Life is too short not to teach your daughters how to hunt. This sport isn't just for men anymore and it's having a resurgence of newcomers with the popularity of movies like the Hunger Games. This became apparent to me when I started being referred to as the main character of the movie, Katniss. The more I heard it the more confused I was getting.
Find out some of the preliminary numbers from this years bear season, plus we'll show you some of the photo's of the successful bear hunters in our viewing area.

Danny and I had a great time at Bad to the Bone today – looked like a good turnout too, maybe sixty people, which equals more toys for the program. I didn’t take a ton of photographs, everybody was bundled up (it was around 40′ when I got there with some rather chilly gusts of wind, though it warmed up gradually…) and just trying to shoot and stay warm.

Remember, Georgia Power powerlines are private.

Editor’s Note: Georgia Power Company (GPC) contacted GON and wanted to address two issues they are regularly dealing with in regards to their properties and powerlines.
Myth No. 1: Powerline rights-of-way are open to the public. Nothing could be further from the truth. In most cases, GPC has an easement with the landowner that only allows us to maintain our poles and lines through their property. Private individuals still own the land, and they control all access outside of our maintenance and operations. If you want to hunt, hike, ride, or simply visit a powerline right-of-way, you must have permission of the property owner unless the property is clearly marked allowing that activity and open to the public. You should contact the property owner directly for permission before you access any land.
Myth No. 2: All GPC lands are open to the public. Much of the land surrounding GPC lakes is owned by the company; however, recreation and public access are only allowed in designated areas. Only specific activities, noted in our plant operating licenses, are allowed in our public parks. These activities are also described on signage within the parks and on the GPC website. These lands are generally not available for hunting unless so advertised. You can waterfowl hunt some GPC lakes. For more info on those, go to http://www.georgiawildlife.com/Hunting/WaterfowlOpportunities?cat=1.
Some extended properties around GPC lakes, like Oconee and Rum Creek WMAs, are open to hunting but are managed by DNR. Currently, there are no public hunting lands managed by GPC.

Shooting mature deer in New York State isn’t the easiest task to accomplish. Heck, let’s face it – shooting mature deer in Iowa or Illinois isn’t easy either, but you get my drift.
That’s why I take great pride in saying that between my Dad and me, we’ve killed at least one mature buck the past five seasons.
Heading into this archery season, Dad and I had a handful of target deer, but there was one buck in particular we were hoping to get a crack at.

Danny finally got, as he put it, ‘a buck worth mounting!’ This is the same week I just reset my bow for 3D tournaments, but hey, I can get it set back for hunting in half an hour…

See that button, there, to the left? The one that says “Top 100 Sites/Hunting” under “VOTE HERE?” Please push that button when you visit the site (or any site where you see it.) I don’t make a penny from this site, I do it as a side project, donating my time, and so far, 100% of the work done on this site is by me alone. I spend about two hours on an average day looking for material or doing some back-end work (like deleting spam comments) on the site, which spikes a bit when 3D season is here and I do my ‘shoots this weekend’ posts. The Top 100 Sites button is to a tracking site that simply ranks hunting web pages, nothing more.

“From Colton Burgess .. Hey can you please share this, this is my uncle Paul’s biggest buck he has killed. It means so much to him because his son, my cousin, Mylin Pennington passed away last year and this was a deer he was after. A nice big whitetail, I don’t know how to put this on your wall or anything so I thought I would ask you if you would. Thank you!”
