Im thinking about buying a cross bow for next season. I shoot a Mathews compound bow now...does any body know of the good top end brand /models of cross bows...what to look for etc.
I just heard the results of the new changes to the 2009-2010 deer season. To sum it up the central and western piedmont seasons remain the same with the exception of the last week of archery being added as a muzzle loader season...so there will be two weeks total. Crossbows will be legal as well during archery season. I did not hear of any changes to the spring wild turkey seasons. Check out the Raliegh news paper website
So today I found out that a neighboring land owner who has a 50 acre tract gave permission to a large hunt club to dog hunt his land. We have a 100 acre tract adjacent to his property which has lots of bedding cover on it. There is not a tract of land larger than ours in the area, and in addition the property the club has permission to run just got clear cut this past month. How is this legal? There is no way that they can hunt and control there dogs on the small tract they have the ok to hunt, and its clear cut!!!! Somethings got to give with this mess. I know they are going to run our land cause its the only cover around...does anyone have any advise on how to control this or motion a change in the law to get rid of this ridiculous excuse to hunt someone elses land...
I shot this one last November, never took it to the deer classic maybe should have. Its official score was 162 5/8 typical B&amp;amp;amp;C. I just thought I would show you that if you are patient and let the small ones go that the giant are out there...not bad for an eight pointer. And yes it was 100% fair chace..killed at 9:30 in the morning.
The NC Wildlife Comission is considering a proposal that would eliminate archery and muzzleloading seasons on private lands. On private lands, owners, and or leases will be allowed to use and weapon including rifles the entire season. The purpose they say is to produce a huge increase in deer harvest immediatley. Sound like insurace companies are lobbying because there claims are up and they arent making enough money. I encourage all of you to contact your wildlife commissioners and let them know this is a horrible idea. There is a meeting August 26 &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;27 to discuss this issue. Lets stop this bill in its tracks!!
