Just came back from a youth weekend hunt, and it was a very successful one, there were 26 kids and the first night there were about 14 deer taken, not sure about the doe/buck ratio but there were some good bucks I heard; my son took a doe Saturday evening just before end of LST. The GW aged it at 5.5 years and weighted 62# dressed, and on Sunday he took a nice 8 pt buck, came at 94# dressed, so it was decent sized, and was aged at 3.5 yrs.
We left the hunt around noon on Sunday as we had to take the deer to a processor, and I heard some other deer had been taken, some kids filled their 3 deer tags, but not sure of the final count as the hunt went on until 6pm, I'm sure you won't have any problem seeing deer.
We corned the opening we were hunting on, and also dropped some sweet horse feed (Park staff told us the deer liked horse/mule feed); Sunday morning all corn was gone, but the horse feed seemed to be all there, maybe they didn't like the brand...?
Park staff was awesome with the kids.
We were in compartment 2, which is the Gorman Falls/Conference Center area; a kid got a nice big Auodad as well, not sure in what compartment he was; no pigs that I'm aware off.
I'm going to try to resurrect my Photobucket account to load some pics and add to my original post from a few months back.
