    This is my first post here. My 12 year old son was drawn for the youth hunt at peck ranch. He is very excited to go. I have not hunted peck for several years. I would like for him to have a good hunt and am seeking advice on an area to hunt and any other suggestions you guys may have. Thank you.

    It changes from year to year... generally if you find the acorns, you will find the deer. I always like to get as far off the main roads as I can.

    I will be down with my grandson for the youth hunt.. Normally just find a green field and the kids should'nt have a problem seeing deer.
    Remember they are used to seeing cars and people ... so until the shooting starts.. they dont get to alarmed .. besides I think there is only 60 kids compared to 200 hunters during the archery and muzzleloader hunts.. Widerack12 will be down with his daughter and he can give you a few tips also. You can send him a PM

    Had a good time at peck ranch. Ran into Gravedigger and his grandson, good people ! We saw several deer and a lot of elk. We did not get a shot at a deer but had a couple of opportunities. It was a good teaching and learning trip for both of us. Thanks for all the help and advice.
