    Default Backyard Visitors

    Been having these guys show up pretty regularly lately. Hoping to do a little grooming to that area and make a few sits this coming season ... oh yeah less than 40 yards from the corner of the house, 41 from the back steps. I could put up a blind on the roof of my porch and be good to go.

    Wow, I counted 6, and so close to the road too. I am getting excited about deer season just looking at that video. Thanks!

    Get an average of 12-16 in the field on the other side of the house pretty regularly lately as well. Have had the dog bust out 5 when letting him out in the morning in this same area. Kicked a group out the other morning when I came home late from being out with my brother. They like to bed right under that tree.

    Cool video. One thing I have never done is hunt my own property. I like watching them too much to risk scaring them off. Have had several times when I could make a 20 yard shot out the back door on deer though. lol

    Are you allowed to bait or feed the deer in your state? If so, you can increase your 'in the yard' deer by setting up a PVC corn feeder, or use one of the 5 gallon bucket timer operated feeders that I see every year at Wally World for about 10 bucks. Couple advantages with those, saves you corn, more deer eating less corn, dispersal can be set for duration and at your best times. Deer will adjust to whatever time you set the table for them.
    I ran a test using a PVC feeder, made mine L shaped, and cut a trough at the bottom. A deer would stick it's nose into the trough and eat till the corn was gone, while other deer stood waiting to graze. Made the economy PVC feeder rather expencive, could go through 50#s in a week easily. But had a lot of deer in the yard, area looked like a feed lot after a month.

    No baiting in IL - no "feeding" either. But I can't control them if I plant vegetation on my property that they happen to snack on. That is how I see it.
