Opening Weekend

Thread starter #1
That beautiful time of the year is almost here folks, not to terribly much longer before we will get the green light for opening day of bow season here in a few weeks time. That being said many of y'all planning on trying your luck out on public for the opener? I have been battling back from vehicle issues left and right it seems like most of the summer so I believe I am not going to test my luck and head south and instead try my hand out on some local public that I am very familiar with much closer to the house. Managed to do a limited amount of scouting for an area I have in mind to set up on for the weekend and see what happens. Oddly enough feel pretty comfortable with the decision and even though may not see anything opening weekend I feel like with the conditions I am working around I feel like I have a good grasp on the area I am considering hunting just have to get in there and wait em out if they decide to venture my way while I am in the stand.

Good luck ! I’ll probably be on some local public land also . Unless I have a decent buck showing up regular on one of my private spots .

Good deal same to you ant. I had some funky buck luck last year, so hoping for some of the same ju ju this year going into the season. Got some history with the area I have in mind to venture out and typically have logged alot of buck activity in years past running cams in the general area. Wish I had the ability to do the same this summer and had some cams soaking in the area but I know the layout of the terrain, the sign is there in plenty just a matter of waiting em out and seeing what moves about while in the stand. Be plenty satisfied to see some does early on regardless right now vs holding out for a surprise stud.

I use my hunting club as a base camp for the close wma's near Talbot county. I just love hunting different places. I will also hit the local wma's in NW Ga. good luck out there

Definitely a solid strategy, I am the same way any more I just about like bouncing around with my climber setting in new to me areas vs staying stationary over 1 primary spot. Granted if buck fever sets in sure I will try and stay put for a few hunts but other than that there is way to much accessible land open to the general public out there to not take advantage of it and do some exploring. Hoping to try out Cohutta a time or 2 before much longer.
