late season doesnt help either

also as you know it is very late in the season so if you have any good post rut tips or tricks that would be great.

First off i want to say thank you for fighting and serving this country!!!!:thumbup: As for me if i had quite a few days to hunt and wanted to try and make it successful. I would take the first day or two and go back and scout that same place again to see if you have any does or any (hunters)already there. because you dont want to spend the hole time there if there is nothing happening........just my suggestion. But if you are gonna be hunting the rut i always think of it like this. hunt where the does are because the bucks will be close behind. but anyways that is my two sense so im sure some one else has some better info. But happy hunting and happy holidays.

Fort Campbell is not far from me. I have always heard there is some good hunting there. I'm not sure if that is considered Kentucky or Tennessee. Either way, Land Between the Lakes is only about 20 miles from there and a good place to hunt. It is a 185,000 acres of public land run by the forestry department. The area runs in both KY & TN. This time of year there isn't hardly anyone there and the place is wide open for archery hunters. I hunt up there regularly on the KY side. SO, if the Kentucky liscense is what you buy I'd be glad to set you up with a place to hunt. If the TN liscense I can steer you in a direction up there. Being military I think you can get resident liscense in either state....not sure on that. If you want my help, just holler.

I'll ditto the above remarks regarding the service to our country. Thank you! Couple of things to add to the previous posts, if you catch any of this snow it will help to show you the travel routes. I don't know your area's secondary rut period, but you may catch some of that. Look for food, travel routes, stay scent free, and good luck!

if your speaking of the area i am going to try and hunt its really thick around it then there is a small clearing by small a mean 60 yds x 30 yds and an acorn grove about 250-300 yds away but from inside you cant see it. i have seen does walkthrough there and spooked some out while mid-day scouting. so they move through there as far as i know. Well that was in sept when i was on R&R leave
