    My 13 year old daughter and 11 year old son were drawn for area 48 Wilcox range for this weekends youth hunt. It looks like it has been closed so far this fall. Does anyone have any tips for this location? Thanks in advance. Josh

    May be heading out on Friday. Weather is looking good. Looking at areas 5, 6, 13, or 58 if they are still open on Friday. Any tips on these areas?

    You can hunt anywhere on 48 and see deer. Most will try to run all the way to the end of the range to hunt. You don't need to get caught up in all that. If I were you I would drive thru the gate and straight across the concrete baseline to the end, then go straight across the gully and that will put you in that area directly below duck lake, anywhere in there can be good.

    45 is a good area, especially down by the river but usually fills up quick, 5 has been open a lot and one of the best ridges has been logged last winter, 16 has been open a lot but has some oak ridges around ammo lake, I haven't been in 15 and 17 in a while but both have good oaks. 45 would be my first pick especially as dry as it has been if you can get in.

    I haven't hunted 21 in awhile but it can be good, again I would check down by the river. 33 has a lot of oaks and persimmons about middle of the area, found a lot of scraps in there a few years ago.

    is 103 ever hunted? it may have been a different number years ago, i have an old area map somewhere from the early 80's, but from the Belmont gate to the beech grove gate, i use to walk the fire break back in the 70's/80's for exercise and would laugh at all the orange I could see. the deer had to look like swiss cheese after running the gauntlet of hunters. it was always cool to go to the check station at the belmont gate to see the deer coming out of Hayes flats. I remember one year, mid/late 70's, torrential rains flooded the area and the army had tank retrievers down there pulling trucks out.
