Hey I appreciate it. I'll be there in the spring, opening week all week long unless I tag out early.

Can anyone give me some hints on where to park and how to get into area 5? Been skunked all season in 1 and 3, time to try something different!

Finished up the year, first buck I successfully killed with my bow. Best part was itís the same deer I hit before thanksgiving and spent 10 hours tracking to come up empty handed. Gonna European mount it so Iíll be sure to follow up on how that turns out.

Got me one Saturday night. Not the biggest we saw but this late in season he was good enough. Had him come out right at 5:50pm after not seeing anything all day. He presented a good quartering away shot and I took it with only a couple minutes of light left. Caught both lungs and he piled up at about 50yds. Pic shows entrance looking a little back but exit was at back edge of offside leg. Aged him at 3.5 and he field dressed at 118 lbs.

Both main beams and brow tines broken so this guy was a fighter.

Guess my TBR season is done.

Could it possibly be in the paint ball land? Donít know if whoever owns that is allowed to hunt with gun. Might contact Jason, TGW on here, and give him the details. Heíd be the one to check anything out.

Never hunted public land before but I am interested. Anyone care to share some insights on what to do and expect?

It was by the paintball area but more towards the parking lot had the game warden out that night but not much they could do at that point. i know there is still some private land right there but this was much closer than that
