I have some friends and acquaintances who hunt there regularly, and I've hunted land very close to Freedom Hills. Here's what I know:

1. There are many deer in the area including large, mature bucks.
2. Freedom Hills is a big area in which it's easy to get lost and not find your way out (stories of this almost every year up there).

A friend of mine has a spot he likes in Freedom Hills that requires him to walk about 1.5 miles from his truck into some thick mess, but he has killed some big bucks there even though it might take him all day to drag one out.

Hunted there the day before gun season opened with my wife's father. Saw some nice sign of bucks. The terrain can be a bit difficult to walk, but there are tons of deer there. He had scouted previously and cut a trail to the creek bottom where we hunted. After our morning hunt, we rode around some of the roads, huge place, lots of deep bottoms and thick brush. We saw plenty of deer, just not while we hunted. Plan to hunt it again in January.

been there a bunch of times. one of my favorite places is to go to the ranger station where they keep all the tractors and equipment and walk past the station into the the thick stuff. killed my biggest buck back there. Its a pretty good walk but worth it.

I used to really wear them out there years ago, but the manager is an individual I don't care much for, so I don't go there anymore. I never got a ticket of anything there, but he has an attitude that don't click with me so I quit going. There are alot of others like me that also stay away because of his arrogant attitude.

Back to the Deer-I even hunted in a club on the old Thomas land there for many years and killed alot of deer with my bow. It was some great hunting and the deer are starting to get some age on them in that area now. Not too much brown its down going on there. The terrain can be challenging to say the least, so go prepared for a drag if you kill one. Get away from the crowds and hunt the Northern most edges of the refuge over towards Margerum. That area has the least amount of pressure and to me the largest numbers of deer. Once you cross the road (72) it is the Riverton Management area. Good luck and hope you get a nice one.

What is the land called that surrounds coon dog cemetary? Wasn't it Thomas once? I hunted there back in the late 80s.

Freedom hills is where I do 95% of my hunting. It has a lot to do with joining my families 200 acres. There are a lot of deer on this place. Starting to see some real good bucks come off there since they went to 3 points on one side rule. I know there was a huge non typical and a 12 point killed on the first hunt last week. Most any place you hunt, you can see deer. I would definitely put it on my list to hunt at least once.
