If that's from the area you are going to be getting into I would sleep in the doghouse and on the couch or whatever it takes.

wowsers!! Great deer.

I dont like the pay to hunt either but if you are on a lease you know the other guys your hunting with, you can manage the land however you want because of fewer hunters.

I know quite a few folks that lease land in Kentucky for around $15 an acre and then they have to waste vacation days and drive forever just to hunt it. I would rather pay more money and not have to drive so far to hunt.

If I had Oklahoma deer land close to me that produced good deer I dont think I would have an issue with paying for it if thats what I wanted.

You can always move to TN and pay $5 an acre!!

Yeah, I ended up leasing this by myself. I had a couple buddies I was considering sharing it with, but decided against that. Kinda disappointed them, but I think it is better this way so I can control the pressure. I told them I could still take them out for a weekend sometime, and I think that helped. Of course it cost me three times as much money...but I think I will have three times the chance to kill a giant this way.

I spent my first day on the place on saturday. After looking the place over a little more I found a spot where four heavy trails came together and set up my ground blind there and also put a trail camera nearby. I sat there all afternoon and evening. I saw a couple small bucks, and one bigger buck at nearly dark, but the big one was well out of range. I couldn't tell much about the rack, but his body size was impressive. I think I may need to get a tripod stand as the trees where I want my stand are too small to hang one. I think if I was up a little higher I may be able to see more of the brushy area that I am hunting. The wind switched halfway through the evening, and it was too late to move, so I just sat it out. Ended up being a bad idea because I heard one blow directly downwind after the switch. Maybe next weekend the wind will be better. It was blowing a steady 20 with gusts up to 30 on saturday.

sounds good just get it in writing that your hunting the property exclusivly otherwise who knows how many people hes leasing to

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
