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.
