    Here is the best Knox advice you can get. Don't be the Doofus at the truck at 0900 saying there are no deer here this is a waste of time. There are good deer in all areas but you have to hunt. Good Luck and sit all day.

    I was out there yesterday and was seeing deer early, but they were too far into the trees to tell what they were.
    Then around 10 I look to my left and two doe are 15 yards away. Never heard them. Saw lots of buck sign in scrapes and rubs. Still have my either sex tag so I am hoping to see a bruiser come by next week.

    If anyone is bow hunting tomorrow it would be a good idea to sign into area 21, saw 2 shooters chasing does in that low area between the road an the river! One I know is at least 150" typical 10! Pm for more detailed information.

    yes, you put in for the bow hunt in august. You are drawn for one weekend and you can hunt through the week with the exception of Tuesday (no hunting on Tuesdays).

    Weapons question.....

    Last year, we registered our guns, shotguns and Muzzle Loaders with the registration form From Directorate of Emergency Services. Says on top of form that they are good for 3 years. Everything went smooth.

    We started hearing rumors about having to do something different to use Muzzle loaders, today I called Hunt control and he said our registration form from last year was good for this year again, no further action needed.

    Another member of our group also called hunt control and he got a totally different answer. He said we indeed needed to fill out new forms for MUZZLE LOADERS only........

    Can anyone clarify what has changed since last year?

    When i called them early this spring the provost Marshall told me Bows and ML DO NOT need to be registered. Who did u talk to at HC? And I would call STR8 to the MP desk SGT and get clarification to be on the safe side. Provost Marshall is the only one who can tell u what and what not needs to be registered. But I can tell u that when i told the gate guard i jad a ML he didnt ask for my registration paperwork.

    When hunting with a muzzleloader on Knox is there any stipulations as far as powder or anything that you are allowed to use.
