Default Not much talk about it...

There's not much talk about it broadly and I'm not sharing outside of the 4 people here but there's 2 new SEGA WMA's opening this year. The one in Bulloch County has gotten some news recently but the one in Camden County hasn't been talked about much.

The one in Camden (Ceylon) got added to the turkey quota hunt list so if you want in, better go apply. It's GOOD property. I know the surrounding landowners and have never gotten an invite.I'm currently debating dropping my River Creek app and putting in for there... The only downside is they're doing 3 hunts with 40 people each, 1 bird limit. It's going to hammer the population.

How big a place? 40 on a hunt seems like a lot.

Decent for coastal deer. This property borders Davis Loveís land and Cabin Bluff. Basically as good as it gets down here.

Decided to drop RC all together from my app. Looking at some of the results from the last few years, the success rate is LOW. Does not appear (at least on paper) to be worth burning 10 years of points. I threw a few of my son's A/C points on it for the A/C hunt just to see what the fuss is about and changed my app to Ceylon.

I drove through Kingsbury WMA on Monday. Spoke with one of the IDNR rangers who gave me a lot of insight on where to start. My bud and I are going to back out next week and maybe do a little walking.

Headed to Ceylon for the first hunt. Took two points. Dawson got the first hunt at River Creek. Should be a good time!

I still have 8 for turkey

Unless RC is on fire when we go in March, I'm not sure I'll put in for it again. The reports from the last few years have been terrible. There were 0 birds killed on THE PLACE last year.

I burned 2 points last year but still have 4. I know a good one you can get with 2 if you want to get together next year

Sounds like a plan. I tried for what looked like a good one but hard to get on.
