He is going back Tuesday but the forecast isn't looking good for us in Alleghany County for another week or so.i was gonna go look today but i ended up goin fishin. i think these damn cold fronts that are gonna be comin thru are gonna make us wait a little longer, but i might be wrong. hope ur spots dont get flooded out man, and i hope ur son finds a monster. good luck yall!
Been busy @ work, but went out Wednesday Afternoon and found another 14, son and I fried them up last night .... Lordy they were tasty. Should be big and popping this weekend, Happy Huntn Va!We went yesterday and found 11 keepers, going back this afternoon to go over picked area and finish the remaining area we didn't get to yesterday
Barndog, can you tell me at what elevation your finding them... Me and my dad are coming down this Friday and be in the Bent Mountain area and it's like 2,600 and I'm hoping we are not too early.I found about 30 white ones in Giles today. From the looks of the woods the blacks have come and gone. This late cold may make for a bad season???
Dollar Tree has mesh lingerie bags with zippers in a pack of 3 for $1, been using them for years!I was in Walmart today and checked the laundry section for mesh bags. They had the lingerie bag on clearance for $1 and the pop up laundry bag is normally priced $2. The pop up bag is probably too big to carry in the woods(though I wish I needed one that big). The lingerie bag looks to be perfect.
I do have to say that I don't really believe in the mesh bag theory. If it worked, the paths I have walked in and out of for the last 40 years should be loaded with merkels. I even take the water I clean them up in and dump in the woods, nothing. Mesh bags also get hung up in briars and brush easily.
