RE: Sleepy Cat in GMU 12?
Don't know about Sleepy Cat; however, I can say from my experience that a lot of camps close together along a roadgenerally means you are in the right locale, the remaining question is when you leave base camp and head out to hunt"which direction and how far fromcamp is the "zone" and "can you find it in the dark?" Getting set up before sunrise all blended in and waiting and then following the plan is key in IMHO.
Two days extra scouting on the front endis worth more than the last two days of the season, get the strategy figured and then make the first days count. Especially without horses,the majority ofhunters will be effectively spent in three days of hard hunting on foot, not all, but most.
Personally I enjoy high pressure hunting areas, especially if you can put allthose other hunters to work for you, kind of like and "Indian Tiger Hunt" where the game is driven right to you.
Never go undergunned, always check the sight in, perform at showtime.
Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make them all yourself.
