Don't worry about which entrance. It doesn't matter. Deer are moving now. Find somewhere you like and no one else is. Sit as long as you can. You won't get a lot of action but you will see something if you're patient.

Default they are moving now

last month was a stinker, saw 1 buck on the river side and that was it, last two weekends shot 3. seems like January has been a good month for most. one of my spots is only a couple hundred yards off a road, seen deer every time i sat at that stand. for you new guys to green swamp i don't think anyone will give up their spots but ill tell you this you will do just fine if you can find a good pine patch surrounded by some cypress swamps. area with large palms are good to, i was walking a trail yesterday that was made of large palms and cypress , a monster doe was running towards me, it was finally came to a stop about 20 feet from me then just stood there for a good 30 seconds ... o boy had that been bow season. gist of the story is the deer are moving keep at it and look for those signs. fresh trails, fresh tracks, scraps and the best one of all, deer!

Thanks
as the title says, the thing about green swamp in my opinion is it takes a little time to learn, you can do what many do and just head over to the river but you will find that it gets quite crowded on that side of the swamp, Personally i always hunt 471 but I'm sure rock ridge isn't all that different, what many will tell you is scout, scout, scout, sit sit sit. there is lots and lots of deer, but they are swamp rats, its rare you will catch them in an open field.

I 7pt 132, 1 6pt 121 and a 4pt 113, the two smaller ones came out of the same spot , itís a pretty good honey hole, I see deer every time I hunt it, the bigger one came out of a pretty deep spot in the swamp, I was on foot when I shot him.

Default I guess Iíve been lucky thus far

Iíve guess Iíve been pretty lucky thus far , I started coming to gs last small game season , since then I have probably 100 miles of scouting miles and it paid off with 3 deer, Iím guessing I will be able to add a couple more next season with archery, Iíve even found a pretty good spot that should get me a turkey in March but with all that said I have yet to see a single Hog, obviously they are there, with all the rooting but crap if I know where they are bedding. Any tips , I would like one over the next 2 weekends.
