One for the girls :)

This spring season is proving to be a productive one! Lots of beautiful birds out there doing their thing…what an incredible display to witness!  We are so thankful to be able to spend time in the woods during this gorgeous time of year… and to watch mother nature at her finest is an amazing bonus…


Turkey Turkey!

Once again…Pretty work Gordon!!!  As always!!!!  You are the master 🙂  What a nice bird…looking forward to next time!!!

Youth Day!

We had 3 fantastic young men today… It is such a joy to see our youngsters love the outdoors!  One responsive gobbler was chased off by a 300 pound black bear who wandered into the hunt, obviously curious about the call and determined to check everybody out up close… a fantastic sight to see (although a little unnerving!) but not very conducive for a successful hunt 🙂  Lots of turkeys around and very active during this warm spring!!    Congratulations to Daniel for getting this great bird… Jimmy and Bobby – no worries… the season has just begun!  Thank you every body for a wonderful start to spring turkeys!!

Turkey season starts April 14th

We have a handful of days left for the spring turkey season 2012..Just wanted to post a few pictures from last year..Also the sound striped bass fishing is great right now and we have time available during the weekdays.

Swan Hunting

Its no secret that NC has the best swan hunting wintering grounds in the lower 48..Five thousand permits per year are issued.It is quite beautiful to watch these graceful flyers decoy..We are even lucky enough to kill a few snow geese while we hunt them some days..Albemarle Outfitters still has 100% success on swan hunts every year and we still offer no kill no pay hunts for swan..Here are some pics from this years swan hunts.Notice the one picture with the swan flying in the background..
