    Hahaha, IKIC is in another part of the state. They do move midday as I bumped a buck yesterday. But the one buck I already have my number one priority on I have his bedding area down pat I believe, know his water sources, his tendencies and how he moves in the area.

    This spot is going to be a future area to check or a backup area if I bump the #1 buck.

    Blind hunting is hard and I won't set one there. Just find a spot under and behind a tree or in the brush and sit. I wouldn't feel comfortable moving stuff out of place there without them getting used to it.

    That's the plan. Set it for 3 days and see what the majority of movement looks like. And maybe spend one evening or morning on a vantage point trying to see if I can pick up bucks moving in the thick trees.

    I'll vote for the trail camera as well... I would make it a priority to get it in place as soon as possible. Your camera can do all your scouting while your hunting for your #1 buck. Load up on scent away spray so you aren't leaving a big smelly trail by the water hole.

    Good for you, keep it secret.
    I find a lot of people aren't willing to hike that far.
    I hope the next time you go up there you don't find some idiot has ridden his atv there.

    Is there much other water in the area? If there is a vantage point you can see it and some other areas from I would try that. But if you already have a buck you like spotted I would go after him first! Good Luck!!!

    Probably about 2 miles up, 1 mile right, a mile left and a mile below is water. Enough space where they should use that one spring. I decided to not waste time on it this season, and will check it out next season or whenever I draw again

    If killing the 240'' NT that is watering at it is a waste of time PM me the details and I'll go get him in smokepole season next year HAHA!!!

    A 325" was killed out of my units in 1955, so they have the genes.........
