There are some great bucks and great populations east of knoxville.. definitely not as dense as west Tn. But they can be found, I used to hunt a farm in Cocke county that had an awesome population of deer with some GREAT bucks, probably the best place I have hunted in Tn.

ON AVERAGE, the deer of East TN are smaller than the deer of Middle and West TN, but that doesn't mean some East TN deer won't be top-end. Such a wide range of potential sizes exist in any given location that even in a below average area a few will be top-end.

I would guess you killed old spikes and 3 pts,and VERY young 7 or 8 pts then,thats sure not the norm.

I grew up in Harlan County and, yes, it is much the same terrain there as in East TN.

I've talked to some game wardens and taxidermist, the last few years there has been a large increase in pope and young sized deer killed in our area and county.
