another weekend with nothing to show

Thanksgiving weekend and not one deer in sight in 3 days. The deer keep moving through the property at night. I really need to find some more land that borders the property that I now hunt, which would give me a better chance to get a deer. This season has been a real downer. Coyotes all around, bobcats sneaking around the pond, and the farmer pulling his bales of hay early in the morning. Hopefully next weekend will be better, rifle season opens on the 3rd of December.

Sounds like some good varmit hunting. How big of a piece of ground are you hunting? They should be use to the farmer.

We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

The property is close to 200 acres, or that's my educated guess. The owner leases out the field to a farmer who uses the field for prairie hay. He will cut the hay and leave it baled until, he realizes that I'm out there hunting and then decides to come get a couple bales ever couple of days. I really can't ask the landowner to tell the guy to pull it all at once. The only thing good that all the feed fields are getting plowed under and the deer should start coming into my feeders now that the food has been plowed under. Wednesday opens rifle season, that should give me a better chace this weekend.

Keep after them, they are there somewhere. How long have you been hunting this property? I use to think activity by the farmers hurt the hunting but I don't anymore. Not here anyway. We have tons of agriculture and the deer don't seem to mind at all. It seems that when you make the descision to kill one they pick up on it....grins.

My thoughts exactly. get yourself a nice .223 and kill coyoties all summer :D

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
-John Stewart Mill

and do some late season deer scouting while your at it.after the seasons over who cares if you walk into his bedroom.follow all those trails to see where they go

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
