All under the same Burr oak. A lot of the Burr oaks are dropping now up here in dairyland. A heavy crop. Should be fat deer.
Rainy and foggy opening weekend in the NC mountains. I didn’t see anything (until the drive home!) but it was great to finally be out and enjoying some cooler weather.
I hit the hills on Friday. Had a nice day but all the elk sign was old by about a week. This unit edges on the continental divide. The unit on the other side is hard to draw. I suspect the weekend scouters got in there and kicked them over the top.
Pretty country though.
Yes Chuck those are good signs! White oaks dropping here also and the deer are feeding on them. Can’t wait. It opens here on the 15th and my Northern Mist starts twitching in my hand every time I pick it up!
It has been a persistently hot year here in NC too. Got into the 90's in May and stayed there. I'm heading to CO Friday for a week of grouse hunting in the highlands with an old friend. Looking forward to a break from the weather and some Dickle
#12. This will be our first hunt since the pandemic so we will have some catching up to do.
Then when I get back, them little bucks that have been loitering in the garden better look sharp or they might find a little wood sticking out of their ribs 😜
Yea! looking good there
too hot n Humid here to go into the woods-chiggers are out in force here and the woods look like a jungle here still
