I been there.

Course, I'd been to that park several times before they started the hunt years ago too. Some of the WT would eat out of your hand back then. But things have changed since then.

We stayed in one of the cabins near the river. I was really surprised how warm they were. Only down side is no pets and no cooking inside the cabins. But you could eat in there. And no alcohol in the park period. I can live without it anyway . They were really clean too. 4 bunks, a broom, wall outlets, and a picnic table inside. Also have A/C. When we got there it was 28 degrees. That lil wall heter had the place up to 78 in 15 minutes! And there is an outside electric outlet. And an outside picnic table to cook on. We had cabin #1. $56 night.

That's the last hunt and will be really tough. They take you to your spot and pick you up, you have to stay within 50 yards of a flagged stack they put out. so all of the previous hunters have been set up within a 50 yard rad. I am not trying to discourage but prepare you for it, I had the last hunt last year and did not see an animal.

I had the last hunt a few years ago with the same result. They have 12 preset hunting locations and 12 hunters each hunt. None of the spots get rested at all so the last couple hunts are difficult at best. I still put in for it every year, but only put in for the first two hunts.
I stayed in the cabins too and it was much better than a tent, or my truck, or driving into town to a motel. There is also a shower/bathroom centrally located in the park.

I've hunted it twice and fortunately both were the first hunts
The deer learn on day 1 what you are doing
Don't pass a shot opportunity

Both times I was there I had deer on me the first day and hardly saw an animal the next 2 days

I like going there and still put in for this one every year.

We live here and "hike" in the park a good bit. Rarely see deer unless they are in the big field up front. The rest is all thick cedar. Good luck....

Was out there yesterday evening and saw the most deer I have seen in a single trip. Lots around and in the camping areas but were mostly does with big fawns. Saw two really nice bucks up near the front, but don't think either would make AR unfortunately. One was a big 8 and the other was a huge 7. There were about 20 other does, one axis buck and a black buck doe were up in the SE corner of the open front area not far from the teepee. The two bigger bucks were on the road just past them a little further south...

We will be out there on the 15th, love this hunt.
We carried alfalfa and corn last year and had plenty of animals to look at.
Got a spike on Saturday morning and it was a cold hunt.

I'm going to cowboy up and tent camp for my hunt since it looks like the low is only going to only be in the 40's . Looking forward to it for sure.

A buddy of mine who went on this hunt a few years ago suggested bringing a rod and reel if you are staying in the park. He said he would have loved to have fished a little in his down time.

I'm wondering if something like buck jam/buck candy attractants would be beneficial or detrimental to the hunt. I figure I will need to do something different since I am on the third hunt and actually the 4th because there is a TYHP hunt being held there this weekend.

Haven't been out there in a few weeks but always see the most deer up by the teepee between it and the south treeline. Also always a lot of deer as you drive past the teepee where the road bends to the right where they have thinned the cedars.

I've tent camped twice but took a spot with electricity. We brought a small heater. Glad we did. I think it was 3 yrs ago it dropped below freezing.

Next time will probably just bring our pop up camper.

I was doing some innerweb searching on this hunt and found a guy who was there Dec. 4-6. Below is a quote from him...

Quote:
I saw 5 does and 1 6-pnt whitetail buck. I was able to get my doe tonight. Total: 4 does taken, 1 blackbuck and a guy missed an axis. I can confirm 2 other guys that had shots on a wt doe but kept getting busted when they tried to pull back. I spent a lot of time picking my blind location at least 30 yards away and covering it really well with brush. The deer that came in on me never hinted that they saw me and after I took my doe 3 of them returned including the buck within 2 minutes. Pay special attention to your blind placement and cover and get some distance away from your corn IMHO. My dad was one of them that had his blind 20 yards from the corn and not brushed in well. They knew something was wrong and he was never able to get a shot. If he had spent 15 more minutes preparing his blind I truly believe he would have been successful tonight but I can't tell him that. After doing my research on this place I'd say that these numbers tonight were abnormally high but I am not complaining.

Had a good hunt this morning. I saw one 4 point and had two spikes broadside at less than 15 yds for about 45 minutes. They were off limits since I had already shot my one allowed WT. I知 working to get an axis or blackbuck.

3 is the first one into the camp grounds after the road stand, right?

That cat is a survivor, I saw him twice last year at #7. Deer didn't mind him much. How did y'all do this evening?
