Quite the opposite for the Lodge Creek Calls gang here in NC. I have a buddy that tagged out, his wife tagged out, and then his nephew tagged out all on the same farm. Mark killed 1, several other guys killed a bird, so it was a good spring for them
Sounds sporty Glad somebody had a good season. It's always different from year to year for everyone. Last year I couldn't step in the woods without calling birds in. A lot of it has to do with the land you have to hunt though, and the land I have is far from awesome. I have small blocks to hunt and the birds are either there or they're not, and this year there were very few anywhere around the areas. There were tons of hens though.
Yeah i know a bunch of people who have killed birds. Its been a pretty good year for most of my buddies. Same thing goes for duck season. I have an idea or too on how we could adjust the duck season a little (within the same season parameters) but I dont see any reason that its totally wrong or any reason to go into february. Never gonna please everybody, just have to hope for the best.
I can live with duck season. But IMO turkey season is way off. I'm not a complainer, I love to hunt and regardless of how ridiculous I think this state is I'm the first one out there......but every year the thought of bringing in turkey season in march gets brought up and every year it's rejected. I'd be happy with a 1 day season in march where you could fill both tags, opposed to the 4 week season in late april early may. Just my own little humble thoughts. I pretty much dislike everything about the ncwrc at this point though. Look at sc, georgia and florida's seasons, and there are state north of us where the season comes in before ours. Makes no sense.
