I love finding new "feed trees" (preferred over other oaks). Got a lot of cleaning up around this one. 4+ deer fed here for 45 minutes. Could only see legs @ 20 yards. Came out to plot later but decided to observe & I'm glad I did. ➡️ would have missed seeing him. Got to 42 y & broadside but Let him eat while does were feeding at 25...love that they're enjoying plot I've worked on all year. I was hoping the 2 bigger deer he ran with all summer would show. #growingdeer#learning#deerhunting#timeoutdoors#redmoon
I spent a lot of time dreaming and wishing to encounter this deer.
I recently found out the reason I haven’t had pictures of him since last November was because he was taken on a neighboring property.
I am contemplating getting rid of game cameras for deer and reverting to HOPE with imagination.
Any guess on age? Im on the fence with this one. My best guess 3. He has become a regular and tonight he came out at 54 yards and drug my number one shooter (video) behind him. 😳30 mins later at 32 yards I came to full draw, but it was just two damn dark to shoot. I then had to put the #jarhead brain in and #recon my ass back to the house as the field between me and the house became full off deer. Finally felt the fire again tonight. Its a whole new feeling of accomplishment when you #farmforwildlife . Just seeing bucks and all those deer in what used to be barren, over grazed cattle pasture and now smashing the @eagleseedco #beans and #wheat was a successful season already. Next two days are going to be killllllller. #growingdeer#gamekeeper
This picture represents 1.25 years, over 4000 existing christmas trees, over 178 new #whitetail trees planted, 2 acres of @eagleseedco #beans , 2 acres of their #broadside , 1 acre of their wheat, 1 acre of “three sisters plus peas” (beans, corns, squash, and peas, a #nativeamerican planting technique), a newly made water hole, miles of electric fence wire removed, couple hundred fence posts pulled by chain, and one failed attempt at growing clover. Its not about the kill its about what goes into it. Thats what makes the mistakes hurt enough so you never make them again. #growingdeer#gamekeeper#qdma#farmingforwildlife
2018 Test Plot Update!!! I went back to my pictures to give you a timelapse. about 1 month ago the test plot was 6-8 foot tall weeds like it is every summer.. mowed , disced it and planted it. about a month has gone by and it is full of clover, turnips and sugar beats some areas are thinner then others, and we have a majority of the plot in the 15 inch high range. cant complain with the lack of rain..... #foodplot#kansas#bigbucks#growingdeer#landmanagement#HDpredatorcontrol#polarissportsman#builtnotbought
The buck I call skinny is back and hitting the food plot every night. I have a few daylight pictures of him and he seems to have a pattern. It's nice to see him back and bigger this year. I'll be honest, he is bigger than I've ever killed so he will make a nice notch on the belt and nice first buck with a bow and first buck on out new land.
