Went up the the lease sat. to check out the camp everything was ok other then some down limbs around the camp. We saw some good sign a few deer and some turkeys with their young. Some afternoon thunder storms rolled in . so we sat on the front porch of the camp house , and watched them roll by didnt get alot of rain out of them, seems like most of the rain was south of us towards blakeley. Went to the Ga. Giant and ate a good dinner. Any body else on here hunting Clay county ? if so hows things looking on your hunting lease ?
 
I hunt Clay right on the border of Early . We had no water for awhile but it seems to be pretty consistent over the last few weeks . I go up about everyother weekend . The bucks seem to be developing well .

Floridaboy we just got our cameras out this pass weekend Im running a little behind this year. do you hunt close to hwy 39 ? I have seen some real nice bucks heading up to the club, we hunt east of fort gaines .
 
I went up there memorial day weekend and things looked good, saw a lot of deer track. Right now it appears we are going down to the wire on keeping the lease, I'm waiting to hear from the president if we can get the money in by Thursday. I hate to lose a lease cause we are short one member but times are hard for a lot of people these days.

12 pointer, I have lived, and hunted here most of my life. Deer seem to be doing well from what I have seen, and seen some good bucks running about. I live east of Ft. Gaines out at Suttons Corner. My great grandmother was a Sutton that they area was named for so my family has been around these parts for awhile.

Well I got the notice a couple of days ago that plumcreek will start some cutting on our club , they have been telling us the last 3 yrs. that they where going to cut , they flagged the gate so they are on the way. I like hunting on a clearcut I have killed and seen some nice deer on clearcuts. I know that timber is their business , but it will still be alittle sad . I hope they get on in there and get out my rifle season.

Good luck with that 12pointer they seem to like taking their time about it. Two years back they thinned us 3 weeks before gun season up to a few days before opening day. Then they came back around December 1st and clear cut the rest. That in and out of the property stuff pretty much ruined my season. I hope you have better luck with them.
 
Rode the club this weekend and saw a lot of deer track. They are still heavily traveling the deer trail I scouted back in late January. I put a stand about 65 yards up a row in the pines from where this trail crosses, I can't wait till gun season.

Nice deer , I didnt get to go opening weekend my mother had total knee replacement friday so I was at hospital with her, my son went sat. morning saw 3 does and 2 yearlings but no horn , he said he thought one of the does was going to try to climb the tree he was in she was so close under the tree he was in looking at her though the arm braces of his climber,hopefully I will get to go this coming up weekend . My son checked one camera while he was there and 90 % of the pics where in the afternoon ,its funny how the moon will change the feeding pattern. the week before most pics. where in the morning.

Well if everything goes ok I will be going in the morning for the first time , I have been under the weather a little found out that the top part of my heart was not flowing blood like it is suppose to , went in the hospital dr. ran tube down my throat to check for blood clots and also shocked my heart 4 times to see if they could get it back pumping right it didnt work so they put me on blood thinner for a couple weeks and then they are going to shock me again, I hope it works . Maybe me or my son will get to sling a arrow in the morning , I also need to check the cameras and fill the feeders tomorrow and clean up around the camper alittle bit.
