Anyone have any info on area 114? We have it the second weekend.
Don't take this as me being a smart ! But I have been in 114 the last two weekends. Everyone is seeing deer if they stay in the woods. If you are at the truck 30 minutes after daylight you won't see much. And while that seems like I am stating the obvious. 40-50% of the hunters I have are driving around by 0730. Just go into one of those hollers and sit as long as you can.

I've been selected for area 35 for the first hunt. Is this a good area? If so where should I hunt at in that area?

I noticed something different on the paperwork this year. It says that if you do not have a DOD ID or AIE you must obtain one from the visitor's center. So all of the gun hunters have to first go to the visitor's center to get a pass before they will be allowed to access the hunting areas? Can anyone confirm this?

jsc3150,
That is correct, all hunters. You must go to Visitors Center, get a ticket number , get in line with the rest of the crowd, will need photo ID. Can take some time if there is a crowd.
I think ?? is open from 6:00 am to 9:00pm

My son will need a pass. I am not sure but I think he will be able to get a pass the day prior.

So if we get a visitor pass on Friday, is it only good for Friday or is it good for the entire weekend? Surely we will not have to go back and all check in at the same place everytime we enter the base for the duration of the hunt.

It's because it has been open to gun hunting all season just about.
