    I agree gravdigger, here in Ohio one could hunt a lifetime and not get a bow shot on a 170 class deer much less a 200 class. We can take up to six deer legally, but I see no reason for me and my wife to need six deer we are still eating the deer I shot in September. I always hope to get a shot at a doe for the freezer first so I can try to get a shot at a larger buck during the season, but not all things work as planned. I will always follow the game laws and legally hunt within my states guidelines, and never take more then what I can consume. To me I have problems with those that take more then what they can consume and do not do it in a legal manner.

    Hi dz, yep if the folks that have property next to you are shooting game on your families property without written permission that is poaching. As a matter of fact in Ohio they would need to have your permission to retrieve an animal shot on their property that ran onto another owners property. In Ohio feeders and food plots are legal on your own private property, but not on public land. My parents own a small wood plot that I have a couple stands on the owner of the larger woods around my parents land is owned by a person in the housing addition. I have written permission to not only hunt on the surrounding woods, but also be on it to retrieve any deer that runs onto his property that I shoot from one of my stands. He has stands in his woods that he hunts so I limit myself to the stands on my families property, but I also have given him an open offer to use my stands if I am not hunting them. He also has written permission to get any deer he takes that runs onto our property and has used to get a doe he shot a couple seasons ago. The people that are taking game on your property need a visit from a game warden it sounds like to me.

This time was an exception, but was still a mature legal buck

    Thanks Dz. I knew there was a good story there. No matter what you do, you can't control your neighbors. I hate shenanigans like those you mentioned.
