Found out today that I lost my best deer farm. While I havent killed a buck on the place it was the only consistent big buck spot I had. All of these pics came from it over the last few years. I pulled my cam today and prayed the whole time thta there wouldnt be a big buck on it. I can't even get to sleep for thinking about it. It looks like I'm gonna get into the leasing game.

I missed this stud last october just a few days after that scrape photo was taken. A week later my best friend shot him but didnt kill him. I had pics of him in '10 and '11 and can only assume he lived through the winter.

I had this big 9 point in my crosshairs 2 years ago during early ML but my camera man didnt have enough light to film. The big nontyp was never seen and both disappeared by dec never to be seen again. I had pics of both in '09 and '10.

I'm living the dream too, Dave. Mrdux and I pulled 5 stands yesterday and are on the hunt for a place ourselves.

With the owners permission... I hunt the backside of an industrial park, about 250 acres, that stalled in development. I may have to vote for Obama because when the ecomony picks back up my wildlife mecca will be turned into factories and parking lots.

It always seems that the land owners that have permitted me to hunt over the years have been near death at the time I meet them. I have lost 5 great farms from old men passing away and the land being sold/inherited. My honey hole in Johnson county, the land owner died day before. The widow is adamant about me coming in and taking care of the "Garden destroyers" as she calls them. So hopefully I've got a few more good years in the honey hold. Always pays to have a 2nd or 3rd backup property. I just picked up 200 acres in Pike county that is loaded with sign, gated, and has 15 big bottoms which is rare for this part of the state. Found a really nice shed there yesterday + 6 ticks and a few snakes. The landowner of the new property owns the company I work for.
