I heard one of the PCHC officers say one morning if "it's mostly brown, it's down". He had just finished skinning one that still had spots.

I used to hunt there next to the lake. I killed the biggest deer of my life there. There wasn't as many, but they were big. I think they call that club, God's Country Hunting Club, now. The guy who use to run it had some problems. I believe a new group has it.


I hunted that place years ago when it was Paint Creek HC. Absolute worst club I’ve ever been in. I saw 0 deer and heard 0 turkeys. Saw several deer with spots hanging from the skinning pole at the camp. I got out and joined Southeastern HC just across the road. A world of difference. Killed several nice bucks and a butt load of turkeys from SEHC.


Hunted paint creek as a guest when I was 18. Heard a turkey gobble on a 26 degree morning while fee hunting but saw zero deer. Point me!


Quack quack.

This man knows what he is talking about. I was in Paint Creek when Regan had it. (The year the fellow got killed in the camper fire.) It spoke volumes to me how the officers and longer-term members couldn't wait for the management area hunts. Zero deer and very few turkeys.


Raegan is posting ads all on FB looking for members. Claims to have 5400 acres now. Wonder if he picked up the rest of the old Paint Creek property?

It says some is on lay and some is next to the wma. I’m guessing he got some of paints old land and some of the wma that they lost.


Would walk over a naked woman to get to a gobblin turkey!

I hunted in Paint Creek for 1 year. Saw a pig. No deer and no turkey! I don't blame him for shooting a spotted fawn...I may have been tempted. Lol. I'm joking but that was a LONG season!

I killed 3 deer the year I was in paint and shot another nice buck but pretty sure it was a leg hit. The rest of the club killed 17-20 deer that year with a lot of them never seeing a deer. It was a bad club.

For those saying the hunting in the Paint Creek/God's Country/Backwaters HC area was terrible - how long ago did you hunt it? The Backwaters land looked awesome in February when I toured it - really nice green fields with deer tracks and turkey crap everywhere. Seemed to have it together with the 3.5 rule, feeding program, restricted ATV/truck access to the property, ~130 acre/member, etc. I usually stay off the greenfields and hunt longer and harder than most others so if there's good deer there, I believe I can find and kill them. If they're not there though, I'm just screwed! LOL!

If you hunt hard you can kill a deer but it’s been 12 years since I hunted it actually.
