    Not to make ya'll jealous or anything, but my job affords me a wonderful luxury of having the following hunting trips set in stone:

    Labor Day Weekend: Georgia Dove Hunt
    Mid September: Oklahoma Dove Hunt
    Late October: NC Black Bear, Boar, and Whitetail hunt
    Nov 5, 6 & 7: PA Grouse Hunt and Steelhead Fishing Trip
    Nov. 19-22: Mississippi Duck Hunt & Ole Miss vs LSU Football Game
    Nov. 23-25: W. Oklahoma Mule Deer Hunt
    Nov. 26-28: Georgia Grouse Hunt (wild, not farm raised)
    Early Dec: SD Pheasant Hunt/Slaughter (our group has averaged 45 birds a day over the last 3 years - we just finalized the plans for this today!!!!)


    I travel a hell of a lot for work. The fall hunting season makes it all worth it.

    Ooooh. Jealous. NC Black Bear are big, but not like the browns in Alaska.

    I was hoping to get to Minnesota for a moose hunt, but didn't get it set in time.

    I've actually never been to Alaska. Was supposed to fly up to ANWAR a couple of years ago, but the trip was called off. I will make it there eventually.

    ANWR. Arctic national wildlife refuge. Not a lot there but seekts. Do a river hunt in Western Alaska,in rafts,fly in/out. Innoko comes to mind. Self guided,the cost is in reason.

    Well everyone, beat this fall hunting itinerary!!!


    Sept-- red squirrel hunt, with possiblity for chipmunk.

    Oct-- feral pigeon stalk. Could also involve chipmunks if they're in season.

    Nov-- deer season where I won't see any. May resort to stalking chipmunks.

    Dec-- Chipmunk season is over. There is no reason to hunt anymore.

    I reckon other than a couple of goose hunts, I'll be a self guided duck, dove, deer, hog hunter again. *sigh* But, hey, at least I have places to hunt. That's something to brag about in Texas.

    countertop,

    Sounds liek a lot of fun but I think Jim's got you beat.

    I just have New Mexico archery (recurve) elk in Sept. this year.

    Next year it's 10 days of flyfishing and recurve Russian Brown Bear in Kamchatka. Just 4.5 hrs West of anchorage via Vladivostok Air.

    We stay in Aberdeen and hunt on a few ranches with folks we work with

    Georgia doves are good. I'm more psyched for the unhunted land, teaming with wild bobwhite covey's, I found and secured rights too hunt over turkey day weekend.

    Its mostly bear and feral swine elimination (yes, you have feral swine in eastern carolina) there too many whitetails not to take a few, but thats not the primary goal.

    Yep, though the cost of my many hunting trips will be far less than his :)

    I'm about 3 miles from some good dove hunting fields, a little more from a float trip down the river for squirrel and dove by the river flat corn fields.
    deer hunting and rabbit out the back door.
    unfortunately have to drive about 50 miles to get to good grouse hunting.
    unless I get a hoped-for invite down to South Calinky for feral/wild hog I won't get a chance to go.
    I may get an invite to go bear hunting with some old timers that dog 'em if I'm lucky.
    most of my efforts are towards the river trips and deer hunting. realy stocks the freezer.

    Yeah,but you ought to see what its costing my non-resident hunting buddy $400 moose tag:eek: $800 to get here. The only reason he can do it is because the guide[me]works cheap. Just leave behind those extra MREs and call it good.:)

    Yep, just elk. I applied for Mule Deer, Antelope and Ibex also.

    Kamchatka is expensive but it's 2+ years of saving and planning. With a landmass the size of California and only one road in, there should be lot's of fish and hopefully a few bears that have never seen a human.

    countertop - while in the aberdeen area, make the trip to watertown to see the redlin art center if you haven't already. you can't cover it in one afternoon, but i think you'll like it.

    as for fall hunting, i'll be hunting whitetails, mulies, and antelope. no elk for me this year, but that's ok. i'll have 5 whitetail hunts, 2 mulie hunts and 2 antelope hunts, plus i'll be taking my daughter out for her first hunt, for a total of 10 big game hunts. not a whole lot of time left over for elk this year.

    good luck to all of us who are chomping at the bit... big game opens for me in september, and i'm already pretty excited!

    They must've messed up NM's deer regulations if you have to draw for a deer. I haven't hunted out there since the early 90s, haven't kept up. I'd planned to go back and do muzzle loader season eventually, but haven't.

    Dakotasin,

    We head to Aberdeen every year. Make camp at the White House Inn. Never heard about the Redlin Center. Will have to check it out. I've got a bunch of his prints - it seems like I win one every year. I have a couple in my office and a few in my man cave, the rest are in the attic. Not sure what to do with them. He's got some great stuff, and then some less then stellar stuff. But I suspect it would be a cool trip none the less.

    worth the trip from aberdeen.

    hunting pheasants in december is the best time to do it... pheasants are easier to find, dogs don't get tired, heat stroke possibility for the dogs are slim... absolute best time to hunt pheasants... i rarely mess with pheasants anymore, even opening weekend, but if i do, i do it in december.
