7 shooters on 10 acres is impressive! I've got 100+ acres and 10 acres across the road. Just put up cameras on the 10 acre last week to see what's tucked away - I saw two shooters last year on it but never sat back there - It's fun to find a little honey hole like that, good luck!

can you hunt on 10 acres legally?
Archery Only?

Yep, as long as you're arrow or bullet doesn't cross the property line(then it's trespassing).

Yes sir. I only bow hunt so it makes everything easier. I havenít shot a deer with a rifle since 2011.

That's awesome. I grew up hinting a 6 acre tract surrounded by larger tracts. No quality deer back then, but quantity was always good. Our place was pretty much a pinch point for animals traveling north to south.

I have had similar experiences hunting small tracts, seeing bucks in bunches and then when the pre-rut begins, they aren't in bunches any longer, and often are unseen as well.

Hope that isn't the case with you, and hope you get a shot and knock him down!

All three of my best deer to date have come off a 10 acre tract of land that I owned. Sure hated to sell that place.

Great buck. Surprising sometimes how good a small piece of land can be.

My biggest bow buck came off a 5 acre property. Sad thing is there was a bigger one with him. Mine scored upper 130ís
