Panola Mountain 2017
 
1 Attachment(s)
The time is here! I’ve been looking forward to being able to hunt this place for several years.

I got there at daylight this morning and hung my stand. Had to wait on a doe and shooter buck to leave the area before I could go in. Talked to an old black man that works the property and he said deer and buck numbers seemed to be up over the last 2 years.

They’re doing some major construction on THE PLACE though, which has some access points off limits right now. Basically the only way in or out of the park today is through the front. They’ll open up more tomorrow but I’m hoping the 4.5 mile hike to where my stand is will deter a lot of hunters... I slipped through the open construction gate before it was locked and hung my stand easily. :lolhammer:

Stay tuned.

That’s where my stand is.:cheer:

Shooter buck was on the far side but had one side broke off. Doe was standing 5’ from the tree where I hung my stand. It was hard to find a decent tree in that block of woods though...it looked like the last storm blew several nice, straight oaks over.

There are great places just fifty yards off the bike paths.

I think I heard only 24 showed up.

They’ve got us all staged at the gate right now. Waiting until 5:30 to cut us loose.
