Would love to hear some stories from this trip? On the list to try and make this trip for up coming season.

Sarge we had a lot of rain and for the majority of the usual gang it was a washout.  But for those of us that have plenty of time on our hands we stuck it out and saw lots of deer.  At least the other guys saw lots of them.  

I like to have everyone take photos as the hunt goes on and at the end of the hunt I make a slide show from the pics.  With the foul weather we didn't have many photos to choose from.  Still one of us managed a nice 6 point and others had shots.  

Last year Bowlong and I hunted out there for 15 days if I remember correctly.  This year we added wtpops and he spent a week running around out there.  Bo and I stayed a few days longer than that.

 We had Sweeney & stinger slinger come out for the weekend but they had to head back to work so they only got to hunt that weekend.

It will be the same place next year.  2nd weekend of Oct.  I imagine a few of us retired guys will more than likely show a few days early again and stay until muzzleloader opens.

FcmP,
Many thanks for the report. Being able to get out there is the main thing, everything else is gravy. I'm planning on this year, hopefully can make it work. Whats the bear population around there? That is my main goal.

Thanks,
Sarge

There are bear in the area.   That part of the state has a fair population of them and there is an open season then. I haven't seen any but I have seen scat & tracks once out there.

I had an amazing hunt. Met some great guys. Learned a lot, though ive been hunting most of my adult life its been in California and for the past 30 years has been hogs no deer. This is my first whitetail season ever. I was pretty much all eyes and ears. Pac came in on Wednesday when i arrived and put me in his boat to show me around. Little did i know he would let me follow him around like a lost puppy and hunt with him on his honey holes. Cant say how much i appreciated that. Learned so much on those hunts.

BoLong took me out to one of his spots showed me the area and the tree he sits in and said use it because it has a lot over cover as the deer come from point A and B most of the time. Well i choose to climb a tree close to it as his was a little big and i was not sure my stand would fit (it most likely would have) needless to say when the deer came in, 3 does and a nice 8 point, i got busted. Lesson learned, when a guy who has been hunting this part of the country for all his life, listen to him    :banghead:  

I hunted a couple of days on my own walking out of camp. Saw deer there to. I must have been on deer 80% of the sits i did with opportunities on most.

Again this trip and the guys (along with the deer  :) ) taught me more in a week than i would have learned in three seasons on my own. Cant wait until next year.

I did get a couple of pics from Bolong's ARROW 14 hunt.

 

Nice when you can drag them such a short distance to the boat opposed to over the hill and through the woods but of course that is my opinion.

We use the boats to get to different coves and shorelines but there are some islands big enough to hunt with deer on them.

We do a bit of both but several of our group never step foot in a boat.  They walk across the road behind the camping area and see just as many deer if not more than I do by boating.  You only have to go maybe 150 yards behind my normal camping spot to start hunting.  Then you have thousands of acres to hunt.
