I literally started a account just to reply to a great story. I 100% back the OP assessment on what it’s like to hunt our state. I do live up on the very edge of the border and am blessed to own a little bit of land I can hunt. Unfortunately I don’t see many big bucks but there are a few in the far reaches. The popularity of the upstate has increased the number of housing developments dramatically. I do believe most in my area feel like the Greenwood area has the largest deer.
