I hope you find a good hunt. If you dont find a hunt and want to come and hunt with me in Massachusetts i will put you on some deer. I have shot three deer out of this one stand the last three years. Not midwestern giants but decent northeastern deer, a five, six and eight point. It would be my pleasure to let you hunt there, thank you for your service.
Good that you are coming home and thank you for what you have done. We have some openings at Kansas Racks & Quacks for this up coming bow season if you contact me I will give all are information and website.
A little background information.
This would be the first time we have ever leased any ground and the only reason we are doing it now is because we are geting ready to build a house. We have manged our land and don't want more than 3 bucks harvested--so it is a max 3 person lease.
What we have.
We have 320 acres of combination creek bottom ground (creek, timber, funnels, pasture ponds, and small fields of alfalfa and soy beans) to lease. It is very huntable and easy to get in and out. If you are interested and would like more information let me know.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
