WARNING! Know what your getting into before you waist your time on this hunt! THE PARK WILL NOT BE CLOSED DURING YOUR HUNT! Read that again, the park will not be closed during your hunt!, there are no cabins available until May 2015! The camp grounds for the weekend of my hunt are 90% taken! You will be hunting on the most severely damaged acreage in the park so don't waist your time bringing either climbing stands or ladder stands because there are NO suitable trees left in that area to hang them, better bring your pop up blinds and I would suggest more than one! Baiting is allowed but what is the point? You throw deer corn on the ground the day of your hunt it will take deer 72 hours to find it? The hunting area is limited to just under 1000 acres for all 12 hunters. The park staff said that they will post signs warning campers and day use folks about the hunt area BUT they cannot promise that hikers or mountain bikers won't wander into the hunting area! WHAT? So after talking to Austin and to the park supervisor I have decided it is NOT in my best interests to travel 4 hours, spend over $600 dollars on gas, food and lodging to hunt in a state park that was ravaged buy a wild fire and over run with campers! Good luck guys your gonna need it!
