Many thanks sir! That area is bow only and no baiting to!

I have a lot to do to get back to my previous lodging accommodations, but I just got the electric put in! One step at a time

Was able to go and do a little work today and decided to pull some cards to see if anything had been hitting my new feeder locations. They have only been out for a week, but that didn't seem to matter! Seems things are looking good This first batch is a protein feeder location on the backside of a new 3 acre pond on the dam end

This set of pics is from a stand location I have on the edge of a food plot that will be planted this year. I am really looking forward to spending a lot of time this year at this spot

The doe looks like she has warts but real healthy. I wouldn't mind her. On culling the yearling I would let him go he damaged himself probably causing the defect. With the deer you showed early on in the post I would worry about killing a target mature buck or 2 and manage the doe numbers and let all the deformed yearlings and trash bucks roll until maturity. Looks like you had one heck of a place congrats

Thanks, I was thinking that was it, but just wanted to confirm. Supposedly it is not a life threatening deal as long as it doesn't interfere with eating, sight, or breathing. Again, thanks for your input

After checking cards today I had a couple of new comers to the food plot stand on the hill. After reviewing other cards they are also frequent visitors to the protein feeder. Still a lot to do before the opener, but its getting there

The protein feeder had its share of visitors as well. I have learned a lot about deer movements at this location and will move in to put a lock on in a tree before the bachelor bucks break up if this type of regular attendance continues

Really nice looking place and deer, and as for the second cull question, if it was mine, He would go after I got one of the really nice mature bucks. You have a few to pick from.
Hope the best for the first season.

Had some beautiful weather today and decided to move a big stand. I wasn't sure how it was going to go, but things worked out fine! With a little bit of lane mowing this location should work out well

These two seem to be afternoon boy's cause they have a track record of leaving about 10 minutes before its light enough to shoot in the morning!

I agree, he looks older than the first one so I will give him some time to reverse course. Thanks for your input
