    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 “hunting reports” 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 “Hunting Reports”, 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 “hunting report” 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 “hunting reports” 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.

    Best regards,
    Eastmanscreek

    A comment titled: Sense or Scents in response to a report titled: Doe estrus yet?

    He is my opinion on it since I have always had a dilemma on what to do or buy. Since it is my opinion it is correct, because opinions cannot be right or wrong.

    If you have a trail camera in a spot where you know deer frequent, and even better, have a small “curious” buck on it, try a few different scents in front of the camera and see what happens.

    I just purchased some of the new Tinks Magnetics to see how it would do. I can say for sure I still have bucks on my camera, but they seem to be more interested in the corn in front of the camera, then the limb I put the scent on. It did not scare them, but also did not seem to drag them in from miles away. As I purchased this tiny bottle of $10 synthetic deer attractant, I thought of three things:

    1.) If there was a deer lure, attractant, urine, scent, or any other device that really worked and worthy of bringing in deer for miles, would they sell it for $10 at Wal-Mart?

    2.) If you watch the hunting channels on TV they always work, but then again they always shoot bucks bigger than I have ever seen, and use them in places where they know they will work without a doubt.

    3.) The best deer attractant money can buy comes in 50 – 100 pound bags, and you can buy it from your local farmer, and I guarantee it works better than pee.

    Moral to the points, if you consistently see deer like they shoot on TV, then you donÂ’t need deer attractant. If you believe that tiny bottles of pee will bring you deer; then you might also believe in unicorns, the tooth fairy, Bigfoot, snipes, miracle weight loss, and only $99 down will put you in a 2012 4X4 Silverado Crew Cab with a Duramax Diesel, and Allison transmission with payments of only $159 a month. And finally, corn works in any season. Good luck and God bless!

    A comment titled: They all have X's in response to a report titled: Tattooed Buck

    Andy, they all have X's; you just have to stop counting the points to look for it. Good luck this year bud! Fact: You miss %100 of the deer you dont hit.

    A comment titled: No Problem in response to a report titled: Tattooed Buck

    I was going to post a picture of a Unicorn I got on my Bushnell, but with all the negative comments you got on your post I thought no one would believe me. You got a fine example of what NC can produce if you 'let em' walk'! Good luck, and I sent you an email as well. As for those who said it was fake, you now may want to eat your words along with the backstraps off your 4 pointer. Remember: A spike's genetics will never allow him to be more than a spike - after you load him in your truck.

    A comment titled: HAHAHAHA in response to a report titled: Surprise Surprise

    I am still laughing; 'must have been photoshoped', 'look at the times, no deer would be there for that long', and all the other comments. Just because you have not seen a deer that big yourself, does not mean it does not exist in NC. Thanks for the additional photos Bagboy and you have my vote in the big buck contest. Must have some of that Montana Mule Deer DNA. HAHAHAHHA still laughing about all the photoshop and other non-believer comments. Good QDMA practices breed big deer. Kudos Bagboy!

    A comment titled: Hunting Reports? in response to a report titled: North Carolina

    I thought this fourm was 'hunting reports'. Maybe after tomorrow we can all discuss actual hunting reports, instead of trying to figure out if some picture is real. Sorry if I offended you, but stick to the subject.

    A comment titled: Bushnell trophy Cam in response to a report titled: Need advice on cameras

    JTR: I purchased a Bushnell Trophy Cam last year because I had the same problem as you with my Moultrie. I used my new Bushnell trophy Cam all of last season, with the same batteries, taking approx 20 pictures a day/night. (I had it set on every 5 mins). I turned it off after the season and turned it back on this past week and it still had juice left. Not only that, but the pictures are very clear. I would not go with anything else. Look around and you should be able to find one for about $150. Good luck and get a Bushnell trophy Cam; you will not be dissapointed!

    A comment titled: Bushnell Trophy Cam 5.0 in response to a report titled: camera thoughts

    Just bought a Bushnell 5.0 from Cabelas($199 with free shipping). Best camera I have ever purchased, and it took about 3 minutes to set up. 4.4 out of 5 stars on the website and not a bad review I have seen. About the size of a regualr digital camera with a super fast trigger speed. 8AA batteries last an ENTIRE YEAR! You will save money alone in batteries. A 2G card holds 1963 pictures! A few of my buddies have the Wildview and say it works well for the price (about $75 from Dicks). Also had a Moultrie that never worked that well.Good luck!

    A comment titled: Nothing Either in response to a report titled: Viperx?

    I am happy to see I have some friends in the same boat. Not to say I am happy that we all had minimal days, but I am glad I was not the only one to have limited success. I started a post below but this one seems more appropriate to display the bad luck. What was it, the moon? How can you have your card max out on your camera then only see two deer off in the distance on opening day? The deer must have read the digest this year and marked opening day on their calendars. Does anyone know what the moon is doing next weekend? It looked pretty good from what I had seen.
