Is this a Red Wolf or Coyote? Picture taken in Granville County last week in the middle of the afternoon.
Picked up the latest edition of NCS Magazine and read an article about deer hunting in Chapel Hill. I did some research online and found this facebook group. Check it out:
If for some reason the link does not work, go to facebook and search Against Bow Hunting for Deer in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
I apologize for posting this late, but I was cleaning all the vomit off my keyboard.
This deer is unbelievable. It looks just like Bagboys, but has a tattoo on it. (This is how you photoshop people!) Give the man a break, and how about posting some Â“hunting reportsÂ” and trail camera pictures.
Ok, no one has a crystal ball, but anyone looking to take a stab at what to expect regarding deer movement this weekend? Last weekend it seems like they did not feed much; but the moon looks better this weekend, and I think the light rain will help in most areas. Any other opinions out there? I think we should see more deer this weekend, but I will let you know on Monday.
Did anyone else have a slow opening day? Moon off? Did not see the first deer until 0952 am (only one in the am), and saw one at 1900. The only two I saw all day. Camera pictures showed they were there, just not yesterday. Next weekend the moon looks better, but I was wondering if it was me, or if others noticed the same.
I would like to quickly comment on this post, and all the other dog/still hunting related posts on this board.
Letter to everyone who has posted on this forum or any others related to dog hunters vs. still hunters:
Ladies and Gentlemen,
We are reading these posts because we all share something in common; we love the outdoors and enjoy the spirit of the hunt. This board was set up so readers of the great NC Sportsman Magazine and website could share Â“Hunting ReportsÂ”, and enjoy others successes and funny, inauspicious hunting experiences. I feel as though a few folks have misinterpreted this board, and this has become a rant and rave discussion board for dog hunters vs. still hunters or vise versa.
I am myself both a dog hunter and still hunter. I have harvested a doe and a button buck [my first ever with a muzzleloader (open sights)] this year, both while still hunting. I have an invitation to hunt a dog club tomorrow. I enjoy the solitude of being alone in the woods during still hunting, and the camaraderie of the dog hunts. To each his own, and we can only hope and pray that our other brethren in the woods doing what we both share in common, is using the same courtesy as we would show to him/her.
There is no right or wrong way to hunt, unless of course, it is illegal or unethical; and in closing I wish to promote a few suggestions in using this board:
1.) Use this board to share hunting stories and tales. It was not set up to disparage, insult, or demeanor any persons way of life or hunting experience.
2.) If there is any illegal action please take it to the NCWRC.
3.) If you have placed a comment on this post or any other post unrelated to a Â“hunting reportÂ” I would recommend taking it off and let it be. Every comment and remark is fuel for the anti-hunting population to give reason not to let us, (still and dog hunters), enjoy our sport.
4.) To the person that posted the picture of the shot dog: Please, take it down. I understand your situation, and know you are upset; again every picture, comment, and remark is fuel for the anti-hunting population to give reason not to let us, (still and dog hunters), enjoy our sport.
5.) Everyone, please attend a NCWRC round table, forum, community event. These are the meetings and discussions where things get accomplished, and they listen to your voice. Bring a friend as well, and let your concerns be heard.
6.) Still hunters: It is my challenge to you to bring a dog hunter on a still hunt with you. Let him/her enjoy the solace of being out in the woods and hearing the wind and small animals.
7.) Dog hunters: It is my challenge to you to bring a still hunter on a dog hunt. Let him/her enjoy the camaraderie of friends and the thrill of the races.
8.) Take a kid hunting.
9.) Everyone remember we are here to do GodÂ’s work; and if it were not for him, we would not be able to enjoy the amazing moments we spend in the woods.
I apologize for the long post, but my hope would be that by the end of next week all non related posts to Â“hunting reportsÂ” would be removed from this board. Good luck to everyone and please remember to promote fellowship and brotherhood in the woods, and always make hunters look like the conservationists we are. Leave the woods better than you found them.
