Gotcha...

I'll pull a head count together this week.

Might be good to have a pre-hunt meeting.

I'll throw something out in my e-mail.

Hope everybody has started practicing with you stck and string...

Tuned up my Outback and I am steadily whack-n-em from 30 &40 yards...

Went out with my brother in law yesterday and set a tripod up.

Deer sign everywhere in Hancock County on our lease.

Marlin 444, but you can call me Cooter!

Another option we have is that the Swallow creek wma will be open with modern firearms during the time of our planned hunt so you might want to bring your deer rifles as well as your muzzle loaders. Brian and I will be out scouting in the coming weeks as soon as the weather cools some. We'll keep you posted but remember guys there is nothing guaranteed except that we will be hunting some very mountainous land so please be prepared both mentally and physically.

Also we will have to hunt on foot because you can't ride fourwheelers on this govt land.

Hey you all, new to the forum and I am not trying to cut in or anything but I have been trying to find someone who knows something about north georgia bears. Man did i hit the right forum. I plan on scouting out chatt wma this weekend and next. Probally camp right there.

If anyone knows the spot or could send me in the right direction I need all the help i can get, I am a bow hunter. I hunt in south georgia swamps.

Thanks for help and tips and tricks of the mountains, i would hate to get lost in it. but they say you have to get in the back country. How do you walk that far in the dark????

Hey all:

So far the following will hunt with us. Black Powder October 17, 18 and 19. At this point we will Base Camp at the Chattahoochee National Forest, Dana and Brian are to do some scouting (Thanks Guys!) so we can nail this down.

The following are the folks who will be with us at this point -

* Dana Young
* Brian Chambers
* sr.corndog
* Vermont
* Marlin 444

NOTE: If you have an interest, send "Marlin_444" a PM with e-mail address and Cell Phone Number.

Sorry I have not updated everyone lately, works been getting in the way...

Interested Bear Hunters can shoot me a PM and I'll do my best to keep up.

Let 's plan a meeting a couple weeks ahead of the hunt. Any suggestions like the Smith House or a spot in Helen?

Hope you are all getting your Bow Practice in, looking forward to the Big One in my Buddies Apple Orchard in Velvet.

Momma says I can hang the next one (a 12 point) between the 9 and the 11... But I want a nice Bear Rug to go there!!!

Marlin 444 - You can call me Cooter!

Probably not a good idea to be walking through the woods during Deer / Bear Season on public land, But I am open to suggestions...

Guys,
The plan right now is for brian and myself to get ya'll into bear country, I don't know if we will be able to set you in specific spots or not due to the # of folks going we may just have to either get you in the general area or walk in dropping people off as we go along. I pretty much stalk and shoot bears, sometimes I take them from stands but usually I slip along and shoot them.
