Joe-man, I just got back from the eastern shore, and cant get enough of it. The hunting leases are cheap compared to where I come from, and there are a lot of deer. It was hot and the rut hadn't started, but we still had plenty of oppurtunitys.
Where in MD are you? I'm new to hunting too and I'm hunting on my property in Baltimore County. There are a ton of deer in Bmore, but few trophies. I recommend finding a farm or private property. Most farmers see deer as a nuisance and will welcome a responsible hunter on to their property.
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
