I am in my last 10 minutes in the office before I go and give these guys another go! I got some good news that my neighboring land owner, the 1st pic, has got Otis on camera and did again last night. He is from out of state and will most likely not hunt the rest of the year. The other pic is from a new comer that just appeared so we will see what happens. With a low of 22 tonight I hope it gets them on their feet to move Good luck everyone!

Good luck. I have high hopes that you will introduce Otis or his Daddy to their maker during this cold snap. They should be hitting the food plots hard.

As fate would have it I attended the party and he did not! Looking forward to getting back in the stand Thursday and being off until the 8th so we will see if he has the staying power to finish out the year! The food supply is gone so the food plots and feeders should be picking up! Huge cold front coming after Thursday, bringing temps below 20 so they are going to need to find a food source. Will advise once I get back in the saddle! Good luck everyone!

Merry Christmas to you and yours as well RWC! Not sure if he needs a land sitter, but he might as well consider it! He is never there!

Thanks for following along! Both my last place and the new one are located in Pittsburg County! What do I do? If you are inquiring about occupation I handle emergency communications for a federal agency, so if you had to place it in a field it would be in Telecommunications. You do not have to be independently wealthy or a trust fund baby to do this! All it takes is a dream and the discipline to make it happen!

Thanks everyone, about ready to have another go at them. Getting and staying really cold now so that has them up and moving. Seeing a lot of activity with 10+ deer a sit just not what we are looking for, but each sit brings a new opportunity! Will advise on status when I can! Good luck everyone

Well this season is a wrap! I didn't connect with any of my target bucks, but spent countless hours in the stand getting a feel for the new place. Since I closed in the July of last year it didn't give me much time for preparation. With the season now over that is all about to change! Looking for forward to getting the home place cleared and a barn put up to store the goods! Will update as we go along and congrats to all of those who connected this year

Looking forward to seeing all that you do with the new place!

If you ever need a strong mind and a weak back for help just let me know

Well, here we go! Got the clearing and leveling started for the future barn and cabin. It is going to be around 2 acres to clear and level and with the large rocks and trees it has already broke the dozer once, but should have it licked by the end of the week. Putting in a contract to get in line for a 30X60X12 barn with slab and electric. Timeline is looking to be 13 weeks or a little over to begin construction. Looking forward to getting a new tool shed cause this hauling stuff back and forth is getting old

I finally got the land cleared and the pad level for my new 30X60X12 shop with a 10X10 skinning shed on the end! Looking forward to skinning deer out in the future while they are hanging under lights! The builder is 10-12 weeks out before he can start which will give the pad plenty of time to settle before we break ground.
