You're may be the only one that can hunt, but we all like to eat.

I hear that, I still have a freezer full of meat we are going to have to get busy to finish it up.

I wish I could take some hunters in that property, it needs more deer taken out than what I have been taking. The land owner is scared to death of being sued if someone gets hurt. I have tried to bring up a lease to have a small club with insurance but she is paranoid about law suits so I dropped it not wanting to press her. I have taken 14 deer off there in the last two years and it's not had any effect on the herd that I can tell. Between the drought last year and the total loss of all the hard mast I have been worried about the deer making it. The browse line is as bad as I have ever seen but on the positive side there is a lot of browse available because there is so much old fields grown over.

I plan on taking a long time to get the bush hogging done I promised her, by just working on it a couple of hours one or two nights a week. That way I can get some cameras set up and start taking a census. I have a friend with the wildlife agency who is a wildlife biologist I am going to recruit to help figure out what needs to be done, if anything.
