    Fulton county deer

    Have only been to the area 1 time, but I was thinking of making a trip down there this fall for a 5 day bow hunt. I own land off of Slippery Rock rd. and was wondering if it is worth the effort and time. Hows the deer population in this part of the state in general?

    Thanks, Carl

    We own land on 9 mile ridge, and have done well every year up there for the past 7 years or so since we bought the land. I haven't killed a lot of monsters, but have taken 3 decent 8's, and more does than I care to count over those years. I'm not a big trophy hunter, just a redneck who likes to hunt his land on the weekends, but I would feel pretty certain that in a 5 day trip, you could stand more than a fair chance of getting a nice doe or 2, with a chance on a decent ARKANSAS buck. you being from wisconsin and all, I don't want you mistaking what we call a decent buck down here, lol.

    If it is any indication, we did a float trip on the spring river this weekend, and back and forth to the cabin we had encounters seeing deer 4 or 5 times this past weekend.

    Couldn't give you a census count or anything, but Fulton definitely can hold it's own for arkansas deer hunting.

    Thanks for the info BowFreak, I have been on this sight long enough to know that AR. has some fine deer, lol. I visted the land 2 years ago and really liked the area. Is there alot of public land in that area?

    I do most of my deer hunting in Fulton county. It is one of the top counties in North Arkansas for deer population. There is very little public land in the county.
    If you have woods and sit in a good place in 5 days you should definitely get to shoot.

    That area isn't known for the size of deer that you will find in the rich and fertile delta but there are nice bucks taken there every year.

    I hunt north Sharp County which is real close to where Bowfreak is talking about on 9 mile ridge. I've actually hunted 9 mile ridge some in the past.

    As has been said, you shouldn't have any problem seeing deer.

    You might think about getting with a member on here that is close. Depending on how much land you have let them set up stands and feeder for you inreturn for a little hunting on the place. Just a thought.

    None is Sharp County either.

    Sounds like a Zone 12 trip is what he needs.

    Fulton county is one of my favorite places to bowhunt. Think it is very underrated. I will say this though, it's been my experience in that area that if your're not there hunting it, there is a high likelihood someone else is.

    Ain't it the truth. Had a guy walk up and sit down by my feeder this past season with me sitting in a climber 19 yards from it, took me finally whistling for him to notice me. Then found a turkey blind left from turkey season last weekend. Both smack dab in the middle of my land with pretty little signs every 50 feet atound the boundary... even out in the woods.

    Thanks bud. Do me a favor please. Take your bud light cans when you go too... I hate policing them up while scouting.

    quax, the same thought has run through my head, but not much I can really do about that and seeing that the land is not something I plan to hunt much, I guess at least someone may be using it. I bought the property because it was so cheap and taxes are only 30 bucks per year.

    Thanks for the replies guys.
