Out of State help

Hello all,
Looking for a little help from my fellow Pa hunters who travel out of state for deer. Specifically, if you have ever hunted the following areas and seasons:

Bow season- (Virginia) at C.F. Phelps WMA and Thompson WMA.


Rifle season- (Virginia) at Turkeycock Mt. WMA and White Oak Mountain WMA

(North Carolina) at Caswell State Game Lands

If anyone has hunted any of these particular areas, I'm looking for a little feedback on the conditions you observed. Overhunted, hardly hunted, remote and difficult areas to reach, easily accessible in most areas, for Caswell how's the hog hunting?

I've begun scouting each of these areas via topo and aerial maps. I've also spoken to land managers and Biologists. Overall, my hunting time will be limited. Just trying to get all the intel I can before heading down later this fall.

Good Luck & Shoot Straight

I have killed several turkeys in Caswell when I lived in NC. I have a friend that I hunted turkeys with in NC and he was from Dubois Pa. I moved back to Pa., but he still lives about an hour and half west of Caswell. We never hunted hogs at that time but I will get ahold of him and find out what the hog hunting is like. You should see some of the bucks some of my NC friends are killing know especially in Rockingham County where I used to live.

The older I get the better I was.

I hunted both Phelps and Thompson in rifle season and some other WMA's in VA for rabbits and can tell you their public land gets hit hard. that's been about 10 years ago. bow season I don't know.

buckman-

I saw your post on the Virginia forum as well where I have a different screen name. I live near Thompson and have scouted and hiked it, but never hunted. PM me if you have any questions.

No luck Buckman on the NC hogs. I talked to my buddy and he doesn't hunt them and didn't have much info on hogs.

Pa.Bone,
I have seen some of the bucks their killing down there! Some real good ones and yes, Rockingham is well represented. I have family south of Caswell SGL. I'll be hunting the game lands there, a piece of private ground in Alamance Co. and if things aren't working out try Turkeycock or White Oak in southern Va..

blackpowder,
Thanks for the info.


VaPa hunter,

Thanks, PM sent.


Again, thanks for the replies.

Good Luck & Shoot Straight
