Just in case anyone cares (haha)....it was entirely too hot that late Oct week.
We basically sat in the shade during the middle of the day and swat swarms
of bees and wasps. All we saw were lots of DOES during the daylight hours.
At night there is a huge open area near the road that for some reason they
like to gather at. I spotlighted every night (without gun) just to see whats out
there and I saw no less than 20 does and 2 decent bucks every night. When I say decent bucks Im talking about nothing even close to trophy deer....but near 4 pt deer hard to really get a good look at due to leaving my good spotlight at home. But anyways I have been hunting this area for at least 7 years and
my father in law for over 30....the deer are getting more and more scarce every year...but we had a great time...and probably wont give up on this area for many years to come. Thanks for reading.....time to put in for Elk soon Yes
