    Gotta say I'm a lil, well a lot jealous. Without a doubt a nice piece of property. Thats a bummer about the drive but looks like the drive would be worth it. How many acres is it?

    youth sounds like you got the hunting bug LOL
    when I was your age I too was consumed with hunting, and all things that made up hunting
    spent hrs and hrs in local shops shooting, every chance I got
    the opened my own store to support my hobby even more
    and all the hunts every yr all over
    was a fun ride, good to be on if you ask me

    You might want to look into building a small cabin down there, or a small pop up camper
    as I know costs add up
    when I did my Ohio hunts I tried my best to make them be 7-10 day long trips to help off set the ling drives, and up my odds the most on tagging out!

    I rented a cabin, and ran me about 700+ per trip, and about that in gas
    the hunting lic was always my cheapest part to hunting out of state LOL
    But I am glad I took every trip I did
    heck if anything I wish I did more!

    OH yea, I'm at the bow shop every evening, even working some now. Get to go to the ATA show next year. Amazing how hunting brings you some of the best friends. Got pretty close to the three bow techs over the passed year, do a bunch of shooting and hunting together, some of my best friends already.

    Its only 25 acres, but it's a prime location. Butts up to the 170acre farm that we have permission to gun hunt (Where our giant group goes for deer camp every year) I was just lucky enough my grandpa came across this gentleman 15 years ago and when he passed away, I built a real close relationship with the owners and do a lot of trips in the summer to help out. He had guys come to him last year trying to pay to hunt, but its been 15 years now of him telling people, that I'm the only one aloud to hunt. I'm just riding this awesome wave until it comes to an end, just hope it's not for a while.

    I had planned on doing the whole pop up camper plan.

    oh boy got a new big daddy!!! I'm so pumped, two weeks until I will be in Athens hunting, might go down for Halloween if time permits. This buck though is from somewhere local to me, going to be tough to hunt it, but I'm going to give it a shot.

    Will say, I'm a big covert camera fan, but I went to cabelas the other weekend. They had these wildgames on sale for $40, so I figured why not. I'm pretty impressed, just curious to see how long it last.

    I got a wildgames innovation cam or two, due to price, and to be honest they too impressed me as well, fast wake up time, and decent pic's and flash
    I got just under 3 yrs out of first cam being out 24/7/365, when it just died for NO reason or lead up
    I contacted wildgames and they just said send it in, which I did and a few days later they sent me a new camera NO questions asked

    BUT They sent me a camera that was OLDER and less features than one I had, it was a cam from like 4 yrs earlier , out of production??
    I wasn't so happy, emailed them saying SO< and they just sent me another cam of the same model I had, ALSO outdated, but it was a decent cam and got 3 yrs out of it

    SO< I can say there customer service wasn't great but was very nice to get a new cam for free, when I know the one I had was WAY past warranty and they could have done NOTHING
    I ended up with 2 free cam's
    and this was this past summer too
    the cam's they sent me were cam's from 2012-13 era
    SO I gather they have a bunch of OLD cam's laying around they use for things like this LOL

    But again, for the price I paid for them
    I say a BIG thank you to them for making an effort other company's might not have done

    and good luck with getting one of them bucks too

    you might want to maybe try working out some agreement with that land owner too, for future deal, maybe a small rent to own if that is possible, all comes down to what the owner is willing to do and you can swing
    prime land doesn't have to be a TON of acre's

    My old spot in ohio was a patch of woods about 15 acres or so, and was awesome yr after yr, was just in the right spot
    MAN I miss that place a LOT now, was the one hunt I looked forward to every fall,
    but owner passed away and it got sold
    things happen???

    Well, I couldn't be any more bummed. Had planned on spending all weekend going after that buck. Got a call yesterday morning that he was hit by a truck and killed right by my spot. 176", just makes me sick.

    I was thinking about trying something like that, last year I had him to the point he was talking about giving me the part of the land I hunt since its so hilly he can't do anything with it. Building a good relationship with the kids, the daughter even sent me a message me thanking me for everything and how nice it looks.

    WOW.. that stinks about that buck getting hit by a car.! Thats always one of my fears. Specially up here in the Central/southern part of Maine. We have smaller tracks of land, and deer are in the road all the time.
    Up in Northern Maine, is a different story, some deer up there have never seen a car. More likely they see skidders and other logging equipment.

    youth that sucks, BUT think of tit this way, at least you know the story of WHAT happened to it
    FAR too many times over my yrs a GOOD buck I was after and just went MIA< with me holding out all season HOPING< to see it
    when it was already gone(most times poached)
    SO< hunting a ghost can be a worse deal LOL
    and don't forget, most times a when a BIG bucks leaves it core area a new dominant buck takes its place, as odds are he had the place HE wanted, and was the better place on that land to grow old like he was

    SO, still BIG bucks down in that area
    just watch and see what the cam';s show
    the rut is coming!

    I've already had two different bucks, although both small. The one I"m not sure whats wrong with it, like a tall spike on one side, something tiny split on the other side, and his face just looks goofy. Also had pictures of two button buck fawns. I'll be in Athens 7 days from today, be home in about a 11, so hopefully I'll have some new pictures to post (run 4 cameras down there). Hopefully better, I'll have a success story and pictures.
