I hunted near there, off McBeth road. Go to the last pipe gate on your left coming from stubblefield and you have nearly five miles of public hunting. I'd go by bike on the nice road and some years I wouldn't come across another hunter. I shot more than a couple of nice bucks back in there. Keep us posted.

It's on the western border of SHNF, past Stubblefield from 45. There is another road you take a right on.

I wish I could show you, I loved that area.

Not sure if this was sarcasm so this reply is assuming it was not.

If you pull up the road on a map on your phone, you can take a 'screen shot" on your phone. This will capture what was on the screen of your phone (hopefully the road you recommended). You can save the pic and post it to this thread. Now everyone will know where the road is.

If you were being sarcastic then my meter is broke.
BTW - I hunted the SAM for years and never gave specific locations, just general information.

I wasn't being sarcastic as I was trying to help the new guy and fo butts in giving me orders. I don't like the way he went about it.

I grew up hunting around stubblefield. Camping fishing squirrels coon hunting with dogs and deer hunting. There are some monsters in there but I've never been lucky enough to connect with one. Check out some areas around Osborne road. Look for some ponds on the map. I know some of that area was becoming private land or bought out or something like that but there may still be some good areas there

If you have an Iphone you just push the home button and the little button on the upper right hand side of the phone at the same time.

That may be different for newer versions, but that's how you do it with mine.

As far as Flash's initial comment I think he was making something of a joke about posting it up because if it's as good as you say, once you do that it's going to be filled with people. That's why most of the SHNF hunters on here stopped posting. It was getting crowded enough already without making it easier for people that didn't care to put boots on the ground.

Chew, did you hunt that area when old man Moriarty was running cattle in there? I had the TO insignia for the 90th and he was in the 90th in WWII. When we ran into each other he told me where the deer were because of it. It's been a few years since I have been in there but I could get from 149 to the lake today I'm sure. I know there is a high fence or 2 in there now.

I hunted there in the late 70s and 80s. I didn't know him but my dad had to throw me up in a tree a few times when a ****** off free-ranging bull got after us.

I started in that area from about 78-84. There were quail in there back then. A covey coming thru the oak leaves would get your heart pumping. You hear something but don't see a dang thing.

Several roads off Bethel. Lots of pressure opening weekend for sure on all of them. 2 roads border wilderness area. I have been all the way down most of them. There are also horseback riding trails in there, LSHT too. GPS is your friend in there. Have seen deer and pig both decrease around that area the last 10 years. It was so bad a few years ago I have not been back in there since. Had to find a couple other areas. Maybe I should check it again at some point.

Yes, one of the bordering roads is what I'm talking about. You must've come across GW Biggerstaff a couple of times. That was His stomping grounds.

Im planning on going out there and looking around some. Maybe do a few weekend hunts during the season. Just a few questions, can you camp in the designated areas during hunting season? Also what would work better, a climber, sticks and a lock on, or a ground blind. Thanks

Ran into Biggerstaff a lot. He always checked everything, every time. Ran into him in the Stubblefield area too. Only once on the east side. Brandon is who I have seen the last few times I run into a warden. Now the fed guys are another story.
