I got drawn for the PC 9/20 archery quota hunt. I've not hunted PC before and I'm hoping someone will have some tips or possibly let me tag along for a hunt?

If I were to go back to PC (it has been many years since I have hunted it), I would try to key in on some of the property off of the mountain that does not get as much pressure, or edges of the mountain at draws where deer come and go. Also, look for cover.

When I hunted it in the past on the top of the mountain, the people who scoouted out good spots did not fair so well, but those who just showed up and randomly walked into the woods got deer.

Not a lot of deer taken out there in the past 3 years. My first year out there, both my buddies killed on the first morning. We didn't even see a deer the next year. Then last year, we got covered up with deer Sat afternoon. My buddy missed 3 times. Then a small buck came by me and I took a shot. It hit him in the shoulder and only penetrated about 2 inches. Hunted the same spot the next morning then looked for him and never saw a drop of blood.

I think there's 5 of us going this year.

Look for escape routes and cuts on the rim and stay all day. Where snake boots and permethrine! That early hunt is a tough one, but you can get one and the place has cranked out some toads!

Does anybody know if there is a primitive camp anywhere near PC. Got the 9/20 archery hunt.

When you pull in to PC, there is camping areas on both sides of the road. Campers normally on the left and tents normally on the right. There's even one spot just outside the gate by the firing range that somebody normally claims.

Watch for snakes. Find deer trails going off the sides. I've always done better the farther off the side I go.
