    I've been wondering if we have any GCO members here who are gearing up for hunting season. I've hunted most of my life and look forward to deer season for bow and gun as well as quail and turkey seasons.

    The biggest hurdle here in Georgia has been finding good hunting land and good hunt clubs with members who can appreciate an Italian from New Jersey! :lol: If anyone here has any good leads or personal recommendations, they'd be greatly appreciated. Of course, a pile of dirt somewhere on the property with a couple hundred yards in front of it would be a fun place to unleash the ARs in between seasons too.

    PS: I may not speak with a southern twang, but I make one helluva chicken parmigiana and nobody can come close to my lasagna!!! :wink: :D

    I've wanted to get into hunting. I've never done it. There's one for Bryan/Screven/Bulloch counties, I do believe. I think I remember seeing it advertised on TV a few times. I guess I could rig the mag caps for my AK to start, haha.

    I'm not particularly interested in hunting, but it is a skill I'd like to have at least rudimentary knowledge of, so if any of you are interested in teaching a newbie, let me know!

    Be careful its addictive. I hunt public land(when I have the time and money) we can probably work something out.

    First step get your hunters certification.

    its suppose to be Joisey :p

    Hunting is addictive - I sat in corn fields & woods in NJ & PA with a recurve bow and then went out during shotgun season.

    I'd love to try a dove shoot if ya'll know anyplace that appreciates a nice Italian girl from NJ ;)

    I've hunted for deer, fox, pheasant & shot a ram - but never dove. Dove looks like a fun time. I'd wouldn't mind going for a turkey hunt.

    the way the woods have been cleared recently around the acworth (hwy92) area near allatoona I wouldn't be surprised if there's some good deer seen in the public land around allatoona. We're already seeing deer running the fields behind my subdivision & my house borders the army corp properties by the lake. So I'm guessing the deer are scrambling to find a new home


    Bulldawg? did you hunt in NJ?

    I'm working on the online certification now. I have to do that, print some stuff out and show up at a class next month.

    Hurm. None of the locations seem to be both 1) nearby and 2) on dates that I am free. I will have to look harder, I guess. Maybe go on a day I have a doctor's appointment.

    I just learned something new.. thank you

    I didn't realize if one wants to hunt on public land in GA - the hunter education course is required. I miss the date by *cough* 3 yrs

    do I understand correctly if you hunt on private land no course is required. just buy the license/tags

    Claire,

    I've been out of NJ for 25 years, although my family is still spread from Manasquan to North Bergen. I used to hunt all over NJ when I was young but when the urban sprawl took over most of the good private land and it resorted to the WMAs, I bugged out. I had a really good deer lease up in Stillwater, NJ for a lot of years and pheasant hunted primarily in Flemmington....but I'm sure those places are gone now.

    I grew up in North Bergen, NJ, (not Bergen county). If you come into NJ via the Lincoln Tunnel, turn right and go about through Hoboken to enter North Bergen. I like to refer to it as the "armpit of New Jersey"....although I wouldn't have wanted to grow up anywhere else.

    How bout you?

    I just happen to know when some Hunters Education classes are available... :wink:

    And the instructor is awesome, not to mention a good looking devil.

    The course is required no matter if your hunting public or private land. It is good for life and in all fifty states and the providences of canada.

    I think I know the instructor you're referring to. Does he live down south? No longer in active service Marine? Fundraising chair for GCO? Really ugly face?
