Hey guys, I am a new poster to this forum but have been looking around on it for a while. I am from North Carolina and planning on coming out this November for an archery rut hunt. I am coming out there with a fellow bowhunter from North Carolina and we are looking for any advice on hunting the Rathbun Lake area. We have applied for a license past couple of years and didn't get drawn so it should be this year! I think we already have a place to stay right close to if not on Rathbun Lake (my friend is taking care of the place to stay). Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated, we are trying to do as much research as we can because unfortunately we are not going to get a scouting trip prior to being out there during hunting season. Thank you for your help, we really appreciate all tips and advice.
