  • I started hunting 2 seasons ago so I am new at the game. Last season I wanted to try turkey hunting, we had a friend that had property offered it to us to 'give it a try' well it was a bust. I am trying to find some good land to hunt. I have been around the Harris land but not to sure about public hunting. Can anyone offer some advice please to a newbie. I may have not been lucky enough to harvest anything yet but am addicted to the sport and I know in time I will be able to say I go a gobbler down.. HELP :-)

    I don't usually like hunting public land, but this morning after I came from my lease I drove over to the Harris Nuclear plant to the public land. I was shocked to see NO ONE there it is opening day for bow season. Whats up. All the gates were locked too, does anyone know why ?

    My husband & I usualy hunt in Chatam Co NC for deer season. This will be our 1st year attempting to turkey hunt. Can we get some ideas where in Wake county we can find a place to hunt this up coming season. Thanks in advance for any info.
    Happy Hunting Everyone...

    A comment titled: need ideas where to turkey hunt in response to a report titled: Who's Ready For Turkey Season!!

    You asked if we we're ready for turkey season ... Well yes as a matter a fact I am :-) Last year was my 1st ever attempt ( I say attempt ) because I harvested not one single turkey. A friend had some property and said we could take a chance so we did. I have only been hunting in NC 2 yrs. So I haven't had a lot of networking with other fellow hunters, so I am asking for advice..Are there any good public land areas that I might actually be able to harvest my 1st turkey this season??

    WTG on the 117. That is impressive don't feel to bad about not making it to 200. We didn't have that good of luck on our Squirrel quest. So I am impressed... Counting down the days till Turkey season starts.

    Thanks for the info.. I only asked about Wake Co because we live in Wake Co. We lease property in Chatham Co. We haven't seen activity in our area so we thought maybe try to find somewhere else to hunt. If it was local that would be a plus,but considering your statistics looks like we may need to look elsewhere. So any advice where to find property for lease (season or weekend) would be much appreciated. Thank you again for the comment. as soon as I get my 1st turkey I will post pix :-)
