Default Deer hunting on the skyline drive?

I will be hunting this area with the muzzleloader this year. Any recommendations, pointers or knowledge about the area would really help. What is the best way to hunt this area?

Goofy is right(did I just say that?). I was taught that if you weren't moving/hiking/pushing you were not doing it right. Don't get me wrong, that upbringing in hunting makes it easier today (especially since I grew up hunting Avintaquin). However, do that to get away from the crowds and set up early and glass. It is kind of fun just watching the deer putting the slip on hunters from that vantage point. Good luck!

Been up there between Potters and Joes Valley scouting and can tell you there are plenty of bucks running around. Found a few monsters that I'm hoping to get a chance at come archery season. Like was said set up on a ridge and glass. And prepare to get off the road. That area gets hit hard.
I would recommend an ATV on the Skyline Dr south of Hwy 31. That road can get real tricky when wet.
