Don't be overly surprised if there are a lot of vehicles at Poosey for the next several weeks especially during early morning and evening hours. It has been reported that a 200 class whitetail has been spotted on the CA, if you remember Scott Fowler of Florida harvested a monster whitetail at Poosey in Sept of 2004.



The deer that has been sighted on more than one occasion is expected to be as big or bigger than the Fowler buck which is creating a big stir so the area will be flooded I can assume. I'm not saying we shouldn't ride but I wanted people to be aware of the possible heavy traffic at Poosey.

I think the only time they actually close it is during rifle deer season.....we just try to be respectful to the hunters so they can do their thing!!! Its going to be very wet out there for awhile....it could take for ever to dry out with all the rain!!!
Once all the leaves fall and deer season is over the trailbuilding will begin from what i hear!!! I cant wait....i love that place!!!!

I just saw this post today. I did ride out there yesterday and did not see any cars or hunters anywhere.

I saw some people at the boat ramp fishing.

I saw some fresh tire prints so someone was up there riding probably last weekend. I keep thinking I'm going to come around the corner at lot 17 and actually see someone in that deer stand.

When I used to be walking the terrain looking for lines for new trail, I'd come across these huge deer stands with high platforms and all the stairs. They would be back in the boonies not to far off the service roads that are off limits to vehicles-hint, hint. They are not so easy to access now, since they quit maintaining a couple of the service roads. I haven't seen any fresh tracks in the creek crossing by the trail since last year.

I don't know what a 200 deer is. I'd be more concerned about a 200 mountain lion. I talked to Scott Fowler one day last month when I was working out there cutting out some logs. He introduced himself and asked if I was Doug Long. He likes our trails. Scott would love to see all the rifle hunting north of A. I told him not to hold his breath on that wish.

We obviously need to keep the channels of communication open and be respectful of all the users at Poosey. We can all work together and continue to make this a "win-win" situation and continue to prove that we can coexist and both use these public lands that "we" are all paying for with our tax dollars.
