Drag... I'm up for that. I need to pattern mine also... but I'm booked until the last weekend in march. Let me know when you want to head up and I'll see if I'm free.

Bowhuntercop... you hunt up near flatbrook?

I've spent most of my turkey hunting time in the flatbrook area within a mile or so of the river. Two years ago, I came across a black bear sow and three cubs (all about the size of cats). This year, I have a spot picked out on the mountains on the northwest side of the brook... probably soutwest of where you're heading.

I'm going to the range on March 17th, mandatory qualifactions for the job, I hate range day, its such a loooooonnnnngggggggg day. Cl [no swearing please] room in the morning, then written test, then shooting duty weapon both night/day shooting, shotgun, then M-16, then if there is enough time then I qualify with my off duty gun.

Yeah, I know where you are then... between dingmans and 206 along old mine road. I was out in my Land cruiser over the summer with the wife and saw a few mother hens with their broods right in that area... actually the corn fields just north of dingmans bridge.

Yeah, that area is really heavy with bear... the deer numbers in the area are on the way down from what I've heard/read... but at the same time, the rubs I've seen up there are big

I agree the deer heard isnt what it once was, I would in the past see 25 plus deer per day while bow hunting, then it went down to 3 deer per day, this year seemed better, but I didn't see any rack bucks, like I have in the past. My NJ bear came from this area.

Splitlim, Blackriver range is for Archery and Skeet. The signs there say you aren't allowed to pattern your guns there. But if you have some pull.;)

I am heading to the range either Wed, Thrus, or Friday morning if anyone wants to meet. I can only shoot until about 9:30 AM...then I gotta head to work. What does this mean? It means a nice and early arrival for me.
