2018 Oglethorpe County Hunt Reports

Got 2 out of 10 that I saw.

Side note......rangers been very visible past two days in OC.
I've seen more rangers this year than I have in 17 years of hunting OC. I think with all these hogs running around they are getting a lot of calls about people hunting from the road.

Yes, seen more of DNR as well this year...

Actually meet him on my clouds creek property back in the fall. Opened the gate, drove up the road and he was sitting at one of our turnouts. Great guy, gave me his business card. The timber companies provide them with all their lock codes, so they have access to any of the paper companies properties.

And nice shooting Todd, hogs are here to stay in OC. Hadn't seen them in CC yet, but our SC club has them on occasion, especially in the summer months. Seems like as soon as we start deer hunting, the feel the pressure and move on.

Nice porker Todd! For what it's worth, took a sow to Firetower back in November and had them make sage breakfast sausage. Good stuff! Won't be leaving them all for the buzzards going forward.

Just FYI on some info I thought some of yall might find useful. I was able to take a mature doe 1/6/18 in the south end of the county near Philomath and was able to pull the fetus. Ended up being bred about 51-52 days prior so that would have put her being bred around Nov 15 or 16.

Rabbit hunt

We rabbit hunted yesterday at my CC club. The 4 year old clear cut has a ton of rabbits but getting a shot off on one is almost impossible. I had a rabbit run by me 3 times at less than 5 yards and have yet to see it :banginghe. We ended up with 2 but had a great morning of listening to beagles run and fellowship with some good people. Arrow3 joined us after his duck hunt, always good to meet up with fellow members of this forum. While we were hunting, several of my fellow club members refreshed all our mineral licks across the club, so we are set for the year with our mineral licks.

Thank you for the invite for the hunt. Enjoyed getting all scratched up with you guys :bounce::bounce:

I have some audio of some of the races that I will upload here. You're right about that being some thick stuff. The dogs came by me numerous times and I never saw a rabbit.

I sure do envy you fellas who seem to get out there every weekend. I'm hoping the pendulum swings back for me one day in the future to where I can spend more time in the woods. Thanks for all the reports/pics/videos....it's the next best thing.
