What gets me even on scout days, I will walk miles over the place and not jump up one single deer. Go scout Lbl, Chuck Swan, Catoosa and I guarantee you will jump deer. Yes ,I agree they hold up in thick cover but still am convinced the numbers are just not there anymore and Ornl wants every single deer harvested that they can, and they will never put the point restriction back in place. so it is what it is.

Then the hunts must be accomplishing what ORNL wants them to.

Heck. I was in my stand an hour before daylight. Two jerks start walking up a deer trail that I had prepared for. I flash my flashlight at them. They don't stop, they walked right up to me, waved said they were heading to their stand. I was pissed. I had walked up on people, and turned and walked away out of respect, these two guys were just plain jerks. I about walked to the truck right after that. The pure disrespect is what gets me. What ever happened to "sportsmanship".

I hunted the very first hunt ever out there I believe it was 1985. I was 12 yrs old. My dad and I have put in for it every year since. So it is a special place for me and him to spend time there together and to get hunt. Every hunt I expect to get walked over by hunters and I usually do so I just expect the worse and hope for the best every time.

The deer numbers are definitely lower. Was it two or three years ago that ehd hit the area hard. Not to mention 2 deer with no antler restrictions. Personally I'd like to see a comprimose, a doe and a buck that is at least a 6pt. First two or three years I bowhunted Park City I saw no less than 10 deer a day. Last couple years I've seen 1 doe while on stand.

I agree it sucks for people to walk in on you ... But if you already had a stand hung that you were planning on hunting all day would you turn around and leave?

As someone who drives down 95 and Blair Rd everyday I say kill 'em all! Lol. I remember driving down Bear Creek at night and seeing herds of 20. I also remember a massive amount of road kill and tore up vehicles.

I spent 10 hours on Saturday and Sunday morning just off of Bear Creek Rd. across Haul Rd. where the powerline is and didn't see the first deer. The area looked real good with plenty of sign but not one deer!

I was just after the first guard shack on the left. Behind the power lines most of saturday. TONS of good sign, no deer. Heck there was a fresh scrape on the underground gasline area. Spent the last part of the day on the south east side of the area close to the river. Once again, no sign.
