JB, those odds aren't very different than any archery elk hunt. I know a guy that hunted it 3 years ago and ate his tag but he did find elk and had some chances but nothing quite came together. He found a couple monsters preseason but they aren't dumb out there.
I would never hunt archery out there again. I think all hunters had trouble in 2015. The access has muzzle load and rifle hunters all over the archery hunters while they scout for their season. I have some tips that may help you be successful if you want to hunt with a rifle. Message me and I can send you my phone. I would be happy to share what a know.
The thread started in November 2015, so not a year. And he was specifically asking about a hunt for 2016, so since that hunting season he was planning for hasn't even started yet, I submit that the responses are still very relevant...and probably appreciated.
Probably not all that comical, when you think about it.
It still helps if someone else searches Deep Creeks even a year or two from now. I wish I would have known what I now know from hunting it and I would have turned my archery tag back in. I searched from years past when I went and didn't find much. Perhaps its not so comical unless your just an ___hole or not too smart (not sure which is worse). Probably won't even understand the implication. -O,-
