Everyone that can walk, crawl, and breathe  oh yeah, throw in the aunt, uncle, brother, sister and the whole family and friends that will be there.  When they open the gate's it looks like a Nascar rolling start!!!!!  I honestly have never hunted any place as packed as the vail tree farm.  Good luck to ya'll who go there, be careful, be safe and I hope for nothing but success for ya'll.

I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian

I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with "Guess" on it...so I said "Implants?"

Crowded elevators smell different to midgets.

I wouldn't set foot in there on opening day.  You will see more pumpkins on opening day than deer year round.

There were something like 5000 people opening weekend last year and only 125 deer came through the checkpoint. What they need to do is shut it down for a few years and let them little toe heads grow up instead of having everyone pack them out. just my 2 :twocents:
Some animals WERE harmed in the making of this Hunter. They were also dragged through the dirt, butchered and tasted delicious fried with butter and bacon.

I live a couple miles down the road from the main gate and wouldn't deer hunt during the rifle seaon in there if you payed me!  I get sick of seeing one after the other gut shot spikes and does with 4,5,7 bullet holes in them.  An old friend of mine has been working the check station for many years and every year he swears is going to be his last.  He has some really sickening stories and pictures of some of the junk that goes on up there.  No thanks!

Why is this such a crowded place? I know it's close and an easy drive but are there enough deer there to justify having that many of people there? From what other posters have said it's a zoo there.

No there are not enough deer to justify that many people.  It is just a lot of logging roads conecting one clear cut to another with some timber in between.  It is mostly "hunters" from the city who roadhunt and make a mess of the place.  It is like the combat fishing at Bouy 10 but only with trucks and guns.  If it is warm for the opener you might as well stay home.  They do take some nice bucks out of there but usually during the late season.  There are a lot fewer people during the late hunt and some of the bucks are in the rut.   Hike into a good patch of timber, sit and wait and you have a much better chance.  I know a bunch of loggers who pull dandys out of there every year but they work their butts off for them.

I'll be on the east side for opening weekend but will be there this weekend w/ my oldest boy who drew the early youth tag.
He drew it 2 years ago & we saw tons of deer before he shot his buck. Went last year for opening day & it was crazy & we only saw a few does.
Did anyone elses kids draw the early youth hunt?
