Default Lake Somerville SP - Birch Creek Unit

Got super lucky an was drawn in second draw for Lake Somerville SP Birch Creek Unit antlerless/spike. Any one else on the green screen draw here? I got drawn for Dec 18th-20th. Seems like a decent hunt with plenty of deer in the area and good success rates.

You just have to hit them in the tame spot as the wild ones.

We will be there for the January hunt. Never hunted the park, but have spend a lot of time there camping & fishing. If it's like some other state park hunts I've been on you can just get comfy at the picnic table at any given campsite and wait for the deer to come by.

My FiancÚ won it a couple years ago. Smacked a doe then 30 minutes later smacked a pig. Pretty easy hunt with great success rates all the way around.

What is everyone using for the hunt? I'm looking at 2 3/4 1oz. slugs out of my Mossberg 500.
