East side is better for whitetails. But, don't get too discouraged if you can't get on the east side. We killed 2 130s (8 and 10) off the far west side a few years ago. Good deer over the entire property, but, the east side is usually the best. Several solid deer come off there every year, including a couple of 170s last year. Good luck, fun place to hunt, lots of animals.
