RE: Hogs in Va

You probably mean Ft. Chiswell. I would not waste my time and energy trying to find them anywhere in VA because they are very scarce.

RE: tips for getting into trapping

Rifleman, if there are so many bobcats and coyotes you can target them instead! Sometimes it is not about the money, but rather the experience gained!

RE: Coyotes in thick cover

I see that you must like hunting turkeys, so try some of those same tactics on the yotes! And, always keep an eye on the downwind side.

I second the cover idea! If your neighbor has the groceries all you need is the cover for them to bed and move through.

RE: Stands per Acre

One thing to keep in mind is the entrance and exit routes. If you are spooking deer entering and/or exiting the stands you will definitely ruin the area regardless of the number of stands or hunters!

RE: OPTIMA ELITE OR PRO ACCURACY

I really like my "regular" optima. It normally shoots about a 1.5" to 2" group at 100 yards. Good enough for me cause I don't intend to shoot past 125 with it.
