Default Chambers Bowhunting question

For those of you that have been...did you bring a ground blind/chair or did you use what was there?

Thanks

Brian

i have done both,,, you can increase your odds by sitting in the bush often,,, biggest problem on his place is animals come from every direction,,,, been hunting their for 18 years most of the time twice a year....

Not sure on chambers but his other ranch crystal creek you better bring stools or chairs. Nothing is set up only a hole to stand or kneel in. Plus it's trashy and filthy at the lodge so bring stuff to clean. They don't.

I’ve been to Chambers on a few occasions with xman59 and our groups have had a lot of success. I can not speak on crystal creek but the bunk house at chambers was clean and there was no issues. Every ground blind I’ve been in had a seat or if it didn’t Dustin informed me ahead of time that I needed one.

First thing to do is move any pre existing stands as soon as you can. Animals know where they are at very quickly. 20-30 yards either direction, down wind will increase your odds.

Don’t put extra corn out either, deer will go around. They’ve seen it all

I just got back yesterday. My boy harvested 2 hogs, Aoudad and a Corsican. I got a small 8 pt and a hog. Another boy in our group shot a Aoudad. Saw something on every sit. We passed on multiple smaller bucks. Another good time. Already booked for next year.

How was the whitetail action? Did you see any whitetail does to shoot at?
What do you think the chance of shooting axis doe/buck will be? We will be there Dec. 6-10.

Plenty of whitetail doe to shoot at. I passed on 20+ shots. Saw 8-10 axis doe and a few hard horned Axis buck but the largest was maybe 16". Think most have dropped their horns. Saw 2 shooter bucks but one was out of range and i got busted drawing on a tall 8 by a buck i didn't see. You should have plenty of action. Dustin is a good guide. I hunted their ground blinds a couple times. Nothing would come into the shooting lanes.

U may want to try the stand on the dry creek bed that's behind the skinning rack. I had a bunch of does, smaller buck, Axis (doe & smaller buck) and a bunch of hogs come in on my last sit. I was the only one to hunt it the week that we were there. Good luck to you. It's a short shot if the wind is right. They never knew i was there.

It's funny you said that because all my guys can attest that I like to hunt near camp. LOL

Default Chambers Ranch Review

Just got back today Dec. 10, 2018 from my 1st time at Chambers and all I can say is that we have already booked for next year. I shot an aoudad, my buddy got a good whitetail doe and my other buddy shot an axis doe. But definitely a target rich environment. Saw animals at every sit and Dustin will definitely help you in any way to get you a shot opportunity and all the Chambers folks were great people to meet. 8 guys in camp and all but 1 took home meat. Some hunters took 3 animals each. All in all 4 hogs were killed, 1 fallow buck, 1 axis doe, 1 axis buck, 2 aoudad, 1 8 point buck and 2 whitetail does. Cabin is great as well as the cooking facilities. Excited for next year already.
