  • Hey Everyone!!

    Summer is starting to swing into gear and I am already thinking about gearing up for the upcoming season!! I dip and smoke and always wonder, especially dipping in the woods, has had any impact in years past...Anyway I have been seeing these electronic cigarettes online/tv and wondered if they are worth trying?
    Just wondering... Thanks Guys!

    Hello Everybody. A trip I had planned has been cancelled and me and my hunting buddy have decided to give the public properties a chance. Problem is I have never hunted these lands..I know some are permit hunting etc...Basically I am looking for a gameland that is not permit/lottery pick, has an area to camp (I see there is designated hunting camps do you have to reserve these?), and is within a couple hours of Mooresville. Any input on a good gameland with camping available? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Good Morning Everybody. A hunting buddy and I requested off from work DEC 5-7 planning to hunt a large parcel of private land in the mountains. As of last night the trip is looking as though it wont happen...Does anyone have any suggestions as to any options we may have in order to salvage this time. We are looking for private/public land opportunities (Preferably in the MTNS) that would be worth hunting for the 5 days we had planned on originally (12/3-12-7). This was our once a year big 'roughing' it trip, any help would be greatly appreciated. We both live in Mooresville.

    Hey guys, looking for a little background information if ya'll have any. Myself and a couple buddies are heading up to the Blowing Rock area to hunt on a farm up there this weekend. I have never hunted the area. Didnt know what to expect. How is the rut up there now? Didnt know the quality of deer up there either...
    Any and all info is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Is this area good? Any specific locations which are good for camping?

    Thank you for the reccommendation. Unfortunately it would have to be in the Piedmont or MTNS. I have looked throughout the NCWILDLIFE website but I am running into a bit of confusion. I just want to make sure we have all our ducks in a row. For instance there are certain mountain or piedmont gamelands that state :Gun Deer Season: Nov. 21 – Dec. 10 in all portions of the
    game land.
    ● Gun Either-Sex Deer Season: Dec. 10 (introductory season)
    in all portions of the game land

    So can the gameland be hunted throughout the entire Nov-Dec 10 period or just the Dec 10? If there is anyone with experience with the gamelands in the piedmont or mountains within a couple hours of charlotte I would really appreciate to talk one on one via email or other means.

    Too wet, looks like theyre going to get pulled out today. Had the priviledge of walking up on the with shovels, trying to dig out the gem, and informing them that shovels just werent going to do it.

    6:15 Saturday morning walking down into a creek bottom I spy tail lights. A few more steps I see a late 80's Chevy Celebrity buried up to the chassey not 50 yards from the stand I intended to hunt. Ha, so needless to say it is good to hear yall's success stories after a couple of drunk teens trespassed and went muddin Friday night on the property I had permission to. Looking forward to this weekend to make up for the less than desireable start last.

    so just taking 20 min off of the displayed time and it should be relatively accurate for our region?
    Also, the minor, which runs for an hour span 6 hours after the major...this is 6 hours following the end of the major or is this 6 hours from the start.... Im pretty new to using lunar phases

    thanks for everything
