Well From Oct 14 2013-feb off and on I Ended Up Bagging 164 Squirrels. The last 3 Years Have been Really good squirrel hunting on Butner-falls and Jordan GL.
Howdy, I Hope Everyone Is On Track To Having A Great Summer!! If Ya'll Are Like Me, Then You Are Busy Busy Busy, Replacing Hunting Supply's Scouting And maybe Shopping for a new Long Gun, A New Shotgun Or Both (Depending on Cash Flow lol) Whatever Ya'll Are Doing Have A Fun And Safe Summer!! Remember We are Just 88 Days Away From Geese And Doves Hee Haw!! God Bless And Take Care!!
Hope everyone had a fun and safe Opening Day! Went out on gameland This am woke up late but got set-up before sunrise (no one else was there) Around 7:00am i heard a tom gobble down in a creek bottom (i was on top of a ridge) Called to him a couple of time and he answered back, but i never did see him, i wasnt set-up in the right Place. So around 945am ran home for a few minutes then i was back in the woods at 12:45pm. no action until around 230pm an owl hooted and shocked a call from two gobblers down in the same creek bottom, but i never saw them neahter. called it a day around 4:30pm ran out of water and could'nt keep my eyes openend lol. i will try again soon. i call that a good day, the only bad Part of the day was the Chinese Place was closed for some reason so lunch was mcdonalds, other then That i call today succesful, i was happy to just hear some toms!!
Just Wondering What do Ya'll Like Better, A Full Facemask Or War Paint For Turkey Hunting? I Wear A Facemask, I Got a new one coming from Bass pro The new UA Turkey Relvelution Mask, But i think i may try War Paint when the Heat turns On.
Well, Fellow Sportsman, Women, And Kids. In Just A Couple Of Days Season Is Over. Hope Everyone had Fun Chasing, Small game Upland Birds, And Light Geese. As Of This Date Ive Only Bagged 117 Squirrels. Thats A Good Amount But Far Short Of My 200 Goal And Far Short From Last Year's Till, THEY Are Getting Hard To Find Locally, But There Are Still a few Here And There. Would like to hear From Others. Next is turkey!! Good Luck!!
I Was Wondering If Anybody Know's If Squirrels Can be Hunted On The Cure Area Of Caswell Gameland. Thanks.
Well, Just Returned Last Night From My Coastal Trip. Had Alot Of Fun!! I Wish i would have drawn A Waterfowl Permit for the gameland I Was On, Because the Ducks Where Oplently Where I Was Smallgame hunting. Lot's of Woodies Gadwall And Mallards, Hunters Did Good Sat and Also Tuesday. I Hope to draw Next Season. But The Swamp Has Squirrels, and lot's of Squirrels lol. I Ended Up Bagging 34 In 6 Days. Not to Shabby!!

Ive Been Keeping A Squirrel Location Journal While ive Been Deer Hunting. Use it to Mark Squirrel Locations #'s And To Get a Good Idea Of About How Many i need to Try to hunt and remove from any one area. Just wondering does anyone else do the same, or im i the only one squirrely enough to do it lol, no pum intented
Well, Today Is My Birthday So I Had The Day Off. Went hunting At My Favorite Spot On Butner-falls. Got In The Tree at 4:45am got set up and relaxed ready for an all Day Hunting. I Could here deer moving around 5:15am thats why im in the tree that Early so they dont Bust Me Walking to my Tree. Just over amiles walk. So Sitting Watching squirrels around 7:45am saw 3 little bucks they came and worked my Mock Scrapes, but they where't Shooters Around 10 i had to use the urinal so i stood up using the bathroom when i looked off to my Left i got a big shock, it was 2 shooter bucks around 100 yards walking my way. lol i got so exicted that i spilled pee all over my treestand seat(none hit the ground Thank God) So I Slowly Grabbed my Ruger M77 mark2 Target in .270cal shooting Federal Fusion ammo 150grain Boattails. Sat Back down Slowly Raised my gun and by this time they where 50 Yards away down wind and not nervus, ( I Was lol) Put the crosshairs on the buck squeezed The Trigger The buck went down. he didnt move at all. What a great Hunt!1 He's not a monster But a nice gameland Buck.
Just Looked At The Rut Map. The Rut Phase for Western N.C IS At Pre Rut, Central N.C IS At Seeking And Chasing, and In The North Eastern N.C IS At Peak Rut. Good Luck To All!! Im Only on PC Now Because Ive got no Gas $$ To Hunt Today, cant go til tomorrow.
I Just Wanted to Say Congrats To All The Men Women And Children That Have Taken Some Nice Looking Bucks. Theres way To Many for me to Say Something On All The Post I Do Try And Read And Look At The Pics. N.C Has Some Big Bucks!!
