Thanks for the info Saskie. Unfortunately Fort a la Corne is a draw zone only, and I will be hunting the regular rifle season which starts Sept 13. I think I may start scouting up north of White Fox, near the flats along the Torch river, maybe speak to some of the locals. If you have any more ideas on where to go, I would really appreciate them. Thanks again.
I've heard good things from that area, especially north of Love. Find the old Grassy Lake fire tower and start scouting that area and along the river there. Historically north of Snowden/Choiceland used to have a herd long before elk hunting became "fashionable", I haven't lived there for 15yrs now, so my info is a bit out of date.
As the allure of hunting big whitetails becomes more and more a passion for many, we are finding that the recent (historically speaking) popularity of hunting deer from a tree stand is becoming the way to do it. I'll make no statement either for or against that technique here. This will be simply an essay on what I feel are some outstanding rifles for tree stand use.
Before we go even one more step, let's all remember that safety is first and foremost for anyone wanting to hunt...
