Made to the top of Chilhowee Mountain this weekend. It was a rough trek but well worth the view. Half a mile straight up, and 8 miles hiked all together. What i found was there were signs of deer but no particular patterns, just sort of a couple spread out rubs and a trail here n' there. and the occasional fresh bear scat as well. This terrain is something else. Its probably the closest thing to "out west hunting" that one could get here in TN. Long hikes, long drags, and plenty of glassing. Everything from Thick Rhodo & mtn laurel, to open hardwoods & logged cuts. Hunting in places like that ain't for the faint of heart.
