lol

Thats my problem, i hate staying in the same spot for to long, I'm more of a spot and stalk hunter or still hunter. I just thought i would try something different though. we'll see how that works out.

That is a unique season set

That is a unique season set up. Really cool though. I like it. It definitely gives you the best chance at rattling in a big buck if you did not fill your tag in the early season. It allows you to hunt a lot more. Pretty darn neat. Good luck on both of your hunts. I can not wait to see some pictures of some bucks that got rattled in.

late hunt

I didn't get a chance to archery hunt at all the first season so i'll be going out the late season also.  Anyone know anything about the Travel mangement areas by Mill City? I think there is one south of 22 and one North?  Any suggestions for an access point coming from the East side? If we get snow, will they still be up there?

not sure

I'm assuming your talking about Mill city down by salem? I  havent hunted down there since i was 12 so 18 years ago.lol. From my experience the deer dont come down to far till the snow get s really deep, in a typical year early to mid DEC. From what i hear there is still good hunting down in that area, not too sure how crowded it gets during archery season but in rifle it can get pretty busy. I hunt a little farther north in the santiam unit about 30 miles south east of estacada. when i would rifle hunt i would always go scouting after season during the first 2 weeks of archery season and i would see deer around th 3000-3500' range. hope this helps, good luck with the upcoming hunt.
