Depending on your perspective, the cup could be half full...sounds like you just got a free high fence around your place. confused2

Your feeder is 50 yards from his property line.
You have shot 2 bucks last year and two this year and doe, on 56 acres.

I apologize, feeder is not 50 yards from his property line. Feeder is 200yds+
Stand is 50 yds from property line with thick brush between stand and fence.

Again, we are covered up with bucks, young and mature. I see 15+ doe and 2-3 different bucks each time I go out.
Two of the 3 neighboring properties are not hunted.

Right depends on where the deer were primarily being drawn in from, the to be high fenced area or the other direction ranches and if the prior landowner is right about all of the other neighbors being aligned against them, they could be completely high fenced in eventually and that would suck..

56 acres and you've already taken 3 deer this year with plans to take several more? I'd be temped to high fence you in as well. Hamilton has decent deer numbers, but at that rate youre on course to shoot out the area in a couple seasons. Frankly you should feel blessed to take a deer a year on such a small parcel. But resorting to hunter harassment techniques is not cool on his part. Just build a fence.

Not knowing the numbers out there but hearing abundant, I will not question the poster. The landowner was likely well aware that the property would be hunted when he sold it so kind of bogus on his part assuming the bucks were mature and abundant deer out that way. Taking two mature bucks a season and a doe don't sound like more than the area can tolerate if all is being told on the up and up.

I never said there were plans to shoot several more. I stated there were several more mature and past mature bucks as well as some that needed to be culled. I never said that was going to happen this season.

Granted, if i was sitting in the stand and the Big 8 I passed on opening weekend were to step out, he'd be added to the list.

Sounds like the previous land owner has spent the money and didn't expect your aunt and uncle to actually use the place. Idiots are everywhere.

4 mature bucks in 2 years and still hunting for more on 56 acres? You might be "that" neighbor

Maybe/maybe not, would be somewhat interesting to know what kind of conversations transpired during the property sale around discussions of property usage, hunting expectations and anticipated usage and frequency, etc. and if the prior landowner gave off any signals one way or another. As Creek said, could just be a guy that didn't expect or hope that the buyer would use much if at all, especially if that was potentially communicated during the land sale. Anything else outside of being there is purely speculative now.

Sounds like your 56 acres is funding his high fence. Nobody talks to anybody anymore

He could be, but all 56 acre tracts aren't created equal.

I am not knocking the OP, I am just looking at it through the neighbors eyes (not a bad idea for the OP either).
The land may be plentiful in deer, but even at the best, 56 acres is likely not going to support shooting 2 trophy bucks a year, and probably more to come. You are shooting deer what the surrounding land owners have created by low hunting pressure. So clearly the neighbor sees new hunting pressure as a threat.
Just something to think about.

Yup, usually two sides to every argument...
