Anyone else get one of the remaining 7 permits?
My son and I will be driving up Friday night and camping at the park.

Bag limit is 2 white-tail deer, either-sex with no antler restrictions.

Good luck. I did the archery hunt last year. Saw tons of deer, but only one small buck.

I talked to the Park Super last week. They have had feeders up in all 8 compartments for the past month feeding corn. Says they have seen plenty of does and hogs and 2 nice mature bucks, but a youth has yet to harvest a mature buck there.

I secured an AirBnB room 7 minutes from the park for $30/night.
Truck is loaded with blind, chairs, camo and coolers.
Heading North tomorrow after the boy exits the school house.

Score!

1 button buck
1 spike
1 hog

All between 730-9am this morning

We hunted in the snow and had a snowball fight in town last night.
Perfect wonderful weekend with my boy taking his first deer and the same age as I was. And we both scored spikes as our first deer. It couldn't have been more perfect!
