      This video is from my hunt last night. I started the video as soon as i got on stand because i knew that it was a pretty crazy place to set up. This is northern Michigan State land, after the gun pressure of 800 thousand gun hunters, and a place i would never think of hanging a tree stand. But i decided to “hunt where the sign told me” and it paid off.

      Fantastic! I’m going to set up 15′ from the front door now:D The suckers are in the bird feeders every day. Nice late season doe. Way to hang in there!

      Jason thanks another great piece of info and video.


      Let me know how that works out perhaps I can get Lin to lift sanctuary from the back yard 2 bucks and 5 does this afternoon on my stumping walk:shock: They don’t even wave their white tails at me.

      Thanks guys!

      I have the same issue here. We have up to 20 deer a night coming into our back yard where my wife feeds them a gallon or so corn a day. she only feeds them in the winter and loves watching them in the snow. I would never hunt these deer like this. But one has to questions driving 40 minutes to go sit in a tree in the 20 degree temps for hours hoping to see deer when I could just open the sliding door in my boxers and fill the freezer.

      Dont think I could ever feel good about doing that and would probably hang up my hunting if i ever wanted to. But its pretty funny when i walk in from hunting, frozen and empty handed, and my wife’s friends are at the house when i get there. They ask did you get anything? I say no didnt see anything. They laugh and say you could of killed 10 deer 10 feet off the back deck earlier! I just smile as i take off my 27 layers of clothes.

      Nice video. I wish some snow would fall up here for the weekend. I like tracking them in the snow in the extended season here.

      Congrats on the doe.
