Haven't been to this park but if you can stay out in the stand all day I see as many deer between 11am to 2pm as in the morning's or evening's.

My kids drew 5 years ago. They drive you to the stand and pick you up. You can take some corn with you to throw. They hand corn the spots prior. We had an evening hunt on Saturday and a morning hunt on Sunday. Might take some shooting sticks and small chair with you. The stands were pallets and some brush with 5 gallon buckets for seats.

Thx for the feedback. I think I'll take my own chairs...Buckets do not sound fun. Planning to camp in the grounds.

Just came back today. Rained during the Saturday evening hunt. Sunday morning, fog replaced the rain. We did not see a deer/hog/squirrel/etc. all weekend. Six youth hunters, three deer taken (all Sunday morning):doe, spike, and yearling. Either sex hunt.
