I went up July 9th and setup 4 cameras. All spots had does coming in everyday. 2 of the 4 had bucks coming in every other day and one spot had a big boy coming every 3-4 days. I know it's still early but it's still exciting. I noticed a lot of areas burned and roads are still closed or screwed up from rains last year. Here are a few pics of the deer and growth I'm seeing.

Nice deer! Maybe it's just me but that high rack 8 looks like a 2yo.

I bet that big boy is closing in on mid 150s. Maybe even 160. Such a giant. These deer is what keeps me coming back year after year. Absolutely love davy crockett.

Great deer but isn't it illegal to bait in a national forest?

Its illegal to bait and hunt..I bet there is a stipulation that says you may not hunt a baited area that has had bait on it in the past 10 days.

Yes I'm pretty sure it's illegal. I know it is illegal to bait and hunt for sure. That one log does look like a block or mineral lick but I assure you it's not. I noticed it after looking at pics. Nothing to hide here.

Thank you. I know it's still early and really no way to guarantee they stay there. But my fingers are crossed. I will check cams again in 2-3weeks

No problem. Only reason I ever assumed baiting was that seems to be a odd shaped log that the deer seemed to be paying a lot of attention to. But since the op set it straight it must just be a good travel area.

The area was recently burned and there is a lot of fresh growth and grasses growing there. Also you can see two of the 5 oak trees that are there. I am very excited to see if they start dropping acorns. I will be set. The camera is setup on a trail that I assumed was a path from the flat to a bedding area but they seem to be using it very randomly. So I can't really figure out why they are there but I don't really care at this point. Lol. I just hope they stay

You'd be surprised how many people bait, put up permanent stands and drive off the road out there in all the NF's. There seems to be a wide disregard for the law out there and the lack of enforcement doesn't help anything. It sucks to scout and work all summer then have someone move in on your spot come deer season and corn it where you can't hunt it. I've been running into that more and more.

Those are some great bucks Flash!

I agree completely... happens way too often. Heck I've even ran across feeders. It's insane the things people do. Ive seen and office chair hanging from a tree by ropes. Just interesting people

I feel you here. Last year I spent 3months targeting a buck. I finally got to the point that I was getting pics of him using a trail every two days. Hunted the spot for 3 days. On the fourth day I got a picture of a guy walking on the trail with a bag of corn. Fifth day I got a pic of the buck again. Sixth day my camera was gone. It's so frustrating. Who knows maybe I had moved into an area where he was already hunting. But still.....leave a note or something. Don't just take my stuff. I have walked up on multiple cameras and simply turned around. I was ground hunting in a very large thicket once and walked up on what looked like a fire lane in the middle of the thicket. It was about 50yrds long and 10'wide. Someone had gone in there and cut trees down and cleared underbrush and put a popup on one end and a camera with corn on the other end. The ground blind was all bleached out with holes in it so it had been there awhile. Beer cans and coke cans littered the floor. It was sickening.

I hate beer cans. That just makes my blood boil. We have 160,000 acres to hunt and they treat it like a dumpster. Respect the land we are lucky enough to make boot prints in year after year.

What's your video camera set up at the DC? I basically take a small pack my climber and bow. I don't carry anything that can't get wet. So just curious how you do it.

I keep a ziplock in my pack. If it starts raining I slip the camera in there then put it in my pack. I am guilty for packing way too much stuff in with me. I hang my bag on the tree and my Bow and camera mount to my stand. I made my own camera arm that mounts on my climber. There is a video on my YouTube Chanel that shows how I made the arm. I haven't filmed in about 3 years but looking to get back into it.

I'm gonna look into that. I've never had a kill on camera though the last 6 or so animals I've killed I've had the camera. Either battery dead, didn't turn it on, happened too fast, and once the blind window was in the way. So it's dang sure a challenge, my hats off to you for 2 public land kills on camera

Yeah I have a spot that year after year all different bucks rub this tree, it's about 10 inches across. But I haven't been there since they burned that area and it's not too far from a road so I doubt they will be in there unless the cover grows on up

Not accusing anyone of anything but the way those deer are posing and watching they are definetly feeding on something in that spot. Right in that spot.

Lol. Thank you. I've learned to expect actions like that when posting on this site. Honestly I see where they are coming from. It does look like a block. But how else can you get everyone to believe you other than going there with a video camera and proving it. Not worth it. Lol. No hard feelings guys. I'm going up in three weeks if anyone would like to see for themselves. Haha. I will need to blindfold you and escort you back there.


In all seriousness thou, has anyone else got any pics? Any info from the other fellow DCNF hunters?

If you don't mind me asking op, is that around the ratcliff area? I'm thinking about trying my hand at the forest this year. I just don't know what areas are a waste of time lol. I understand if you don't want to say

It'd prolly be for the good of everyone that huts DCNF if talking bout specific areas and spots took place via PM rather than on the open forum. I'm sure lots of eyes see what gets posted and will show up if they figure out any info. Lord knows there's enough pressure out there already.

I didn't accuse anyone evidently you don't read very well. I just said they are feeding in that spot! The guy has a great spot and great pics and he is obviously putting in the work! Great job Flash keep it up.
