Welcome Dan. Same story here. I have been hunting public land in Oregon like 7 or 8 years. Congrats on the 150.
I got out Sat Oct 3 for the first time. I found an apple tree the year before last. It is near the crest of a finger that comes off of a larger ridge. There werent many apples on it last year, but this year there are like 50 apples on it. There was not a single one on the ground with plenty of tracks. I am set up on the crest about 35 yards to the east. there is also a subtle saddle 27 yards to my south that has a well used trail though it. There is a bedding area to my south, and the finger runs north/south. The wind didn't cooperate for me. Supposed to be west, but it was variable ALL DAY. It was raining off and on, and the forest was dripping all morning. I jumped one deer on the main trail of the park in the pre-dawn dark. I heard something crash behind me while on stand, but dont know if a branch fell or if a deer busted me. I ended up leaving early, because I didnt want to educate the deer. Did see two adult does in the clover around 4PM
