you at least one or two preference points to draw an archery tag in 12/24 so hope you have them. Not sure if you looked up the stats for last year but here is some info. You can get all this from the DOW (or whatever they are called now) site too.
In 2011 there were 630 archery tags available with 1015 first choice applicants. Of those who got tags 200 were non residents. I would guess 2012 will be very similar.
2011 harvest rate info is not out but in 2010 the success rate was 14% in unit 24 for archery.
Hope this helps but if you have more questions let me know.
First make sure your gun is safe, remove the bolt and clean your barrel from the chamber to the end of muzzle. Clean the barrel using butchers bore shine until a patch comes out white. Run a total of 5 separate patches soaked with denatured alcohol through the bore and let dry for 30 minutes. Insert a cleaning rod with a jag and a dry patch into the neck of the chamber. Make sure it will stay there through the next process. Now using another cleaning rod, install a patch that has been coated...
