Went out this morning since it was cool and I have to work tonight. Caught this guy chasing a doe at daylight. Had to wait a few minutes to have enough light to confirm width and make sure he looked old enough, he stopped for the last time. Not a monster you may find on a high acreage place, but not to bad for a small 15 acre property with high surrounding pressure. My wife called him a "1k buck" LOL, about what I spend feeding the damn things every year. Anyway figured I post with the rest of you fellas, may make some feel much better about their buck grin BTW, Dude stunk worse than probably the last 20 I have taken!

The last photo is what I have to hunt, you can see the small food plot (most of it) and the improved grases closer to the stand in the trees. try to do as much land management as conducive to a little bitty place.

Let a legal 8 go yesterday am, he had nice mass, but squat length on the g's

Thanks guy's!
I love to take a deer, but it has always been more "funner" and rewarding working the land for them, that is where the hrs and real expense come in. Planting trees and shrubs, managing the browse (In the buck photos, you can probably notice where I disc spring strips to encourage low growth and forbs, the deer love theses spots and they find the acorns quicker). I guess for me, it is the whole package deal, even on a small place. I pull quite a few deer onto this tiny place and will now let them have it for a "safe zone"

BTW, When we bought this place in 2004, solid trees! saw 2 does the 1st year, the more I manage the land, the better the deer use it, we regularly have 6-15 now in our yard up That's what really makes hunting fun for me.

Thanks again
