Years ago Thousand Lake was a kick-butt area, I have heard the herd has been depleted. I'd bet a dedicated guy could still find nice bucks, but there are better areas.
I have heard the gene-pool in the Vernan area came from the Pons.
I drew the Thousand tag way back when, saw some nice deer, ended up tagging one I found, some jerk-wad wounded him 'an left him... shot through the tenderloins!
If you are after a 24 inch 4 point not a bad choice still have to hunt a little but should find one. They seem to kill one great big buck off of there every other year or so but I agree with the last post I think there are better places to spend your money.
It would probably have a larger herd if we could convince those Wayne County boys to play by the same rules we all do. HA HA just playin don't want to start any fist fights
