didn't make it on opening weekend, but I did call up a jake yesterday, he got in range then i spotted a larger bird behind him, got greedy and it ended up being a hen, so i went home empty handed. It was nice to finally have one gobble and come straight to me though.
We should plan a turkey week or extended weekend hunt one year. may be easier for me to make one of those then the bear season bp week or gun opener. seems to fall on my sons fall break every year -- still got a few more years before he'll be big enough to hike the mountian though.
Over the past few years up till this year I have seen 8-12 bear a year between hunting, traveling, and trail cams. However this year i have only seen 1 bear. This bear crossed the road in front of us going over burnt mtn while traveling to my sons football game in pickens county back in the fall. Has everyone else's experiences been the same? Just wondering?
