Hi all, I am trying to hunt a new area this year during archery season. I am planning a week long trip for this hunt the last week of August/1st week of Sept ending on labor day.

This forest is heavily timbered with various types of pine. The area's general peaks are around 8,000-10,000 ft. There is good water throughout the area, plus some natural meadows and a few clearings from old logging operations now suspended.

I have DeLormes 6.0 topo program and have looked at google earth satellite images of the area as well. The timber goes on forever and I'm wondering if I am getting into an area that will take forever to scout since it is so thick. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions with hunting this type of terrain?
