Welcome to the forum 2dogs. Those are some awesome deer! Looks like you're up there in the area where I grew up hunting around Skyline. My family was in a club in Paint Rock Valley when I was a kid. Some of our states biggest deer come out of those mountains now.

Yep, I live at the foot of Skyline. I started deer hunting in PRV in the mid 70's, before there were any clubs. Been a while, but I brought some good uns' out of there about 25-30 years ago. That's a fine area.

I still have some family that hunts around Crowe Mountain and Hollytree that I go with every now and then. How are you hunting those mature deer in the mountains? They can be tough to kill.

I own my place, have for 25 years.Timber is checkerboarded, large,quality plots in the center. Shoot does in bow season and early gun season in several areas, not too much shooting in one place. Have some good neighbors. We keep it quite as possible. I know the land and deer very well, and run a few cameras. I stay out of areas where I know I want to hunt a big buck till late pre-rut or early breeding period. I wait till I think he might move in daylight, then I set up on him. Luck always helps!

Congrats on some dandy Alabama bucks 2Dogs, I hunted skyline back in the late 70's and remember it was one of the few places that had deer back then. You guys remember Flat Woods?
