I don't hunt, but is it really Turkey season? Excuse me, I Dno. But where I live, not where I go to school there's a Comscope company near by. And I mean there's a pack of wild turkeys running around the company's forest every morning. Prob too far from you and prob wouldn't let you hunt there anyway lol. Just wanna share something with you.

I love fishing though. Bass season

For a Turkey? No thanks, I'll use my 12 gauge. I can't shoot a bow to save my life. My cousins up in Ohio are crazy though, they bow hunt everything. They took a trip up to Canada to hunt Black Bears, and they only took their bows. Also the only 3 in the group that got bears.

Crazy Turkey population down East. (Pender/Duplin/etc).

I was Raccoon hunting before I could walk. Never had the drive to deer hunt. If I do either, I would fish before hunt

Hunting for most is not about the kill, but the "thrill of the chase"

Being in the woods, away from everything for days at a time is fantastic, whether you see any game or not. Hunting camps are cool too. Everyone eats great, tells lies and looks forward to the next day.

Im a fishing guy. Im an enotional guy. I can't put a bullet to an animal, but I wouldn't have a problem putting one through a person :).

The forest is too scary also. I know I'm Asian and and maybe my beliefs might be a little more dramatic, but have any of tall experience strange things during hunting? I heard too many things.

Ain't nothing better than calling a big boss gobbler in. Sitting on the ground calling, him gobbling you can feel the ground shake under you. I've hunted almost everything that runs, jumps or flies, and damn sure don't make any apologies for it.

Not hard for me to hunt deer, venison is one of my favorite meats. The back strap on a deer is one of the best things you will ever eat. I've never been good at fishing, went a bunch as a kid and never seemed to catch anything.

I guess you mean around Charlotte?? I mainly hunt in SC.
You might want to check out Uwharrie National forest. Huge public tract between charlotte and raleigh.
All the public land in SC is about gone. NC not much better. but I did have some co-workers who used to hunt Uwharrie and they talked like it was a good place to hunt.

There used to be a game land tract up at Gardner Webb and it had some turkeys on it. But not sure if it's still public.
Check out NCDNR website see what they got on game lands.

Yeh, I know all about Uwharrie from when I used to go wheelin in my '72 K5 Blazer. Thats where I was thinking of going to hunt, but how is it set up? Don't need blinds or stands for turkey hunting, but do they have them set up where anyone can use them?(For deer hunting mostly). I am still asking around with some friends to see if they know anyone with land out in the boonies that would let me go out and hunt in. And yes, relatively close to Charlotte, I am in the Ballentyne area.
