It closes Thursday.

Reports I have heard is still pretty dead. But I may slip out there Wednesday or Thursday just to say I did.

Heard two Wednesday. They didn't want to play.

The birds are about two weeks away from being ready. But that does us no good since season is closed now.

Everywhere you go is clearcut after clearcut.

It may not "look" as we've grown accustomed to seeing it, cannot be hunted as we've done in the past, but I'll bet you a dollar against a donut, both the deer & the turkey populations dramatically increase because of it.

Anytime the habitat improves faster than the game population grows (which is exactly what's been happening at Catoosa), it can be much tougher hunting for a while, but not because there's less game. It's more because the critters have more to eat, and less need to more around, coupled with their travel patterns being altered as well. Then suddenly, our proven methods for hunting them in hardwoods no longer work. Bottom line, the critters usually adapt much quicker than us hunters, their populations will increase, and we'll have better hunting sooner or later.

Some of the areas cut a few years ago at Catoosa are now just absolutely beautiful oak savannas. These areas can now healthily support a lot more deer and turkey than the mature forests that preceded the savannas.

My problem with Catoosa is too many people and too many people riding ATV's all over the place. It has become more of an off-road ATV playground than a place to enjoy hunting.

First 3-4 hunts should be a draw hunt with a low quota if not all quota hunts. Way too many people running around not hunters, PEOPLE. It would make for a more desirable hunt.

Its difficult for twra to cover all the trails but plenty of people ride on off limit areas out there. One group of Yahoos who hunt one of my favorite areas has a habit of tearing down the "foot travel only" signs and making their own trail with atv's.
