    I have hunted it in WV quite a bit, hills isn't exactly what I would call them. Back in the day I could take it pretty good. I would quit before I would attempt it now. SMH

    I just spent a few days on the Sheltowee Trace in Daniel Boone. Man, that is some pretty country. Saw a mature buck track bigger than I have ever seen in NC. Also saw an old guy dropping a duece trailside, but hey, thats another story.

    Picture a combination right wing, libertarian, unabomber, conservational, nationalist who believes in reverent science and who, to his core, remembers the words he swore to "defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic........so help me God"

    That was where I learned my lesson at a younger age, don't trust people from the mountains when they say "it ain't bad, we have some rolling hills, there are some steep spots but most places ain't bad". First off their hills are MOUNTAINS, and when it gets to what they call steep you better have rappelling gear.

    I am starting to get use to the mountains. The good thing, I have learned to be more patient. Sometimes it's a lot of work to go see what's over that next ridge.......

    That's about as true as it gets. And those hills make scent control a nightmare if there's any wind. Personally I love hunting the mountains, but if you're not accustomed to it it can make hard work.
