    I live here in Garner and in need of help. I grew up in eastern NC and never had to worry about places to hunt. There are very few opportunities in this area. I needs websites, suggestions, or anything to help find land to hunt for free or leasing. I need a place to turkey hunt extremely bad. I do have a little place to deer hunt but that is all it produces is a few deer now and then. I began turkey hunting when I was in my teens and I really have a knack for it and love it. I have taken 4 turkeys with the bow. Three of those held the were at one time #1 in NC with a bow according to NWTF records. Also 3 of the 4 were taken without the use of a blind. As you can see I really love it. I need some help. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Hope everyone is having a great yr thus far. Saw some really great deer on the forum this yr and congrats to all. As for me I never saw a buck I wanted to shoot, so I worked on the does a little. I did let some 15-16 in bucks walk so hopefully next yr? Had 2 on camera I might have considered shooting had I seen them in daylight but that didn't happen. Again, thanks for any info.

    GOOD LUCK!!!
    Hello jtr, How you been? Was wondering about ya through the season...Just knew you would Kill a Gooddun...Brother I tell ya, Hunting is gonna be a rich mans Game before Long...It's about there now...People are paying Hard earned money to hunt places where the previous years hunters shot everything if they wasn't planing on hunting there the following year and it's just sad..I work with a Guy who Got in a Club that has a reputation as a PRIME Club and he didn't take a deer in 2 years...The Fees/ $1000 a year PLUS...If each member doesn't take at least 2 Does, It's $150 fine each...So 2 Years in a PRIME Club and he spent $2600, Not counting Feed,Gas ETC...It's just SAD!!! He was charged for NOT killing 4 Does and even though he seen a few Does early Season, Paying what he was, He expected a Wall-Hanger and when he needed to take his Does...It was too Late!!!

    Hey GT and Viper
    The twins are great. Hope all is well with both of you. Good to hear from you. Was really hoping to get a chance to meet yall at the DDC last year. I spent the entire Saturday running back and forth to the NWTF turkey calling competition. Complete waste of the entire day and my money. So GT, never enter that contest. Very poorly organized. Judges coming out from behind the curtain while certain people were calling. All day they kept telling me it would probably be 45 min before I was up. That started at 0945. I called at 1500. Maybe this year since I won't be wasting my time and money I will get to look around and maybe bump into yall. That is if the girls cooperate. They may not cooperate though b/c they like to go upstairs now and point at my mounts and say 'deer.' Then they want to touch em and if I don't pick em up to touch the deer they become very upset. Afraid they may get a little upset at the DDC. So anyway, like I said, hope yall are doing great. Keep me in mind if either of you figure out some trick to finding land. And by the way I would have posted some trail cam pics but I have these Spy-point cams now which I love but the pictures will not upload to this site. They are the right format just something must be tweeked a little different. Talk to yall soon

    I pay around $1000 a year for dues plus I hunt about 45 miles away from home. But my club has a little over 4000 acres and not alot of members. Here are the last few that I have killed not to mention some nice does that go over 100lbs. Plus my son killed his first deer this year so its worth every penny to me.

    Where you huntin Sharkbait? GT I know exactly what you're sayed. You know there are things that should be rigged such as duck decoys, fishing spreads, etc. Not calling contests. I'd like to see those guys with all the hands movements actually trying to call in a real bird and see how well they do.!
