Re: late season moraine

I hunted many years on Cristly Rd. in an area called Whippoorwill hill. From 422 take 528N it's on the left. It's a gated road that will take you down to the lake. The Wigston trail crosses it just down over hill.

It used to be a good area with lots of deer and lots of hunters during rifle season. The first day of doe season you had to be early or there would be no where to park.

I haven't been there in 4/5 years. Hunter and deer numbers where way down at that point. Still it's a beautiful place and it's hard to get lost. It's also one of the biggest areas of woods within the park. Plenty of room to roam.

You can access the same area by parking at the 528 boat ramp at the end of old 422 and walk back the road (it's also gated). There is a restored pump station and osprey towers you can check out while your back there.

For many years that area was my number one deer and turkey area. I've since moved away and moved on. It will always be a favorite place.

You can't get one sitting at home on the couch.
