    Just been there once last year so I couldn't advise any areas. What I do advise is liberal amounts of permethrin (sp). They have world class turkey mites...ask me how I kno

    I can say from experience that any area on the opposite side of 31W usually fills up pretty fast like 6, 12 and 15 off your list. I have tried hunting over there the past couple years and it never amounted to anything but a small doe. From what I've learned in my scouting (boots to ground scouting) this last summer is the thicker the foliage the more deer I've seen. That's my 2 cents anyway.

    Yeah, a guy that was milling around in Hunt Control told me to try 6. After he left a guy came up and said ignore him. He said it might be easy to hunt but there's poison oak every where and a ton of people hunt it. Most days I was there last year there were 10-15 people in there.

    Thinking bout going tomorrow afternoon. Are civilians able to sign into an area the same day they hunt. Or are you required to sign in the day before?

    There were several areas packed this weekend unlike last year. Area 79 was packed out. When we left there had only been 3 does checked and 1 was from my party. We could've probably killed more than that but were of course waiting on the big one. There was a ton of military activity this year as compared to last year. I definitely think it effected deer movement.

    I hunted 17 all weekend and hunted it hard but I only saw one doe that was out of my comfort zone for a shot. Weird, I thought all the elements were just right for seeing lots of deer. Colder weather, so lunar times were right but nothing. Maybe your right Oklahoma about the amount of troop activity.
