Hey y'all. Im new here, and new to hunting. Been outdoors and shooting my whole life. Just never had the opportunity to get seriously into hunting. Well I am starting to have some extra time and resources and am looking to start. My fiances dad has around 90 acres, and theyve hunted there in the past. They havent been hunting it real hard the last few years. Now, its just a big piece of property that everyone goes down and rides the four wheelers and shoots guns and has a good time. The property is mostly cedar, a little bottom area near a creek that has some big oaks and assorted trees. Not a lot of water on the property except right at the edge. I've run across sign, but every time I have gone out I've come up empty handed. I know some if not most of it is my lack of skills, but I also rarely see fresh sign and I have been all over that place. Seems more like a crossing point for animals in the area, they cut across a corner but they dont stick around long. At this point the property has people on it probably every couple months. Is there a way that I can improve the land and see an uptick in animals while still using the land for recreational property? It is split into two parcels, the smaller one is maybe 40 acres and the other is close to 60. The big parcel has a cabin and the trailers and is typically where everyone hangs out. The small piece has a little water, a couple out of commission feeders, and for the most part is left alone. Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice? Thanks all!

If there are deer in the area, all you need is a feeder and a place to sit. Deer like corn.

I set the feeders up last year, seemed like most of the corn wasnt getting eaten, but failed to get game cameras and put em ip. THE property is in the hamilton area.

Get some feeders going and put out a camera...which direction out of Hamilton?

Also I liked the ghost story, did someone get murdered in the house?

Yeah, I guess my bigger concern is even if I do what I need to do it won't make a difference with all the shenanigans that go on over there. And not that anybody knows of, but who knows!

But that's a good start, get cameras out and see who cones around. It's out towards purmela.

Put a feeder up on the smaller parcel that receives little human activity. You don't need to feed a lot of corn at first, just enough to get them coming. Don't be alarmed if there isn't a stampede. It's still early and there's plenty of natural groceries for the deer. As the season progresses you'll likely see more activity coming to corn. When you go out hunting hand toss corn around the area. Good luck.

Paint the border fence posts PURPLE, to indicate that the property is Posted as PRIVATE. Paint mebbe every 3rd/4th post, as long as you can see the last painted post. Be sure to tell the Sheriff that too, to give him an incentive to check the property for trespassers.
