Deer are down in the Hammersly as everywhere else in northern 2G.

Saw several groups tenting there this year, including one group with horses. Did not see any game hanging.

Yes can drill there. Most of the drilling has been around the edges (particularly along McConnel Road). I think a lot was redrilling existing wells to prepare them for more storage.

Did not hunt bear in that area. Usually a mast issue where the bear would be.

There aren't any active wells in the Hammersly that I know of. The gas activity on McConnell is shallow gas drilling, not marcellus. However, there is a marcellus well at the bottom of Horton Run near East Fork.
FWIW, my family killed 3 bucks in the HWA this year.
