Thanks for the thoughts....I, personally have not asked him, but my dad said that he has 'hinted' it around, to be honest I am not sure if he has even done that.....the thing with the family coming down to hunt is the ONLY excuse they have....as to why exactly I cannot go hunting out there is beyond me, I have already 'proved myself' by taking the an 8 point last year (my first deer) with my other Grandfather, it was a good hit, the buck ran only about 40-55 yards before colapseing.....they support me and everything but when it comes time to actually asking to go they pretty much shut down and never give me an answer...I tend to get kinda emotional about this so I have pretty much stopped asking since last year when it really became clear that I can only 'look'. But I can look forward to going with my other Grandfather this year, so it's not all bad.

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

Here's the new plan, ETD puts out a notice which ever grandpa you shoot the biggest buck with will receive ......... you fill in the blank. Make it special to really put the pressure on. Or, maybe a good sit down face to face meeting with grandpa telling him how special it would make you feel by alowing you to hunt his property. You know one of those grampa/grandaughter things moments. You go into the meeting not backing down till he says ok. You can do it! You might drop the remark about, "you know about that 8pt I shot with grampa"..... He will give in, ETD use the force! Don't let him turn to the dark side.

ETD, even if you can't hunt there and apparently noone else can either, take the time to learn by watching those big bucks. It'll help you down the road.....

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

ETD, If Grandpa gives you permission "buckfever" will send him a couple of jars of homemade peach jam,,,
well along with that, I'll send him a Pint of Vermont Maple Syrup.
How can any man refuse such a deal???
