So I'm sitting in my ground blind right now hunting with my son for his first time. This is a new lease, and I had to kinda overpay considering when I got it. It's only 55 acres. When I talked to the landowner he said he does run cows but not here during season. Well we are walking to the stand and keep seeing cow [censored]. Then we see 3 or 4 cows. Scared the crap outta my son, luckily I got him shut up quick. I haven't checked all the feeders yet to see if there's damage. But should I be pissed that he's running em here now?

I suggest erring on the side of giving the owner a heads up.

I have cattle that run on the adjacent property that frequently get on my ranch. Since I know he gets paid by the pound I know one loss kind of hits his bottom line.

Same with your situation. Since he knows you will be shooting I doubt he would intentionally put his cattle in harms way. Cattle prices being stupid high right now.

A rancher showed me the receipt from his sale of two calves last week. I couldn't believe what he got for them.

I would ask the landowner since he might not know the cows broke in on the place if they are not his. If you have not had rain in a while, he might be forced to graze the place in need of grass for cattle. Deer will get used to cattle once they are in place for a while. Good luck on your weekend hunt.

I would ask him about it. If they aren't his he can fix it, if they are his you can remind him of your conversation and the money you have paid.

Well the update is they are not his cows. I texted him and just let him know they were out there, had emptied 600# of corn and screwed up one feeder. Luckily I have cams and saw the brands on the cows. He said he's gonna call around. I don't mind the cows if I'm prepared and have made a pen. But I hadn't since he wasn't going to run em. So I'm out some leg pieces on a feeder, spin plate on another, and a bunch of corn. And apparently I'm putting up pens next weekend.

If it helps any I am 400 lbs and strong as a tank but I am still afraid of cows lol. I have always hunted places with cattle and my dad made fun of me and still does about it but hey I am afraid of the dark too.


I eat everything I kill and I am to fat to be a bad hunter.
