As long as it's all legal with the landowner and tags are all good, hunt away. The others didn't honor the deal. I always make sure I have the Landowner permission on paper. I'm paranoid. :D

well,sounds like its all a GO! the cool part is,the landowner may be filming some hunts for me while he's learning to hunt. i think i might get him set up w a bow after season if he's interested. i've got a spare that could use a home

I think that you've just been offered the deal of the year. Jump all over it. If it was me, there would'nt be a safe deer anywhere near that 20 acres of apples. Go for it and fill both his and your freezers, you lucky Hawg you! :D

You are right to not step on toes ...family can be so touchy, BUt the land owner came to you Because they were not filling his condision..the frezzer.. Lucky hawg you

Guys,I'm gonna be hittin that hard. just walked the land. it is carpeted with apples and acorns. adjoining the property are 3 houses with property. 1 listed for sale,1 is a vacation home(summer),the other is being foreclosed on. across the road is another 10acre piece that has an old barn and the foundation of a house that burnt years ago. that 10 acres is all grown over and abandoned and also contains oaks and a thick creek bottom. and i have access to all of it,not just the original 20 i was asked to hunt!just over 50 acres total! i'm freakin geeked outta my mind right now. if i knew how to link a google earth pic,i'd show an aerial view. the well kept and trimmed grass runs right to the edge of the orchard and has THICK patches of overgrown nastiness. and i couldn't believe i found an active scrape and 2 fresh,still moist rubs in the middle of the carpet of freshly chewed upon apples.

i'm gonna be provin myself and will most likely,judging by the way the landowner was talking,end up w sole permission to hunt this property next season. The dude doesn't like guns,and mentioned giving me his Ruger 10/22 as a thank you! How cool is that?! i'll be hunting it either tonight or tomorrow. Woo Hoo!

uhh,does anyone else happy pee? it may be just the 2 pots off coffee since 8 this morning,but i've had buttery flies feelin in my tummy and can't stop happy peeing over my excitement. lol TMI,maybe. but i don't care! i've got new huntin land,i've got new huntin land!

too be continued,batteries not include,and if ya sprinkle when ya tinkle,be sweet and whipe the seat.

ok,yellow outline is a very rough idea of the accessable land. red "A" is the orchard,"O" is the oaks,blue line is a creek. if i actually put the red dots on there like i was going to,those are the 2 stand locations. my editing skills suck badly. lol. i'll have a better idea of the property when i actually get some time in the stand. looks very promising.

well,saw a few does and 2 smallish bucks bout 60yds out move through a briar patch. visited the LO after dark,had some coffee and picked up the .22. He told me morning seems to be the best time. Says he sees them crossing the rd from the south,headed to the orchard to the north,along the east side of the property,and feed at the back of the property along the orchard/grass line. so I'll hunt that stand(li'l red dot by the big red "A"). once i get a feel for their movements,i can put up my own stands or use the climber accordingly.

the LO is more than just the LO. He was one of my good friends in high school at the Christian school i graduated from. His cousin(along with my younger brother) is the one that isn't shooting any deer,and was my youth group leader. I lost track of my buddy after graduation and haven't seen him in close to 20yrs. Come to find out,I lived on the same rd for 6yrs less than 5miles away and could've been hunting this property the whole time. DOH!

So,I'll be back out there in the morning. but it's gonna be COLD. Highs in the low 30's w 10-15mph winds. BRRRR!

Nice looking property. I was going to post last night but it seemed you made up your mind to go after this. Good decision. I like the looks of the creek running along the oaks. It seems at the bottom right hand corner of your O there might be a small clearing between the oaks and the creek. That looks a lot like a setup I am using at my Uncle's property. Good luck, hope to see some harvest photos.

HawgEnvy
12-07-2011, 07:45 PM
yeah,there's a decent clearing at the bottom of the hill bout 55-60yds to the south of the stand i hunted tonight. that stand is gonna be a hot spot for early season when all the acorns drop

ends Jan 1st. In the woods now. Got out late cuz my wife wanted McD's for breakfast. Walked up on 11 deer feed on the edge of the oaks n apples...ALL within 10 yds of the stand I sat last night. Drew on one broadside at 30yds and was waiting for it to take another step or 2. I adjusted my position to hopefully get a clearer shot. My coat was caught snagged on some briars and a doe that I didn't see that was bout 1ryds ahead of me and just inside some thick stuff busted me. At least I'm seein deer. Only a matter of time

married with 6 kids. so family of 8. got 5 deer this season,donated one,and out of the remaining 4,i'm down to a couple roasts. but if you can worm your way in,the kids might save ya some scraps. i already have to share what scraps i get with my Rottweiler. God forbid he eats the cats instead of snuggling them. lol

ElkSlayer

Sounds like you better shoot more deer ... don't want that dog to starve while snuggling the cats...;):)
