HELLO GENTS! I'm new to the forum and NC hunting so hang in there. After a futile preseason effort of hustling and driving all over creation to shake hands with farmers and landowners (seems like every farm or landowner in the state is leased out) I am focusing more on public land now (specifically Alcoa Game Lands) for the fact that they have the 6 day hunting schedule. I am not looking to slay a trophy by any stretch but some meat for the freezer wold be superb. I have scouted there and seen plenty of sign, both human tracks and deer tracks also lots of dog tracks abound (Oh boy)
Does anyone on here have any experience or luck bow hunting this area? (Specifically where Alcoa straddles rowan and davie counties on the Yadkin river) I've scouted quite a few different areas and found some good oak bottoms with access to thick cover and with the river right there. it seems to be a win win 'minus all the foot traffic.' Anyway, I am looking forward to chatting. Cheers gang, should be an interesting season!
