Headhunter Outdoors Report 2-25-08

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. Nothing much is happening yet folks. A few Blues, an occasional Trout and maybe a red here and there. The weather forecasters are calling for a early spring so maybe it will start the fish biting. The best thing I can tell you is to get your gear ready because when it starts, it’s going to be good!
Turkey season is coming up soon and I’m already getting ready. I went with two off my good friends this past weekend up near Sparta N.C. to convert an old block building on some family property he has, into a hunting shack. We replaced some of the roofing tin and built bunks and a wood stove. We replaced a couple of window panes and cleaned the place up good. Now some of my women readers might not understand about huntin’ camps but I’m sure some of you guys do. It’s a place where memories are made, Lies are told and testosterone oozes from the walls. One of the guys took his 5 year old son with us and I’ll bet you he will remember it for life! One of these days it will be his to pass to his son along with the good memories and traditions that will come. The smell of the wood stove and the company of good friends!
One evening I counted 14 deer and 23 turkeys in the field within a hundred yards and those deer were BIG ya’ll! I know that when season comes in they will become scarce as hens teeth but the prospect is there for some excellent hunting and I can’t wait. You folks need to be getting ready cause I am and remember what the man said” If you ain’t first you’re last!
Well thats it for this week folks,so be safe and take a kid with you! Capt. David

Headhunter Outdoors Report 2-19-2008

Hi folks, Capt. David here with this weeks outdoors report. The water temps are slowly climbing and there is still a lot of bait around in the creeks. Hopefully we will have an early spring and the fish will start biting soon. Now that don’t mean you can’t catch fish now, It’s just harder! I’ve heard that some nice trout are being caught way back in the creeks. A reliable source of mine told me he caught a few back in Kings creek and had been catching them in Turkey creek too. The warm sunny days will warm up the dark bottoms in the creeks faster than a light sandy bottom and all it takes is a few degrees to get the fish feeding. It also looks like we are going to have a banner year on the Redfish this year too. Last summer I found several schools of small fish that were just under the limit and even caught a few that was just a little bigger than the bait I was using. Thats a good sign of the recovery of the fish stocks in N.C. Most fisherman think you have to go to Texas or Louisiana or Florida to catch Reds. Wrong! all of the IGFA records for Red Drum are from N.C. What most of them don’t know is we have a world-class fishery right here. Slot limits and possession limits do work folks. The outdoorsmen and women of this state can be proud that they are helping to insure that we have wildlife and fish here for our grandchildren to enjoy. Take the kids out and show them the natural wonders we have around here. Even if you are not a hunter or fisher, the love of nature needs to be passed on to our kids.
On the hunting side,only a couple more weeks of Quail season boys so you better get to it. The next thing is Turkey season folks and I can’t wait. I’m going to Va. this weekend to get the huntin’ cabin ready for the spring season and to do a little scouting. Now is the time to get your stuff together folks cause it will be here before long and I’m ready! Those longbeards better be on their toes when opening day comes. Well thats about it for this week folks so remember to be safe and take a kid with you! Capt. David
