    The term area guide is a misnomer. They are more administrators. They are there to make sure all hunters are aware of boundries, rules and are checked in and out on time. They are not required to give hunters information on where to hunt within the assigned area. Think about it. An area guide gets calls from 20 people assigned to an area, if they were to give all 20 people the same information then hunters would be pilled on top of each other. Its the hunters responsibility to do a good map recon and possibly scout if the areas is open prior to the beginning of quota. if its an area only open during quota, you must rely on your knowledge of terrain and deer behavior to pick a suitable location. Your best bet is to stick it out in your stand all day and let all the walkers push deer to you when they decide its time to go on a walk about.

    Another Tip with your area guide. They can NOT tell you where you CANT hunt with in the legal bounds of a hunting area. They often times will bring guests, which they are allowed and will put them in the areas prime spots. You are free to hunt where you want, just remember to respect other hunters and give them some space. If you have problems with area guides telling you, you can't hunt some where that is clearly marked on your map as a legal hunting area within you assigned area you should notify Hunt Control of the issue.

    It's been a problem for over a week....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Don't know what causes it, but I have heard several folks complaining about it.

    It's a problem with Google Chrome and your Adobe (was for me anyway). Try opening it in Foxfire or Explorer.

    This might be the best advice you could possibly receive for Knox (really any military post). When deciding where to hunt, always consider the hunters who like to walk (we call them "stompers") and where you think they might stomp through. While drives are not allowed, if you plan accordingly you can strategically use the stompers to your advantage and they won't even realize they've helped you out until after you've shot your buck. ;)

    I'm pretty sure you can. The roads with the "dashed" lines are gravel roads, which are legal to drive on (and two wheel drive accessible).
