We don't start seeing kittens till late july or early august in north GA. Atleast that's how its always been for me. You will have folks start claiming to see em on hunts any time now. What they see is spider eyes!

I agree, it's too early. But, they sure are looking since shoot-out season is over...I guess they have a calendar.

Its been hard to see any coons. Surely we cant making that many slick trees all of a sudden. Just cant get em to look. ANd one of the last was found but it wasnt looking.

You can train your hounds by running coon year round. Just cant kill any coon..Your right about the season.

You can kill coons during training season it just has to be on private land. Thats how i train my pups in the summer i just got lucky and found a man who is having problems with them and he give me permission to hunt if i wood get rid of them there killing his chickens

Yeah its true, its legal to kill a nest full of Bald Eagles too if your hunting on "private" land

I've been hunting a couple of nights a week but good Lord it's dry. I can deal with the heat but it's tough striking a track right now. The last time I hunted we made 4 trees and all 4 were layups, we didn't get a single bark on the ground. We need some rain in the worse kind of way.
