Doug, Ken had something come up and had to pospone it to another date.

Fellows, I'm off this week on vacation. The wife will be out of town this weekend. Thinking of heading down to Stoney Creek just to get out and plunder around. If it all works out, I will take some pics of the campground and surrounding area (Va. side and  Wv side).  Hope this may get ya fired up.
If anyone has any requests, shoot me an email.

Thanks, Mark.  I don't know that I can make it down there before the hunt, but I have been checking out the topo maps of the area online.  I'd like to have a good topo map of the area an may end up printing several screen shots and taping them together.

Please let me know if there are any decent logging trails for covering large section of ground quickly. Any pics of terrain greatly appreciated.

Mark,
I'm still hoping to get down there and look, but, in case I don't, a few pics of the campground would be greatly appreciated,
Right now, it is looking like, I won't be able to make it to scout until mid September.  But, at least it would be squirrel season then!  LOL

Doug. Will do. The Appalachian trail runs through that area real close. Top of the mountain up from the camp ground.
If I was to hunt the Va. side I would think seriously about looking at the topos real close. Drive to the top of the mountain, hike out the AT due north, and drop off toward camp and hunt my way back down off the mountain. Somebody can take ya back up to get vehicle that night. Never hunted that side but been through there several times.
Ken. No problem. I will try and get some landmarks for other people so they can get on google earth and check it out. I know there are numerous logging road beds that are gated off. On the way up the main road. There is plenty of room to spread out in that valley.
Wv. Guys will have to drive up the valley several miles to get back in Wv. For the wv hunters. Check out trout run road, crowder rd. and there is another one that runs due west near the Waitesville old post office. Can't remember its name. Takes you back over Peters Mountain. Plenty of National Forest there too.
I will get as much intel as I can. I know the wv side better for obvious reasons.
If nothing happens, I'm planning on Saturday.  
I will pm or email one of you and forward pics.
Never been much for posting pics on this site. Got sick of fighting photo bucket and such.
Take care and stay tuned.

Great info, Mark!  I really appreciate you being our advance scout!    :thumbsup:  

Getting excited about my first REAL trad hunt.  Since my trad transition, all of my hunts have still been around my wheelie and gun buddies.  A trad camp will be fun.

Mark-  One question on the roads....Where I used to hunt in the GW National Forest up near Zepp, VA, the roads up the mountain are all pretty much closed to vehicle traffic until muzzleloader/gun season.  It's been a while since I hunted there, be we could only use foot travel to get uphill during archery.  Are the rules not the same, or is it possible I was just hitting the woods on some strange fire restriction days or something like that?

Thanks!

Ok fellows. I just walked back in the door from the recon mission. I am far from a photographer but I did my best with my iPhone. If someone will provide their email and post the pics I think a lot of people will be happy. After the pics are posted I will go into detail of my adventure today.
Without searching. My email is markstella@hotmail.com
Lets get these pics posted.

FYI.  It's exactly 52 miles from my driveway to the entrance of Whiterocks campground. Snake is working on the pics.
There should be deer to be had!!! Details forthcoming.

OK...so they are uploaded as a photobucket "story," but it doesn't appear that we can enlarge pics from story mode.  Let me see what I can do.

Great photos!  Thanks for taking them and thanks for posting them.  I'm heading down next weekend for two or three days of scouting.  I'll be scouting the VA side if anyone wants me to check out any particular areas, please let me know.  I'll also take some photos and post them as soon as I get back.  Thanks again for the photos!
