Well, I took my nature walk today, and as is tradition, I didn't see what I was hunting for. Normally, I see turkey when i deer hunt, and deer when I turkey hunt. So today, i went for pig, and saw deer and turkey..... :(

That being said, it was one of the best days in the woods I have ever had. I saw a shitload of turkey, deer, and even a couple of bobcats. Probably out looking for turkeys.... ;) I was actually on my way to a spot, when I saw 3 deer. I was texting Jim about it, and almost ran over 50 or so turkeys gathered in the road.... :eek:

All animals were seen while I was driving around in between walking, and were within 50 yards of the road. Therefore, I say, if you want to see some critters, or take the kids out, now is the time. I have never seen so much wildlife at once. I am already planning on taking my son for a drive next Wednesday. The totals for today were......

120-150 Turkeys
25 Deer- Including a really nice 3x3 still with horns (Da :rolleyes: )
2 Bobcats

3 deer, 5 turkeys, and the 2 bobcats were the only ones I saw on public land. Everything else was on private, but fun as hell to see.

Couple of nice toms....

    they are all out where you can see them because no hunter pressure in the field, and I'll bet you didnt go where I told you to go to look for pigs did you, you stayed close to the road....

    No bobcat tags?


    Nah, I'm a meat hunter Nate (obviously not a good one ;) ). I don't like to shoot anything I won't eat. Don't care if others do it, if it's legal, I just don't like to. One of them would have been a good one too, as he was walking across a wide open, public field. I watched him for a few minutes. They are pretty animals, and make a beautiful fur, but I can't bring myself to do it.


    Gary,

    I went to 2 areas, one near where you mentioned, and one where someone else said. I walked quite a bit, and am feeling it too. I glassed alot, but didn't see much of anything moving.


    P.S. Anyone seen bucks holding their antlers this late? I have seen smaller ones, like that little spike, hold them, but a larger model 3x3 like that guy? I'd thought he'd have dropped by now... .:confused: He was really nice too, very high, not that wide.....

    Oh man.....I need to get back to work. Been 7 months and duck season drained the funds pretty good. Got yellowtail and turkeys on my mind but it's gonna be shitty if I don't get a job soon. Anybody need a construction super. Some doors, crown moulding or baseboard done for cash? I'm not a beggar but this fucking economy's ridiculous and if I don't find anything soon I'm not gonna be able to kill!!!

    Yo Gary, PM me the whereaboots of said hogs and I'll cook you up a fine meal of genuine "free range" carnitas. I am a half-breed beaner, so I can cook some carnitas.:food-smiley-014:

    Nope. Actually, the only turkeys I saw on public land was a group of 5 or 6 fat gobblers, right on a small piece of public land that Dave showed me... ;)
