I've done some searches on here and found some info from other members, but I was wondering if anyone had any tips for royal blue? I might go try it out this weekend or early next week. I wonder if the south end is worth going to? My biggest issue is that it is so big, and I don't know where to start. I don't want to confine myself to one stand and not have a clue where I am. I would rather walk around and find places and hunt at the same time. I am not afraid to put miles on my boots.

I have found that the higher elevations are less productive as it gets colder, and areas with easy access get a lot of pressure

You'll definitely need to scout rather than just putting a stand somewhere. I'd walk right at dawn and when you find a saddle in a ridge that has some sign I'd sit to watch it.

You must not be from around here. If you hear banjos, well, you are on your own.

It is not for the weak-hearted! I used to see deer up high, but after some poor mast production in some areas the deer seem to have headed lower. Also there has a good bit of logging in certain areas which tends to attract deer due to the cover and browse.

I have a buddy that is seeing deer up high right now, but expect that to change when the cold weather gets here. Just hope they don't run off into one of the deep holes, it might take everything you have to get it out.
