Was that Dave? I camp there off/on during the season and have see your group there. I don't think there's more than one group from Fl. Probably met you.

QKidd....

You need to get out and scout. I would bet my last dollar that each training area has at least 1 130 class buck on it. And yes, the SA's have large deer on it because most border the impact area and the deer wonder over. Also, you can't hunt the impact area because of unexploded ordinance. I seriously doubt anyone on this board is going to point you to the area where they've seen or killed a nice buck.

AP Hill does keep an album with pics that usually list the area killed, don't know about weight. I would recommend you calling them or visiting them during turkey season. This time of year, the hunting operation is run mostly by mwr who don't know too much about the areas. The numbers are listed on their website: http://www.aphill.army.mil/sites/mwr/huntinginfo.asp

Gather all the info they give you, get your permit and take some nice long walks in the areas.

UFunny2, it was not Dave that killed either of them. The 16pt was killed by Teddy, and the 14pt by James. We do hunt with Dave and he comes down to Florida once a year to go fishing. I probably have met you if you stay at the campground on base. Last year I killed an 8pt with a 22 inch spread that scored between 120 and 130 rough score. And a 6pt with a 26.5 inch spread.

You could also try the Perimeter Stands. They actually go into the SA areas. Some of the PA stands are hot. Especially the ones around SA4 and SA5 if the ever open up the areas.

Deer will be moving during bow season, it's just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. During the last week of bow alot of the smaller bucks start chasing some does. The bigger bucks usually start a week or so later. It's common to see 2 - 5 small bucks chasing 1 doe.

As for body weight it usually ranges from 95 to 125 dressed. Not much different than here in Florida. The average weight actually increased from last year to close to 120 lbs dressed. Two years ago the acorn crop was bad at the base.
