My family used to years ago. In fact, my grandfather's cabin was near the old bridge foundations near the boat launches now. Lost it when Dam was built and built another on in Marshburg.

We hunted there in the 70's and very early 80's Use to just camp along the road in one of the pulloffs. There was ALOTA deer and alota hunters back then. We are way to old now to hunt the mountians anymore. We heard in the 90's there were almost no deer at all up that way. Was that true? Did they ever make a comeback? I remember the days of Schoolhouse and Holmes Hollows hunts. Just wondering... thanks

I've been hunting that area for about 8 years now. It's a nice area, but you won't get overrun with deer and your success will be heavily dependent on mast production. Number of hunters seems do vary from year to year also. Sometimes, there are a few guys in the woods. Sometimes you wonder if you are there on the right days.


No doubt it's quite different now than in the 70's and 80's.

I live right down the road and hunt it sometimes. It's BIG woods. Sightings are far and few between, but obviously there some big ones hiding miles deep!

as you are aware then , back in the day 80% of the bucks that were shot were the spikes ,forkeys and scrub racks. The nicer bucks came later in the week and into the second week. Now with the point restriction I bet too there are a few good ones....thanks kyle

I hunt it often. Big woods hunting at its best. You might only see 20 deer all season, but you might kill a 160 class buck also. It is not easy hunting, but I enjoy the ---- out of it....
