Thought it would be helpful to have a dedicated thread for drawn hunters to share thoughts and info.

I was assigned to the 1-8 unit (parking 1-8-E). There are no specific hunting areas assigned inside this compartment. I figured we should know where everyone will be beforehand for obvious reasons.

I have been assigned to compartment 1-3 and parking in 1-3 G. Zooming in on google earth, my parking spot does not look like much, it says we can count the number of parking spots to determine how many are in our unit, but mine looks like just a dirt road with no "visual parking spots" so not sure how many will be here. Anyone bringing an atv with them? It says we can use it on roads, so I may bring mine, not sure yet.

My parking area is not visible on maps, but it's there. They put a post with your parking letter and mow an area next to it.

I don't know about 1-3, but half of hunting areas in 1-8 have VERY rough roads. Also, the first hill you have to climb to get to any parking spot is almost impossible for a 2wd in dry conditions (forget it if it rains). If I had an ATV, I'd definitely bring it to 1-8.

Do park in assigned spots. Convinced of Fed Cessna fly over and talked with guys in another unit identified same. But I could be wrong and same plane liked flying over different areas 5 miles apart.

Just got finished field dressing a decent 10pt from the valley south of parking 1-3-C and 1-3-D. My brother and I have those two spots.

Either my pic is sideways or the terrain is steeper than I thought

Thanks! We were here the same weekend back in 2018 and it was peak rut, so I came with high hopes. So far so good!

Congrats. We were out there in 17 or 18. Got to watch 2 bucks fight from about 350 yards.
