Any E. Tenn hunters

Postby Hoosiernavy » February 19th, 2009, 4:03 am

Hey all,
just wanted to check in to see if we had any E. Tenn hunters out there. I hunt on my wifes family ground in Union Co.
 
Took my first bird ever in Tennessee last year on the rainiest day I had ever been in, I swear if me and that turkey would have been any wetter we would have been classified as fish.
20lbs 9.5in beard 1inch spurs
 
Hope to add to him this year and get some of his realitives.

Hi, We moved to Hampton a little over a year ago, I thought I would try the national forest up along the east side of Watuga Lake .

We don't have any family here, all of the kids, grandkids, and greatgrandkids are still shoveling snow in upstate NY. We left NY in '94, too much snow and cold!!

Man small world, my wife's best friend is from Big Stone, Gap. but now resides in Johnson City, Tn.
 
I am looking forward to this season, going to make it a challenge going to a couple of TVA spots that you can only access by boat.

Hi rbewilson, Sorry it took so long to reply! I am new to turkey hunting, but I have been reading every thing I could. One of the things that I read about said it was best to wait until about 10-14 days before the season started to scout because of the changing flocks, and distribution of the birds. I don't know if this is a standard practice or not. What is your thoughts?
