Backcountry Hunt

Postby Panther Bone » Sun Aug 12, 2018 8:40 pm

Looking to do a backcountry hunt this year during muzzleloader or rifle season. I’ve got all the gear from western hunting and want to just get away for a few days deer hunting here at home.

I’ve lost my private land due to a death, so I’m looking at either Tellico mountains or Cumberland area.

Anybody got any advice, I’d appreciate it.

Also, I can trade guided fly fishing for good help. My family has a place above Gatlinburg too, if somebody was kind to me...I’d repay it.

Peace

North end of the plateau got hit pretty hard with EHD last year so factor that in if finding deer is important.

Yep. I literally have more bears than deer this year. Checked 3 cameras yesterday and had bears only on two of them. Handful of deer on another.

Do you know anything about tellico? Just asking as I hunt there every year as I have no other places to hunt.

I've been throwing around the idea of a bear hunt on South Cherokee the end of November, first of December. Have deer hunted the area before and saw plenty of bear sign. Harvesting without dogs is definitely a tall task but that's just an awesome area to get out and explore imo.
