  • Whats up all.. Long story short lol. Me and my dad have never turkey hunted until yesterday. I ordered some decoys and been trying to learn how to call off of youtube and reading. I actually never expected to see anything the first day moreless get one. So after it stopped raining we got set up about 830. I told dad if one came out he gets the first shot and if there was two then I would take a shoot after him. Im thinking were never going to see anything cause I dont no what Im doing lol. So I called just a little bit and less than an hr later 3 ran out up to the decoys strutting and gobbling and going crazy. It was the coolest thing I have ever seen in the woods. Of course it takes dad forever to shoot. Im going crazy waiting on him lol. On 2 shoots he had one down and I fired twice at one flying away. Mine didnt fall but I wasnt sure if I hit him or not. So I walked the road attaching the 2 fields and he took off running threw the woods. Sadly enough he didnt run fast enough lol. So the first day for the both of us and we had 2 thunder chickens down in an hour...And Iv heard it was hard lol. I will take beginners luck anyday. Anyways being there with dad and seeing how excited and happy he was, was the best thing in the world. His was 21 lbs with a 7inch beard and mine was 16 lbs with a 5inch beard. Im hooked for life to say the least. I guess I didnt make it a short story. lol sorry

    A comment titled: JEALOUS in response to a report titled: More time in the woods

    Im jealous Ms.Queen... But it sure is beautiful. I will be up there the 1st of the month but not to hunt. Unfortunately. Just to see friends that have tons of deer that come eat out of flower beds while we drink our coffee lmbo. It kills me lol I have even seen deer chase there dog while we were there. Its like the dog is friends with them.

    A comment titled: agree in response to a report titled: Dog running.

    Man I dnt no if it is guys you know but either way if they were dumping out dogs on land that is not theres or dont suppose to be dog hunting I would be saying something. Because your right about putting in all the time and effort for hunting season and dogs will ruin it. I have land I dont even hunt anymore but a couple times a year for the same reason. But atleast they dont dump the dogs directly on it. Dogs will go where they want and I cut them a little slack. I have known guys to lose some good dogs by running them on land they didnt suppose to be on. And I would be irate if they killed 2 nice deer on it to-boot.

    Will..Go to

    type in Gamelands map in the little search box.

    it will say 1 record found witch is View Gameland maps. click on it

    scroll down and click on the #3 on the NC map on the right.

    then click on HOLLY SHELTER....and thats it.. For me it was a lot easier to print it out and then look at it so you will have the key to look at. Plus its a lot of land.

    Let me no if you cant find it.

    A comment titled: map in response to a report titled: holly shelter

    Will google Hollyshelter game land maps or something like that. I cant remember. But just look around and you will find it. If I have time this evening I will try to find it and let you know. But the map is great. And it has the key grid to show you how everything is split up. And if you dont have a map you can easily get loosed back in all those roads lol

    A comment titled: bow or gun in response to a report titled: holly shelter

    Will it is full of deer and some big ones. If you are hunting with bow there is part of it that is only for bow and there is your best chance. If gun you need to get pretty deep in the woods away from the parts that see a lot of hunters. But they do run a lot of dogs there. There is parts close to water so I would recommend trying to find them. Pull on the mags to it if you havnt already and it will help a lot. Good luck and keep us posted.
