Welcome to eastern NC where a

Welcome to eastern NC where a "thicket" is more than a couple of trees, most times they're impenetrable. Stock up on the deet & thermacell refills. You wouldn't want to get the West Nile virus. 

There are some impoundments on the game lands you're hunting, plus you always have the river to duck hunt. Good luck & good hunting!

Not going to make opening day, probably hunt Sunday afternoon though.

A few pics from the stand...

A few pics from the stand... Had to go back out and cut some branches out of the way and hang some pee wicks on the trail lol... We're set up right on the edge of a large corn field. We've seen deer and turkeys everything we've gone into the area so it should be a good spot. I'm not sure if they'll cut the corn or not but I'm hoping they will before muzzleloader starts.

Well I got my permit hunt

Well I got my permit hunt results back this morning. Ended up drawing 7 differnt hunts 6 of them being less than 5 miles from the house. I'll be hunting all season by the looks of it...

It's strange how the NC permit hunt choices go... I had to select 5 choices and I  ended up getting all of my choices except 2.  :thumbsup1: 

 

I  was hoping to get one or two choices not 80% of them lol...

Big game in Yonkers!!!

Today driving to work down the saw mill I saw giant gobbler after gobbler right in Yonkers!! I saw two bucks one with about a 20 inch spread and a much smaller one eating alongside the highway with a few miles of the Bronx!

no dice on opening day.

no dice on opening day. Spooked a few on the walk out from the stand this morning... didn't see anything but skeeters. Probably caught malaria or west nile possibly both lol. I thought the skeeters in FL were bad but man NC isn't much better.

Gonna move the stand tomorrow since there's no hunting game lands on sunday...

I was waiting on your recap.

I was waiting on your recap. Sorry to hear it was a bust but at least you were out in the woods. I was thinking about getting one of those Thermocell things because I don't think I will be without the skeeters come the 29th in SE Ohio.
