Thanks Pete.  But there are few deer here!  Lots of beautiful terrain and great camping, though.  One of these years we'll get one, though.

This expedition turned out to be a solo hunt/camping trip (hope your feeling better Rick).  I got there Wed. midday and set up camp.  It's in about 13 miles from a blacktop road.  Pretty remote.

No deer, though I saw one doe on the way in.  Not much sign in the woods.  Kinda depressing.  I did see some Canada geese heading north (???) in fine formation.

The forest is still quite green, so it was tough to see.
 

Plenty of thick green moss.  It was like walking on a mattress in some places.  Here's a selfie of me taking a break:

Friday, I took a little canoe daytrip down the Cedar River Flow.  So I had a good breakfast before starting out.

 

Hard boiled eggs and venison chili!  And a banana.  Protein, carbs and caffeine.  What more could I ask for?

Here is where I launched my little wooden canoe.  Thanks, Charlie for all the good info about this area!

The leaves were in pretty good color along the flow.

I stopped to take a break and found this old milk bottle up in the woods.

The water was actually pretty low, so I had a difficult time getting to the shore below Buck Mountain, where I wanted to do a quick scout/hunt.  Hard to paddle through these weeds!

So I settled on a shore lunch.  Red neck surf and turf.  AKA venison jerky and smoked oysters and coffee.  Yummy!

Heading back.  I did get pretty near the base of Buck Mtn. but not close enough.  I did take a quick walk and it sure looks like something I want to do, maybe next fall.

Great Pictures Ron.  Did you get past the beaver Dam and up the river? Its worth the trip if you didn't get to this time.
Relax,

You'll live longer!

I didn't get that far, Charlie.  I now wish I did.  Definitely have to try again!

Like you mentioned, it is very quiet there, no noises at all except me paddling.  I also saw a bald eagle, so that was cool.  And a lot of geese and a few ducks.  And 2 loons a ways off.
