    New property , whole new game

    They say, good things come to those who wait. Haven't had much to say without a place to hunt. I finally scored a big plot down in hill country part of Ohio.

    I am used to hunting field edges and small wood lots. Big woods, hollers and ridges are a new game for me. Can't wait to scout it out. I know there are big deer in the area having hunted an adjacent property. One was a 140+ piebald that made it through last season. Mostly nocturnal so it will be tough.

    Good for you. Trying to put all the pieces together on the new property will be a new adventure for you. Get those trail cameras out and show us the herd. Good luck this coming season.
    I may be opinionated...but, my opinion is the only one that matters anyway.

    Great to hear! It took me a while to learn how to hunt similar land down at our farm. Made a lot of mistakes and also learned the terrain sure dictates their movement. Sounds like a great piece of land and I wish you the best on it!!
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    Nice to hear from you again 4arms, I've been asking everyone if they ever hear from you, good luck on the new property, you are in for a different experience for sure, those hollers and ridges make it challenging for sure. Check back often.

But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    Thanks fellas. Hunting has been tough the last couple years. Given the property is a 2hr drive from me that will create its own set of challenges.

    I also have open access to clear trails, put in food plots etc. Weather permitting I am planning to spend this coming weekend to scout stand sites and access points. There are others that hunt the parcel but with more than 500 acres there plenty of room. Just two of us are bow hunters though.

    Have any of you ride your machines into a property and camp over night to deer hunt.?
