The rut is in full swing in Georgia with bucks chasing does everywhere according to the forum. So I’m going hunting with my brother-in-law in Elberton again this year. Its only fitting, while the girls hunt for deals on Black Friday, I’ll hunt for meat instead. Last Xmas, we gave it a shot only to find that every yokel in the county popping off their new toys which scared the deer away for miles.
I’m assured the stand has been productive as two nice does have already been taken this season. Apparently, venison burgers and italian sausage await me in Decatur. I may just have to “finish” the sausages in my brother’s smoker too.
Not to knock shopping too much since I do enjoy it, I’ve got a backup plan in case we get rained out. With guidance from Red Clay Soul, I’ve got a few places I may have to wander in to.
- Billy Reid, Atlanta, GA
- Oakleaf & Acorn, Braselton, GA
- Five Mile Club/Onward Reserve, Athens, GA
- Sid Mashburn, as per usual.
