Singning in the Rain on opening day in Aurora, NC AKA Lee Creek

The day started off with everyone meeting in the contractors parking lot to a wet and gloomy day. Everyone in anticipation of whether or not if the hunt was still on. Then the word came in that the bus that takes us into the mine broke down on the way to get us. But thankfully Curtis Ormand came to the rescue with another bus and a couple of vans. THANK YOU CURTIS!!! And thanks to all the guides for for all there hard work and dedication. With out them there wouldnt be a hunting season in Aurora.

My wife and I were one of the last ones in so we had a slow start. Most of the people were already a ways out in the mine. But with how big the area is for this year it didnt matter. As we started our walk out i saw a nice area of Pungo that i told my wife to check out because it was passed by everyone. Then as she started to hunt i took off to find some of the prime Yorktown. If i would have stuck with her for 5 min i would have seen the huge Chubby that she found. As i walked for about 20 min i finally got into some really nice Yorktown and stayed there all day in the hopes of finding the big one. Well that didnt happen this trip but i did manage to find a great assortment of other things. I was happy overall for the whole trip and i guess i will just have to wait until the next time for the big one.
