Been hard to find a place to hunt this year. A co-worker showed me some state land to hunt. I met his father who lives close to three miles from the area. They took me around this 4900 acre public land for close to five hours showing me places to hunt. The area is full of red and white oaks, and pine tress. Lots of streams, hills and valleys. It was RUN HEAVEN up there. We bump close to fifteen does. Seen four eight pointers. This was only a third of the land. I fell in love with this place instantly. It has a camp ground area that can only be hunted opening rifle day. Rather it be rifle, muzzleloader or bow. I set up a ground blind on a Ridge along side a stream. The only bad thing is the public land is an hour and a half away. To be honest, what I've seen the first time as ever been up there, the drive will be worth it. Especially since my co-worker's farther invite me to stay anytime. So how far are you willing to travel?
