      I’ve been really blessed this year to hunt so many different habitat types. GA has many different physiographic regions, each with different plant species, soil types, and topography.

      How about some pictures from some places you hunted this past year?

      I love going to different areas and shaking things up!

      I’ll start with a mountain in Idaho where we hunted cougars this year.

      Next is a picture of the creek that forms a boundary on my north ga hunt club. This club is on the foothills of the mountains. It’s pretty steep and is mostly made up of loblolly pines with hardwood draws along the creeks. The soil is a loamy clay and this creek is loaded with smallmouth bass.

      It’s about thirty minutes from my house.

      Next is a picture from true N GA. This is the area of the Chattahoochee National Forest where we bear hunt.

      It’s very steep with rocky, loam soils. It’s mostly made up of hardwood stands with some mature virginia pines and a lot of mountain laurel and rhododendron.

      Steep and big country.

      This is a picture from my club in southeast GA. It’s flat with sandy soils and is mostly made up of loblolly pines with thick, briar understory. The hardwoods along the creeks are scrubby water oaks and the swamps are filled with tupelo and cypress. As you can see, spanish moss lives on everything that will climb.

      This is a shot of one of the monster water oaks that lives at tuckahoe wildlife management area in southeast GA.

      It does have some pine uplands but is largely massive swamp bottoms. These trees are old as the dirt and roving bands of switchcane make these swamps hard to navigate.

      Sorry for the rifle in the photo. It was for scale.

      Finally, this is a photo of the typical habitat at Blackbeard Island.

      Massive live oaks and some hickories with pure palmetto understory.

      Dissecting the island at many places are huge savannahs of grasslands.

      I hunted all of these places this year, plus one other area in extreme southwest GA, but the habitat there is much the same as that found around my southeast ga club.

      I feel very blessed after these last 365 days!

      Great photos Dave!

      I have millions saved on my webshots page but they just changed the system and I have to figure out how to re-save the photos to my computer. I’ll figure it out and post some more.

      Love seeing pictures of different scenery and LOVE traveling to alien places.

      I’d like to go through your whole library sometime.

      Another view of Horse Pen Bay. This is a 300 or so acre wetland loved by deer, turkey, small game, fish, alligators, waterfowl and this hunter.

      I watched the biggest river otter I’ve ever seen right there in deer season the day before we duck hunted.

      He was a more successful fisherman than us.

      Mule deer, whitetails and turkey roam here. This is one of my favorite spots just to sit and do nothing.

      I snapped this picture today on top of a ridge on some public ground I was stomping around on.

      In the piedmont of Georgia.

      That looks like prime turkey woods to me….
