Default First age and score for me in years!!

Been busy building a house and working, I have only hunted a few times in the last couple years. Long story short this buck shows up Friday morning while wife was getting ready for work. Bought some cameras Saturday and put them out on feeder thatís 100 yards west of our house in our front yard. Last night at 6:45 he shows up and stays for 20 minutes. I donít want to hunt right on feeder (wife said I canít) so I want to hunt farther north from where Iím assuming heís coming, up an old logging road parallel to our west property line. Any ideas on where to hang my climber? Yellow circle is feeder, house on top to right is MIL, and house below that is ours. Green line marks old logging road, and red is property line. Hereís pics of him too. Came back at 2 am this morning. My best guess on age and score is 3 1/2, and 115Ē. What say the green screen?

Very unlikely that deer is a 3yo.

Set up on that feeder and just hide your tree stand from the boss.

Gonna be hard to do since this feeder is 100 yards visible from my front door lol. Iíll see what I can do. Got a climber. May need to relocate a lock on.

I say this with all due respect.

Tell your wife to let you worry about the hunting and gathering.

Agree.

And there's just some places a man has to take a stand.

UPDATE:

This buck has gone full nocturnal I believe. Here is a timeline of when heís showed up to this feeder at my house:

Visible sightings: last Tuesday morning, Friday morning, Sunday evening 6:45 pm (camera was out for this one).

Monday morning 2 am
Tuesday morning 12:20 am
Wednesday morning 6 am
Thursday morning 2:30 am

Looks to be coming from either east of here last couple of days, from the north at the live sighting Sunday. I know itís been stupid hot. I hunted 90 yards off the feeder north on a trail Monday and Tuesday evening, and hunted way back in the back on my place last night. Thinking I may need to back out until maybe Saturday once it cools off. Any advice?

Hereís a pic for reference for stands.

Blue x is the feeder, x just north of there is where I hunted Monday and Tuesday. Last night hunted up in the boot top left corner of pic. Havenít hunted hard in years, so I donít think Iíve stunk up the place yet, and Iím trying to be mindful of wind.

You have a great moon. Maybe wait for a temp change? Personally, with the limited info, I think he is bedding somewhere very close to you. You could be pushing him out when going into your hunting area.

I would try to enter from a different direction...OR...I would start walking back there hand corning every day or every other day in your hunting area. Associate the activity and smell with food. The closer we get to winter, the more hungry he will get.

Not sure if this helps, but 15-17 mins or so before he was on My camera, I caught him in the middle of our county road in Pic at the top right point. Bottom left point is feeder. 0.85 miles traveled on that time frame. Iím 96% sure it was same buck. Not sure if this helps but hereís some more info.

Can you move the feeder to where you can hunt it?

Havenít hunted much over weekend. Was too busy. And he hasnít come by since early Thursday morning. He was at my feeder from 10:15-10:30 this morning just now. Always coming in on some type of east wind (NE today). I think he may be coming from the west now? Anyone care to chime in? I was worried he was killed over the weekend but apparently lot.
