    FOR ALL YOU GUYS OUT THERE:

    AFTER SOME EFFORT I AM NOW RECEIVING THE COPIES OF OVER 200 LETTERS SENT THAT BLINDSIDED THE 09-10 HUNTING SEASONS.
    I WILL READ EACH AND EVERY ONE AND WILL LIST CONSENSUS FACTS DERIVED FROM THEM.

    I WILL ALSO ON REQUEST AFTER READING THEM PROVIDE COPIES TO ANY OF YOU GUYS THAT WANT TO STOP THIS ASSASSINATION OF BIOLOGICALLY SOUND DECISIONS WITH EMOTION AND SELF SERVING ELETISTS.

    IT IS NOT TOO LATE FOR NEXT YEAR-GUYS WE ARE BEING HIT BY A BIG BUS HERE. MORE TO FOLLOW NEXT MONTH!!-FRANK

    FELLOW HUNTERS NEED TO WAKE UP AND SETTLE THESE JERKS WITH THE N.C. BOWHUNTERS ASSOCIATION.

    THIS GROUP IS NOT ONLY SELF-SERVING,BUT DETRIMENTAL TO THE DEER HUNTING IN THIS STATE. IF THERE IS ANY REDEEMING ASPECT OF THIS ASSOCIATION IT ESCAPES ME AND A MULTITUDE OF OTHER HUNTERS.

    A GROUP OF SO CALLED ELITE PURISTS, THEY SEEM TO BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE ON THE CUTTING EDGE OF BIOLOGY AND THE HUNTING PULSE. THEIR WHINING AND SNIVILING UNCTOUS AIRS ARE DISGUSTING TO SAY THE LEAST.

    LET'S HOPE OUR LEGISLATORS DON'T STAY UNDER THE SPELL OF THIS NONSEQUTUR GROUP. ENOUGH OF THEM ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR AND CONTGRATULATIONS TO THE HUNTERS WHO HAVE POSTED THIS YEAR. DID NOT GET TO HUNT MUCH MYSELF-GALL BLADDER SURGERY AND COMPLICATIONS KEPT ME OUT OF THE WOODS. HOPE 2009 IS A GREAT YEAR FOR ALL OF YOU!!!!!!

    I AM WONDERING IF ANY OTHER HUNTERS HAVE SEEN MOUNTAIN LIONS IN N.C. MY SON AND I WATCHED ONE FOR 5-10 MINUTES NEAR THE PARKWAY IN ASHE CO. A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. WE ALSO FOUND A DEER KILL THAT HAD BEEN COVERED IN THAT AREA. A FRIEND REPORTED THE OTHER WEEK HE RECENTLY SAW ONE NEAR MILE MARKER 250 ON THE PARKWAY CROSS THE ROAD. ANYBODY ELSE?

    A comment titled: HEARINGS in response to a report titled: Public Hearings

    Yep there are a few armadillos here now.When I hunt in Georgia they are always running around. Season is open year round which makes for some great off season hunting. They eat 'em in Texas but in Georgia they say they carry a disease like leopersy so I haven't tried them.

    I agree-buck quality is really strting to come up. I only shot does this year because no bucks really where ready for the wall/pan.

    Good luck old buddy. I am headed down to my uncle's this afternoon for one more go at the17 inch ten pointer. Kinda sad to see the season go and watch the last sunset for a while. Oh well-scounting to be done and turkeys aren't too far off.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL YOU GIRLS AND GUYS! YOU ARE WONDERFUL.

    A comment titled: ???????? in response to a report titled: ?????????

    i think most of the rut was done at night. a lot of sign but not a lot of chasing. i have seen a good number of bucks,none of them shooters for me. so i have shot 4 good does since my family eats deer like a house afire.

    been awfully warm,and i don't think much running was done in daylight. most of the bucks i have seen have been early a.m. or right at dark. this winter will be a good time to think up new stategies since warm weather in deer season seems to be getting the normal.

    i am heading back east to moore co. there is a real whopper on my uncle's farm and time is running out. good luck to all you guys.

    A comment titled: GIVE UP?? in response to a report titled: ready to give up

    i would never quit. like they all have said we go thru ups and downs. the only huge buck i've seen was in georgia and my bullet was deflected. so what? i've taken six fat does-4 in n.c. and 2 in georgia. one of them was a trophy to me-she was taken in georgia and must have weighed 160lbs or so-biggest one i've ever taken. hang in there buddy,like it's been said it happens suddenly.

    amen holt-the beauty of the morning and seeing a new day born. wishing all of you guys a very wonderful Christmas.

    A comment titled: wayne co. in response to a report titled: Wayne county buck

    it appears that this was an illegal kill. what a slap in the face to all of us guys who hunt legal.pretty typical of this generation that some of them cheat thru school,so i guess cheating at hunting comes next. what a pos little sociopath!

    A comment titled: FAI R CHASE in response to a report titled: What happened to honest hunting?

    I AGREE WITH THE FARMER COMMENT. SEEMS LIKE AN AWFUL LOT OF DEPREDATION PERMITS BEING GIVEN OUT. I MYSELF HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS SO CALLED HORRIBLE CROP LOSS. THE FARMER THAT PLANTS MY UNCLE'S SAYS HE JUST PLANTS ALITTLE EXTRA FOR THE DEER,SAID THEY GOTTA EAT TOO.

    A comment titled: WILKES COUNTY in response to a report titled: Anybody know Wilkes County?

    I have hunted wilkes for years. there is a lot of deer there and also some very nice bucks. i saw one that came off thurmond chatham game land that scored 150-but that is a little rare. lots of does. i leased some land at sheets gap off the parkway this year. i hunt more in ashe co now during november.

    my hunting buddy and i have seen a lot of rubs but no real rut sign yest. it's usually arounf mz season they really fire up. apple orchards can't be beat! you should get in a really good hunt there. good luck!

    A comment titled: VIPER in response to a report titled: No Lunar charts Tonight!

    Guys-the viper is on the mark! Ladder stands get marked quickly by deer-esp bucks worth shooting. climbers give you a lot more flexibility and i have found ground blinds work well also and are quickly movable.

    You have got to hunt all day! Rain,shine,snow,wind, whatever. Deer don't wear watches and respond to the rythmn of God's natural world. Get in the groove.

    A comment titled: BLOCKS in response to a report titled: Need Advice

    You might get away with it viper! But there again he might just lose it and shoot. Some of these people loose in the woods don't have both oars in the water.

    We've had 2 trail cams stolen this year off of my uncle's.,and it's private land! I know who it is and notified sheriff Lane Carter in moore co. He just happens to live right down the road apiece. So hopefully they can keep an eye on this released felon.

    Good luck this weekend!

    A comment titled: LAND in response to a report titled: Need Advice

    Many yesra ago my buddies and I had this problem at Thurmond Chatham gameland w/locals who thought they owned the place. One of the guys at the campground was a retired FBI agent and we let him know about it. Needless to say he had it corrected quickly.

    Get his license#,report it to the sheriff and GW. Get a photograph of his truck,vehicle id#(in the lower part of w/shield,front of stg wheel) and license# even if it's dark. carefully document it and inforn law enforcement and provide pertinent info to them. They will respond.

    I know it's tempting to whip his A** but as a former deputy for a few years, it ain't worth risking a potentially life threatning show down. Hell-we all want you to live long and hunt!!
