Hunting The Suburbs With Meat Missiles
Here's a great little article about urban bowhunting from Atlanta Magazine. Many of us out here in SoCal can relate to this a little too well. As you read, just replace Atlanta with Los Angeles and you'll feel right at home.

We’re near Hartsfield-Jackson airport, but Johnson doesn’t want to say exactly where. His reluctance is not unusual. Hunters everywhere closely guard their favorite spots, but hunters in metro Atlanta are especially cagey. They fear resistance from residents who know little about hunting and from poachers who kill deer illegally. While state law prohibits hunting with a gun in Clayton, Cobb, and DeKalb, as well as in Fulton County north of Georgia Highway 92, there’s nothing illegal about going out with a bow. For the urban hunter, the tricky part is finding land.

I'd be willing to bet that many of you feel the same way as Willie Johnson does. I know I do.

  1. SoCal- First of all, love this title.

    Secondly, I can't imagine not having a TON of land to hunt off of. We're 20 minutes from vast nothingness.