Howdy, Well Another Great Day On Butner-falls!! Sitting In Treestand Listing To All The Shotgun Blast Made Me Wish I Went Duck Hunting, But That Faded Fast When 4 Does Walked Right To Me, I Took The Biggest one Out Of The 4. There Was One Other Local Hunter Behind Me Alitte Ways, I Heard Him Shoot, But Never Did Get A Chance To Talk To Him, Im Glad My Shot Didnt Mess His Hunt Up. He Was Nice A Quite When He Came In. Very Respectful, thats The Kind Of People That Are Mostly on Gameland! lAST Year I posted I Thought The Deer Population On Butner-falls Was Dropping, I Take That Back, Guess I Just Wasnt in The Right Place lol. Sorry no Bucks Yet, But I Love Taking Does Just As Well!! 2 more deer and im Tagged Out.
Just Wanted To Report That Saturday 11-3-12 I Was Hunting On Butner-falls And Seen Some Great Deer Chasing Action. Saw 5 Bucks Sat am Chasing one doe. All The Bucks Where Not Shooters So I Watched Them For Awhile and then Decided the Bucks Where To Small So I Took A Nice 80 Lb Doe. Hope to go again More Next Week Woods Are Heating up In Wake And Durham Counties. Good Luck To All. Waiting on a Monster Buck!!
Howdy, Yesterday Opening of Blackpowder Central n.c I Was Sitting 30ft High in My Climber On Gameland. Wind Was Blowing around 20 mph Or So. Around 9:40am I Just Happend To Turn My Head to my Left And See 2 Does Walking By Me At 40 Yards. (I Never Heard Them Coming) I Rasied My Muzzleloader And Had The CrossHairs On The Back of One Does By This Time i ranged Them At 60 Yards. Long Story Short, I Didnt Shoot, I Knew I Could Make A Clean Shot, But IT Was A Spine Shot, i I Didnt Feel Right About Shooting A Deer In The Spine. Butner-fall in (Durham, Wake, And Granville Counties) Recevie Some Major Hunting Pressure. I Heard 3 Shots Fired In And Around Me, But When I Let The 2 Does Walk I Didnt Hear A Single Shot, so I Feel Good That i may see the does Again. Did I Make The Right Call not to Shoot? Love To Hear What ya'll Think!! Thanks Goodluck And Stay Safe.
Well Took Mon though Today Off From Deer Hunting (Which is going good no bucks yet, got 2 Nice Does) Wanted to Squirrel Hunt. Ive Been hunting at Whitehall Plantation Gameland since Monday, it's has been some real good spot and stalk Hunting. Just got home a few minutes ago. Mon was good in the am, but in the afternoon i ran into 2 bear cubs, so i had to devert and find another spot. Great looking cubs, but Momma Bear was upset, i back off slowly and lucky she only mock charged me lol i got lucky and so did the squirrels lol. anyway tues was great got 7 and today got six, so i had fun. now back to deer hunting.
I Bought The Tinks Inflatable Doe Decoy to Use This Bow Season. It Looks Pretty Real From A Distance. Has Anyone Used This Decoy? Would Love To Hear From You. It Blows Up Alot Easier Then I Thought It Would. I'll Give A Report on How It Does on Opening Day.
Howdy To All!! Well It's That Time Of Year Again. One short Week, And Its Gametime. Just Wanted To Say Goodluck To All Sportsman Ladies And Kids. Goodluck Dove And Goose Hunting. Have Fun And Be Safe!! Just A Reminder (Was A Shock To Me) Dove Mostly Has Been A High Noon Opener, But This Season (1,sept) Doves Opens One Half Hr Before Sunrise til Sunset though out the Whole Dove Season. Im Sure Most Of Ya'll Already Know, But i didnt want anyone to come to the field at noon and miss the Action From The am. Good Luck!!!!
Opening Day on Archery Only Trac Was Great!! First Light Heard One Gobble, and 10mins Later 2 Crows Fly over and shocked 2 more Gobblers. 3 Altogether!! And They Where Close 50 Yards Or Less. Although i could'nt see the birds, i could heard Them. Finnaly after half hr or so i caught a glimse of All Three Birds. They where up above me, i was Down In A Draw along a creek. Long Story Short, Never did Get them in for a shot, i think i over called.But That Was AWSOME! Im Still Learning. ive killed a few birds But I Need to get better at Calling. Today I Heard only one Bird, but never saw Him. They Are Holeing up on the safety Zone ( Smart Birds) So There For Im Hugging the Safey Zone as Well. I Love hunting Turkey With Shotgun, but hunting on gameland in the archery only with crossbow, is the best turkey hunting ive ever seen. lots of birds and no hunters= Hopefully 2 Bagged Birds. I Will stay on the birds everyday until i can seal the deal.
