Woj I just got home from Stokes. Yesterday was the absolute worse opener I have ever been a part of. Only shots I heard all day were from 12pm to 2pm. Maybe 2 shots at dark.
We must really start thinking about the future of our sport. Without the youngsters it is doomed. We need to promote like never before. The next time a newbie asks for help on here everyone please think twice before giving them a hard time. I remember a time when finding a spot to park at Stokes on 6 day was hard. Yesterday you could have parked anywhere. I saw 4 guys in 2 days of hunting.
I did get to meet bucnadoe (Bill) up there. That was worth the trip. A great guy that wants nothing more than to spend the week with his son in the woods. I hope his son gets a slammer.
