Still have their antler's

We picked up my trailcam. It was loaded with pics of does. Put it out in another spot and got the enclosed pics. BTW I located a farmer with 300 acres very close to the farm those big "horns" was found on and got permission to hunt. Just have to share the meat with him. I plan to move the trail cam to his farm in a few days.

Oops sorry about the double post-forgot about the earlier one-guess I'm getting old.

Del,

I only lived here for 4 years now and pay to hunt by joining an association. I would be interested in getting together with you to discuss how you look for land and how you approach the land owner.

Here's another tip that will save you money. Instead of buying the high priced minerals at Bass pro or Cabela's go to your local feed store and buy a block or a bag of cattle mineral. It costs about half as much and deer love it. I prefer the loose stuff in a bag. You can just dig a shallow hole pour it in and mix it with the dirt. If you have to use a block place it in a shallow hole so that rain water will pool around it. Deer seem to prefer to eat the salty dirt to licking the block. The above bucks were photographed over a block of cattle mineral.

To get permission to hunt . Dress in clean clothes not camo. Be clean shaven have a haircut. Knock on doors and politely ask permission to hunt. Offer to share the game you take. Promise to shut all gates, stay out of unharvested fields, etc. Don't be afraid of rejection. Everytime I'm turned down I figure the next one will say yes. You will have more success farther away from large cities. Do this well before hunting season opens. When you find a good place and get permission send a basket of fruit at Christmas or something simular. AND do not ever violate a landowner request such as not bringing friends. I've had so called friends go back without telling me a ruin the whole thing. Another time a friend took me hunting on a farm he was not supposed to take friends on. I never went hunting with him again.
