    Try public land until you can find some private. There's some great deer killed every year just north of you on public land.

    New guy here from Leland in Brunswick Co, NC. I'm curious about hunting on NC Game Lands. The Brunswick Game Land is about 10 minutes drive from my place, but I've never been there. Any knowledge anyone can share would be appreciated very much!

    Anyone seeing any rutting activity lately? I've come across some good rubs and scrapes but haven't seen or heard any chasing here in Wayne

    Hunted nearly daily since the beginning of black powder season, finally got a good shot and put a doe on the ground Sunday morning. I went for three weeks and never saw a deer, so after reading your recent posts I'm glad it wasn't just me. I was getting worried.

    I'm up in Morganton. I saw plenty of deer earlier in the season, but just didn't have any shots. But for the past month, I haven't seen anything. I saw one about three weeks ago right at dark as I was walking in, too dark to shoot and too far away anyway. Other than that, nada.

    Idk about you guys but here in the east it is slow!!! I'm starting to think they were rutting back in October when I got my buck there was a cold week and I saw plenty of deer then. Could that be why it's so slow? I mean I'm still seeing fresh rubs in the woods

    I hope the cool weather coming in gets the deer moving. I still haven't seen any buck sign. Plenty of deer sign, but no buck sign.

    I saw lots of deer til about a month ago, then it's like someone flipped a switch. Only thing I've seen is a doe I dropped Sunday morning.
