I hunt on 100 acres that my wife's grandmother owns. A friend of my wife's cousin has a cattle lease on the property. But for the last 2 years, he hasn't used it. This year, 2 weeks before season, he put 20 or so cows on it. Not only have they broken a feeder, and the mounting hardware on my game camera, but every time I hunt, they are close by. Every time I get here, they are up by the gate, and they follow me to my part of the property. Today I decided to go sit in the brushier area of the place, and they followed me in there, and started eating every kernel of corn I put down. So I went back to my blind. I can currently count 14 cows standing in the field my blind overlooks. I've seen a couple of deer this season, but only on the very rare occasions the cows aren't close by. A feeder pen won't help, my feeder is currently broken anyways, so there isn't any corn on the ground. This is making deer season a lot less enjoyable this year. Rant over.
