Exclamation Hunters Only

New pictures from the scouting camera. As of today. Bow season opened yesterday, but temps this week are in the mid to upper 80's. I will wait for a cold front to come through before hunting!

Looks like you have a good spot staked out. Are you hunting private or public land? I head out for NW Colorado and my deer hunt on Oct 20. I have a buck tag and a doe tag so I'll get some meat put away. Archery Elk is over here in Colorado so the only thing I'll be shooting at with a bow is 3D targets for a while. I shoot competition 3D to stay sharp for the Archery season. Griz

This is a privately owned 900 acre tract. We are signed up on the forestry commission program, where they planted 450 acres of hardwoods this past spring. The trees are about 2 feet tall right now. In about 5 years this is going to be an awesome place to hunt! Most of the land was agricultural until we did that. There is about 50 acres of pine as well as a section of wetlands conservation acreage. (We have several small lakes on the property) It also backs up on the Cache River National Wildlife Refuge. Most of the guys who own the land live outside of Arkansas. They are primarily interested in the duck hunting on the property. They may come once a year for deer hunting. This leaves about a half a dozen of us to deer hunt during most of the season. We put in 15 food plots in late spring, but the hot, dry summer burned most of them up! We are in the process of replanting about 10 plots now. Using Tecomate "monster mix" and "extreme" mixed together. Hope to have them planted by the first of next week. They should be ready by the beginning of the modern gun hunt in November. I also have a couple of plots that I plan to plant with alfa rack plus by "Whitetail Institute".
Archery season here runs from October 1 through February 28. Plenty of time to fill 3 tags. No more than 2 bucks. As I mentioned before, we have a rule on the club that you have to kill a doe before you can take a buck. I took a 9 point and a 6 point last year. But this year they must be 8 point or better.

Allright, I'm glad to see we have our own thread now. Let's dish out those good stories and relive a few good days past.

Sounds like your doing your homework on the suplimental feeding. In a few years you should be getting some monsters so long as there are mature deer alowed to grow to the 4-6 year old stage. Griz

Yeah, we are implementing QDM tactics. There are a LOT of deer on this property. I have seen a hundred deer in one soybean field on the property that adjoins ours. You will notice in the pictures that they have good genes. Nice racks on young and small bodied deer. Imagine what they will look like with a good nutrition program and some selective harvest!

There is a lot of land in The Natural State...Arkansas. Only problem is that they have discovered a natural gas reserve that is probably bigger than the one around Ft Worth, TX that supplies half the gas to the whole country. Land prices have skyrocketed and even if you can afford to buy it, most people are retaining mineral rights on the land they are selling.

in GA most people lease land from mead (the paper company) the own sooooo much land in georgia bc the pine trees grow so good here, so it works out really good for all of us hunters. just remeber D2BS, shoot plenty of does to keep the ratio's right and you're bucks will get bigger... i'd prolly let them 8's walk, at least for another yr or so

There are so many deer down there that we probably should only take does this year! I doubt if I could talk anyone into that, though. There are a few mature bucks around.

Deer Cain

Any of you guys (gals) used Deer Cain? I understand it is irresistable to deer. My question is, should you put it somewhere near your stand or in an area close, but not immediately around a feeder, ect. I understand from the little reading I have done on it that you get most of the deer in on it at night, but seldom see deer around it during the day.

Enlighten me.

deer cain is the bomb...... i use the liquid, a buddy of mine uses the big block of it ( similar to a salt lick)....... i'm not sure about when they come to it exactly, but it's pretty easy to use, just follow the directions on the back. we found a nice deer trail about 30yrds downhill from one of our stands and put it right off the side of that trail, that way it's in gun and bow range

I just bought a 4 lb block of the "time release" at Small-Mart. Thought I'd give it a try. I think I'll put it a little way away from my feeder and camera. I understand that you will end up with about a 16-18 inch deep hole about 4 ft across by the end of the year where you put it.

I just put mine in a hard case and throw it in the back. It doesn't move around much, because it kind of angles front to back across the space. By the time I have an ice chest and other stuff back there it's pretty secure from flying around. Oh, and when the deer goes back there too, it will pretty much fill up the space.

This thread has been quiet for a week. Whats happening or is every one hunting? I will be leaving friday for my deer hunt. I have a buck and a doe tag. Unfortunatly cow elk tags were sold out for this hunt but I may get one for the Dec hunt. I'll take pictures of the area and some of the 4 wheeling ops while out and about. I don't have my jeep back from the shop yet so I'll still be in the Chevy pick-up unless it sells in the next few days. Lets hear some hunting stories and don't forget the pictures. Griz

Arkansas licenses come with 4 deer tags and 4 turkey tags (two for fall and two for spring) They make you do your homework as to what you can take in any given area. Each deer zone has different limits. It makes you know the regs, but I like that they do it - because there is really a difference in the populations from the ozark mountains to the delta. The zone I hunt in is a 3 deer limit. 3 does, or up to two bucks. We got 2+ inches of rain today. Just finished replanting the food plots on Saturday. This should give them a good fast start. I'll be in the woods Wednesday. It kinda blows to have to work weekends, but my day off in the middle of the week puts me out there when not many other people are hunting.

we have a different license for turkey, then one for migratory bird, then another for small game....... each county in the state can set it's own regulations on the size of deer. most are the same. though, so it aint too hard to remember what you can and cant kill

In Colorado I buy a Combo small game - fishing license. Then big game is a tag per animal. It varies per area. I drew an Archery Elk tag and will buy a left over cow Elk tag for Dec. I also drew a Buck tag and bought a left over doe tag for the same area and hunt dates. Some tags are by limited area and some are good for the whole state excluding the limited areas. The limited areas are either better areas or are in need of more controled managment. It's confusing as hell! When I lived in Fla. We just bought a license and went where we wanted. The only thing we had to draw for was muzzleloader. Antelope here is the same as Deer and elk, area and date specific. For that matter so is Moose, Bear, Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goat and turkey. I'm not sure about mountain Lion. Our license pamphlet is about 20 pages long. Griz

Our conservation license includes small game and big game. The only permits you have to buy are for doe zone quota hunts, which gives you the priviledge of taking and extra doe in the zones that offer the permit. (by drawing) And if you are lucky enough to be drawn for an elk hunt. They only issue about twenty of these permits per year! If you duck hunt you of course have to buy a federal and state stamp.

Headed back to my Mom's farm in Minnesota next month. I am hoping i can slip away for a few hours or maybe days. She has about 400 acres that run the banks of the Mississippi At least I use to be quiet enough to sneak out when I was a teen.
