    Only half of the area was open last wknd. They were landing helicopters on the pads near Chappell Ridge Rd. It's a good area, several deer in there.

    its a large tank range. A lot of ground but not a lot of it is huntable.

    Down each side...middle range is off limits.

    O ok did not realize the middle was off limits. Any idea how much it has been hunted and how many they draw for the hunts?

    Was in 45 this morning. Set up 100 yards past a series of scrapes hoping the buck would come through a certain way. Well about 0830 I turned around towards the scrapes and saw a deer hanging around but 100 yards through the trees was way too far to see him good and no shot. He came from a different direction then I had anticipated. Later when I walked out to the truck, I jumped a nice buck that was directly across the road from my truck. Not sure, but may have been the same deer as the new fence they put in down there creates a funnel and he could have easily gotten there from the scrapes. Who ever left a tree stand back there, should have been up in it today, that buck must have went right past it.

    Later I walked up on a dead fawn thinking that someone shot a button buck and didn't want to claim it. Got 10 feet away when it jumped up with a dazed look on its face and trotted off. Never saw a deer completely laid out like that.

    I shot a solid 8 last Sunday. Saw same deer with a doe on Sat but hung up in a thicket. He came rolling by at 30 yards on Sunday and took a 20 gauge slug to the pump station.
    Rut was in full swing last weekend. Lots of bucks cruising and looking. Buddy shot a big bodied 125" 8 pt as well.

    My son got a 9 pointer in 40 on Saturday. Great buncha guides. Explained the area boundaries well and were just good fellas. They also had area 39. Said some guy shot an 8 that was 23-24 inches wide on Sunday. He and his buddies went tracking it WITHOUT their guns and saw it staggering around. Buncha "rookies"... If they woulda had guns they coulda got another shot! Never found it! They also left early! I woulda looked until they ran me out for one that big! Oh well!
