NMG&F just put a trap near Hardcastle Gap for a problem bear....its just south of the lake. There was lots of elk in the area around the lake a couple weeks ago, but don't know how many hunters have been in there since. Mtns east of the lake are usually good.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
