    We have been there 2 times and tagged out both times on does and took one small 8. The buck to doe ratio is way off. It is loaded with does there are a few nice bucks running around but not many. Knight and hale has private property that joins and runs down into it and they have plots planted in there. We took a couple does on the ridge adjoining there property and another hunter took a nice 9 pointer on the other side of there property closer to the road. Both years there was decent bucks took in the holler behind the gun range. We took a small 8 and a couple does just below the airport. If you going to meat hunt you will have a good trip but if you are going in hopes of a monster buck you will prolly be disappointed.

    Meat hunt is all I usually do unless I got a few in the freezer. But thanks I appreciate it! At least I know there's some deer running around out there

    I like the odds then for sure. I put in for that quota hunt because it was after the season ends. I like to stretch out my hunting season as much as I can haha. I'll head for the range or airport and hope for the best.

    My Bro-in-law and myself, but he's having some medical issues with gout in his knee right now and unsure if he'll be able to go.
