    I've had that hanging over me the last 2 winter's at my public spot. Never froze solid enough.
    Might happen this year if we don't get snow soon.

    Slugger, how is the September bowhunting in NC in Sept? Been thinking of adding 3 to 4 weeks to my season for years. Even if I only get in a half dozen days of hunting in September, it would be worth it if the opportunities were decent. Fish in the morning, hunt in the evening sounds like fun.

    I'm not Slugger, but I slept at a holiday inn express before and I'm in NC.

    Yeah, hot, humid with lots of skeeters, chiggers, and ticks (Themacell and Permethrin).

    The early hunting opportunity is great, if you have animals patterned...or sit water. On public this goes sideways quick... Because it's public (others putting out cams, markers scouting for muzzle or rifle, a few bowhunters. If your on private you've got a better chance. The deer don't have permethrin, so they're covered with ticks.

    If you're eyeing a particular piece of public land do your homework (here https://www.ncpaws.org/ncwrcmaps/gamelands), in the regs and in the permit Doc and in forums like NC hunt and fish. There are quirks, like some gamelands may not be open on Sunday or only open 3 days a week, some permit/draw only, certain game, or heavily pressured. Mtn and a few coastal national forest tracts at least have opportunity to spread out (more important in rifle season).

    Slugger (and I think Opossum) are east of me, toward the coast, Matt used to be up in the Smokies (haven't seem him on in a year or two).

    I've decided, September is now my elk chasin time out west... Ymmv

    I didn’t post last night because we weren’t sure of the shot. It ended up being a quartering away gut shot the broke the offside front leg. But, my oldest got his first deer last night. We had to wait four hours on recovery. He experienced all the highs and lows on his first deer. It is in a cooler with ice and I will be butchering it later today. My dad was in town so there three generations of our family there to share the moment with him.
