Has anyone heard about the proposed changes they were talking about in the fall?
What changes? You talking about Isportsman system thats been in affect since April?
I have never hunted Knox before. Is it to late to get in on a fall hunt this year?
Applications are in August. You're good
So guys tell me about Fort Knox. Is it a lot of trouble/hassle to bowhunt there (like Ft Campbell for example)? It would be about a 2 hour drive for me. Is it worth it for a chance at a second buck if I were to get lucky enough to tag out early in state? I know about the QDMA they've had in place and I have seen that there are quite a few nice bucks coming out of there but what caliber of deer are we really talking about there? Are there a decent number of 4+ year old bucks on the place or are most of the 3 year olds still getting sniped because they meet the 12" min spread requirement? I'm not going to go up there and shoot a deer that I wouldn't shoot on my own places just because it is public land and is a bonus buck.
Next question is... is it hard to bowhunt up there on weekends without bumping dicks with another hunter around every corner?
Any insight would be appreciated.
I guess, I was talking about the changes they were talking about last fall.
Nm about my Fort Knox questions. I finally noticed the pinned thread with all of the info (derp). I also went to the FN hunting website and looked at the photo gallery. Obviously there are some phenomenal deer at Fort Knox but it looks like the place is predominantly set up for gun hunting success which I have no interest in. Sounds like I could put in for the mid November gun hunt and then take my bow if I get a good area but the likelihood of getting drawn for an area that is any good AND that I have had time to scout seems pretty remote. I think I'll just leave it alone and let the folks who are already enjoying it have at it without me in their way. Good luck to anyone who gets in there this coming year.
Think this is what you were asking about:
