I'm heading out tomorrow sometime for five days. Unguided on private land. But with the forecast for warm weather, I'll probably do as much fishing as hunting. I need to kill 3 does for some folks here but that won't take long. I'm thinking pre-spawn bass in the 5-8 pound range.

I haven't hunted in the over three weeks, I guess I can still shoot. I was thinking yesterday, I haven't missed in three years, gun or bow, probably be my luck to blow a shot on a big one.

Well, ON the land I hunt, there's really no pressure, but AROUND it there's been some. I hunt in NW AL. My best scouting day down there, I saw 21 does and two bucks. I took a nice one the week before Christmas. It's my father-in-law's property, and there's a decent span of time between my wife and her brother. She's 31 and he's 18. Anyway, I'm teaching him a lot, and I told him I'd be sure that he got the next buck off the land, so now the pressure is way down because he doesn't get to hunt it but once every week or two (he's busy doing 18 year old things when I'm not down there, ha!).

I'll be hunting public land the rest of the month, and there's a lot of pressure there, typically. The guys I talk to apparently don't know how to let a buck walk, so there are some monsters out there, but those dudes aren't going to find them. I'm going after a couple 160s this weekend in Colbert County.

From what I can tell the southern part of the state and the NE part of the state are great, especially near Ft. Payne and Gadsden. Check out last year's harvest report: http://outdooralabama.com/research-mgmt/...st%20Report.pdf

Pretty telling.

According to a friend, last week Lauderdale WMA only had around 160 permits handed out for 3 days on over 20,000 acres of QDM managed property surrounded by lots of managed property.

Yeah, Lauderdale has a lot, but there are a lot of hunting leases in Waterloo that surround it. I think they're done with gun hunts, though.
