    Youth hunter bags 23-pound gobbler in Northampton County, N.C.

    Youth hunter Matt New killed his first turkey during the 2017 opening day of Youth Season with a bow, and he and his dad set out to make it two years in a row on April 7 of this year during a hunt in Northampton County. The weather forecast for that Saturday called for rain, but after a promising day of scouting on Friday, the two hunters decided to give it a chance anyway. It paid off.

    Measurements count

    Just like fertilizers and lime treatments, herbicides are necessary tools to make food plots shine and produce bumper results. Yet herbicides must be used at the correct concentration to receive maximum benefits. And too much juice will result in crop stunting and even death.

    Try these Carolinas turkey tricks

    For the six weeks or so, we won’t be at breakfast very often. We’ll fall asleep early, while you’re barely finished watching Jeopardy after supper. Our fingers will be chalk-stained, and we’re not even teachers. We’ll have bags under the bags under our eyes. If we’re outside in the backyard during any daylight hours, you might find us looking for a big, thick tree truck to sit down against. Somebody from the office might call home to ask where we are and if we’re coming into work.
