    I hunted a couple of days last week, saw all my deer in the mornings nothing in the afternoon, they are shelling corn hard right now plus acorns are falling so plan to find some good white ridges preferable closer to the lake, get in quiet as possible.

    White oaks are dropping hard. The ground is covered ater the wind we had the last few days. Saw four does while scouting.

    I don't know how you hunt that place, it all looks good when there is a layer of acorns on the ground. The fields I saw where either just grass fields that had been bush hogged or corn fields that were shelled.

    Seen one guy hunting the edge of a corn field. Several people camping near the lake that you could tell were there hunting (seen clothes, stands, etc.).

    4 of us went this past weeken, 3 of us connected on does. Saw a couple decent bucks, def shooters for bonus deer. One was being chased by coyotes. Saw probably 20 or so between us for 2 days hunting.

    What area was you in? Did you hunt oak ridges or what was your hunting strategy? Me and 3 buddies are coming down the 25th through the 29th to hunt.

    The best places I have found to hunt this time of year have been close to the lake. We find a place where that really green grass is starting to grow as the lake level drops, and look for the well worn trails leading into the surrounding woods. Set up about 100 yards in the woods on one of those trails, and you are sure to see some deer.

    Goin down on Halloween morning to area 4 for the weekend long ways from home for me but I went last year and had fun. this will be the second time I have ever been there. Last year I did what everybody does I guess, we went down weekend the weekend of the 11/12 and I found a big soy bean field and a pond and a crazy amount of sign but not a single deer. but it was still a fun trip with my buddies anyway that's all that matters.

    Stay away from the fields this time of year, as they get hit hard. All that sign around those fields you see is being done at night. You need to find where they are before they make their way to the fields.

    Ok so here is my next question then. We have decided that we will hunt the 27th thru mid day on the 31st. Are we able to come and set up our camp on the evening of the 26th where we are planning to hunt?

    I think, think now, that you are good to go to camp and bow hunt the days except for the quota days and the day before. Honestly, I was going to duck hunt that Friday before our hunt and set camp. I know it is open per the waterfowl and small game info sheet.
