I picked Clybel because it was close enough to drive to the morning of. Guess I'll start saving up for Piedmont now. If you like to fish, camp, hike or dove hunt, Clybel is probably a good WMA but way too many roads and public pressure to house turkeys IMO. Anyone else ever hunt THE PLACE?
Did the same thing you did. Wasted my points. Itís only 3 miles from my house. There were birds on it then. Heard a couple scouting. Apparently every other hunter heard them too.. Iíll never waste another point out there again.
