Not on the open ridges no, most often they'll cruise 1/3 of the way down from the top on the downwind side. MTNF is tough hunting unless you know what you're looking for. Get to know a topo map well. ID the doe bedding areas, then find the acorns. Look for diversity in habitat. Open woods don't hold deer. Look for cover and clearcuts or disturbed areas. I like to hunt pipelines and/or power lines that get cut every few years or so since many deer feed there when there's no ag fields for miles. Plus bucks like to cruise along powerlines/pipelines for does bedded and feeding in them. Look for brushy hollows that go up to the ridge and connects with another brushy hollow on the other side, I've had luck hunting the top of those hollows for cruising bucks. Look for several ridges meeting together. Good luck.
