    I know most of y'all are gonna be out hunting all season, but would anyone be interested in a campout sometime in Nov. or Dec. ? Maybe before thanksgiving or in between Christmas? Could do a truck camp, backpacking trip or head out on canoes....I'm game for whatever. Anyone up for a meetup? Ideas/locations?

    I'm in if it's after Thanksgiving... gotta get some venison first, and we're headed up to Chattanooga that week to visit my daughter and SiL. Hope it stays cool... not sure we even HAD a normal rut last year due to the heat, but it's supposed to be at the end of Oct or beginning of Nov most years.

    My preference would be a canoe trip, backpacking, and then car camping. Locations would be Coon Point, KHWA, and maybe Oak Camp in the KNF (isn't that the one you said is pretty nice and not used much?)

    Shame there's not a three-day weekend in there... I've been wanting to do the Neches from Hwy 1013 near Spurger, TX down to Evadale, TX... roughly 22 miles point to point, probably closer to 40 on the curve... can be done in two days, but I've heard 3 is better. There's a place to put in off 1013 you have to pay for, and we'd need a permit from the Big Thicket NF to camp. Maybe that would be a better spring trip, say in March or even April, before it gets TOO hot.

    Wouldn't mind doing the Atchafalaya Basin as a group trip either... I think Nonc Tobe mentioned that he's been there, but I didn't get to talk to him about it on the Coon Point trip...

    Heard Catahoula Lake and Saline Lake, Northeast of Alexandria and Natchitoches respectively, are also nice.

    After looking at the calendar, I’d be good for any of the following weekends:

    1. Nov. 12 (Veteran’s day is on the 11th)

    2. Dec. 3

    3. Dec. 10

    Any of these work for y’all?

    Was thinking about doing it at my camp on private land. Pretty close for the TX guys as well. It’s not quite car camping but pretty dang close to it….about 3/8 mile walk back and I can shuttle gear with an atv so nobody has to go minimalist :D Surrounded by national forest so plenty of hunting opportunities and right next to a creek if you wanted to do some fishing. Not sure how much longer I’ll have this place and always wanted to do a group camp back there.

    Let me know what dates will work for you and if the plan sounds good.

    Tommy, your place is a great idea and Nov 12 seems as good as any. I would love to get a lesson on squirrel huntin' too!

    Id be ready for another get together just about anywhere also, especially a spot where a lil time could be used for some hunting. Seeker, the Atchafalaya Basin those months is probably not the safest place to be considering hunting season and a lot of knuckle heads running around with bottles of whiskey and high powered rifles...

    Alright, well guess I'll just go ahead and set the date for Friday Nov. 11 to Sunday Nov. 13.

    Edit: Started a new thread to keep things clear for other folks Meetup/Campout Nov. 11 - Nov. 13 2016

    Gonna go ahead and close this one
