    New NC hunter, hunted by deer drives,still hunting and from the ground my whole life up in the Virginia mountains, always in the woods before sun-up and came out in the dark. Been hunting here a couple years now, what works best here, get in the tree before sun up and spend the day or go with the hunt times? The area I am hunting has no presure and is archery only year round,it has planted bean fields surrounded by hardwoods.

    Welcome to the site...I used to be in the same Boat as you being from West Va. Back Home we hunted mast on a Oak Flat (Bench)...They do hunt different here in NC but I learned to adapt myself LOL...I had never Baited,Hunted from a Tree-Stand ETC until I moved here...Whichever way you decide to hunt, You will learn alot of the users of this Site....Good Luck

    Welcome to the site. We have a lot of tree climbers here mostly because the land is flatter than VA.

    I would hunt the lunar times tommorrow which are approximately 3:45 to 5:45pm. There is a minor window at 9:30 to 10:30am. Haven't made my mind up yet but if it's early....I'm wearing thermals. I about froze my butt off tonight!

    Lunar Times
    Well like I say hunt the lunar times.
    I went this morning in the ground blind. Minor time was 9:30 to 10:30am. Big Doe walks out at 9:45am. She's at 70 yards and going away. The wind was blowing right to her so I figured she was gonna bust me any minute. I draw back, take aim.....WHAM. Holy cow....that ground blind acts like an amplifier...I was deaf....she herd it and the arrow went right behind her because she was heading out 5 feet before the arrow got to her! Dang.....I don't like this ground blind thing for bow hunting!
