Went out last week for the Gun Deer - Doe/Spike hunt. This was my first time on this property and I can't say enough good things about the land, faculty, and facilities. What an awesome time!

I saw plenty of forked antler bucks (even up to some good 8-points) but the only doe I saw was on the way out.

I did however drop my first hog Thursday evening at last light -- ~150lb boar.

I will definitely be applying for more drawn hunts out here.

Congrats! I've got a hog hunt scheduled out there in May. Any pointers or info would be much appreciated. Where did you stay?

I stayed in the campground off 287. (Indoor plumbing for the restroom with heaters and shower -- a bonus in my book)

Get a couple cans of the sugar beet scent from Buck Bomb. It will help mask your scent (with a very sweet smell BTW) I sat over corn for a day and a half before I sprayed the buck bomb and the pig came in within an hour after that.

Good luck!

I was lucky enough to get my doe the first day. Had to bring my dog out the next morning to find her and she was frozen solid.

Really enjoyed the place and staff.

With the place was open for pig hunting all the time, lots of pigs on that place.
