^^^^^thanks. I've been wondering if there was a place to donate in our area. I will be going to south ga when it cools off some to help some family out. The deer are so bad on their farm they have a permit to kill all year.

Two young bucks Saturday night. When I was getting out of the stand Sunday morning at 11:30 I had two young bucks and a mature six pointer come in. All I could do was stand there and watch'em. Didn't see a single doe. They're eating acorns at our place.

Had 2 fawns bed down 20 feet in front of me this evening. When their mom finally popped out I had too many eyes around to draw back. A great camera opportunity and I left the camera in the car.

Found a fresh scrape opening weekend. I thought it was way too early for N.Ga. Put a camera in front of it and got several pics. The young 8 is still in velvet. Anybody else ever seen active scrapes in Walker this early?

Default Glad I didn't run accross that snake

I've been to several hunts on Cohutta and Pigion mtn. I am new to hunting the NF land. Looking for someone in catoosa or walker county that knows of some good spots around here that wouldn't mind sharing and maybe a tagalong. I found a lease in Armuchie, but I've got 2 knee surgeries coming up in the next several months, with the first in Mid November. I've got a little time for muzzle loader and rifle, but can't justify the lease this year. May just be limited to the WMA's this year.

Just remember if you hunt on NF land that it is buck only during gun season except for 1 day each month.

Default Ordinance No. 12-03

On Sept 10, 2012, the LaFayette City Council approved a bow hunting ordinance that prohibits hunting or bow target practice on less than a 5 acre contiguous parcel. Please call (706) 639-1501 and let them know that we do not want this ordinance.

Anxious to be in the woods in the morning! Got a lot of sign and acorns all around this stand. Haven't hunted it yet this season. Hope it pays off!

Regarding the hard hat, it's absolutely unbelievable how many acorns are on the ground. It's like just after a hail storm except with acorns.

If you ever get that spike check his teeth. I got a doe a couple years ago whose teeth were worn flush and below the gums and a buck last year that were about 3/16" from it.

All I'm seeing in the Chattahochee around Armuchie is Mountain Oak acorns. I scouted an area today, had a pretty decent size buck run within 100 yards of me. To much brush to get an anlter count

Default XCrazy morning

Just after 1st light had a Turkey spook across the creek and fly across 10' in front of me and land in a tree 20 yards to my left. After listening to him cluck for 20 minutes I stood up and he spooked again going up the ridge....Then I had a Bobcat come by and just fast enough to not get a shot..... 10 minutes later another (smaller) Bobcat came by just behind my stand and too fast to shoot.... On the way out there were loads of turkey feathers everywhere....Guess it's time for some Bobcat hunting.....

Still acorns EVERYWHERE...................

Its hard to say in that pic. I want to say 3.5. It would be hard for me to let him walk in Walker County. He's pushing it close to the Pope and Young min too.
