Default Neighbor Hunting Agreements?

Well, we are starting our search for a property to hunt, shoot, ATV, etc. Wont be our primary due to us wanting to keep kids in a good school system. Katy doesn’t have many 50+ acres tracts for sale haha.

Question for the GS: have any of y’all approached neighbors to start an agreed upon deer mgmt program? My goal is to avoid the neighbor that shoots everything with antlers by working together and educating them and learning them how to age... maybe even a protein program. We’d be talking 50-100 acre properties where I’ve been looking recently. Seems like a tall task so lookin for experience/advice.

It sure can’t hurt. You will know after meeting the potential neighbors if they are management minded or not. Even still there’s nothing to keep you or them from shooting whatever y’all want.

Yeah, exactly. No laws other than county tag limits, but they can still bring their daughters, sons, uncles, etc. to kill every decent young buck in the area. Pretty much the reason we’ll keep our large acre lease is to avoid folks like this for hunting purposes and maybe just cross our fingers for the property regarding whitetail...

Good luck. I've had no luck with this and have tried for four years. My neighbors shoot lots of 3.5 and 4.5 year olds. I have never seen a 5.5+ year old deer while hunting in four years. Sad to say but when my parents leave me the place someday I am selling and heading South to buy something with better hunting. I can't gripe though, if they're legal bucks it isn't any of my business what they shoot as it's their property. My neighbors appreciate the protein I feed though, LOL!

Sounds way too familiar. Funny that these guys think they’re shooting these super old mature bucks and you see pics and they’re 2.5-3.5 year olds (with loads of potential). Just part of it I guess...

We are also looking further away from the city, as well. South and West.

Maybe don't lead with that. Feel them out first.

But yes, if they're about killing good deer they'll agree to at least something. great response where I live, but I only have a couple of neighbors.

You aren’t gonna take a Supremacist view of game management and when lil Jimmy shoots his first little buck, make him feel bad about it instead of congratulate him are you ?

Managing for what is the question. Animals seem to be managing themselves just fine especially if you are just a yearling meat hunter.

At that amount of acreage just enjoy being outdoors. Otherwise you're going to wear yourself out being worried about what the neighbor just shot or how they're enjoying their own property.

Family time outdoors shooting and riding 4 wheelers is fun enough. Hunting would be the cherry on top.

Peterp, I love you brother but I have this uncle. And I shoot every year old antler-less deer (balls or not) just to spite him. Might not sound like much but if you multiply 1 antler-less deer per day for the state I do this in, some years its over 70 deer.

The craziest part is I think it contributed to better bucks for the youngins.

Maybe feel them out brother

I have met several neighbors. a few of us on TBH hunt close together and talk. I don't think we see many of the same deer, but we talk all the time about fawn crops, rain, and general conditions. We share some photos. It's nice to see what someone else has as a 4 year old.. 5 year old, 6... 7.. etc.

never hurts to know your neighbors.

We've been fortunate that at least one neighbor was conservation minded and together we've started to influence our other neighbors. It took a couple of years for our family to be accepted by the other established landowners and we've worked towards building friendships.

Best place I ever hunted was 15 acres. Surrounded by exactly what you describe. Lots of activity and lots of surprises opening weekend. Buy your piece if heaven. Do on that piece as you feel. And do not attempt to govern the neighbors.

Good luck. Got a new neighbor last year. I talked with him about trying to manage deer to their full potential. I have been feeding for years and showed them pictures of two 4.5 ( a ten and twelve pointer with kickers ) year old deer that would definately been exceptional bucks in another two years. They killed both bucks the first time they saw them.

Wouldn't hurt to feel them out. Either way, don't waste the effort trying to "educate" them. More often than not you'll come across as mr elitist horn hunter, and that just ticks people off. I hunt 50 ac, and any "management" you do means nothing unless you get a bunch of property involved, not enough worth having a bad relationship with the neighbors.

It always goes well when people from the city buy rural property and want to tell the locals what to do on theirs. Buying land in a co-op would be your best bet. We’ve got some in our area that have 50 acres and think they own thousands.

Bought two different places in the last 10 years under 100 acres. I just made sure my neighbor properties were much, much larger and I had permanent water. Run feeders year 'round and that keeps enough on my property to feed a small army.

If you are on a lease and one gun is hunting 3-400 acres and you move to a situation where it is one gun (probably more) per 50 acres than imagine a 4k acre lease with well over 100 guns on it. There just isnt a scenario where you can properly manage that unless a lot of your neighbors are not hunting. It could be done but basically you would have to get around 100 neighbors to stop hunting for 4 years to get maturity built up. Then due to population density per acre of that area the majority of hunters would have to agree to not take any deer at all most years so that only mature bucks are harvested. a 4k area is not going to produce year to year 100 plus mature bucks. 40 acres per buck is just not going to happen with free range wild deer.

If you are going to have small acreage you need a feeder source for animals. State and National Forests, 2-5 acre tract neighborhoods, golf courses, and major water ways. Buy along this or forget about mature deer.

I'm not saying your intentions are not good, but the optics of some guy from Katy buying 50 acres next to me to shoot and ATV around on all off-season, then trying to talk about deer management is not great. I don't think you intend to have a condescending tone so many of the comments you are getting here may be unwarranted. My best advice would be to get to know your neighbors and what their hunting goals are. If you think that can mesh with yours then great. If not just communicate what you intend to do and hope they join in with your vision at some point. We have a neighbor with completely different goals but we maintain a great relationship regardless. Over the years he has adopted some of our mindset.

All that being said, 50-100 acres is nearly impossible to manage unless you have large neighbors doing the same. Good luck and just try to have realistic expectations with whatever land you buy. Good luck.

You could try to get them to join a management Coop, but unless every property around you is on board its basically futile. We have neighbors that "agree" to only take mature bucks, but when a 140" 3 or 4 year old jumps the fence they lose their minds and can't pull the trigger fast enough. We still get a few that make it every year, so I can't complain too much, but I'd love to see what it would be like if they all made it to maturity.

Ive tried more than once with zero luck. People have their own ideas and are going to do what they want. My neighbors consist of "i aint never shot a doe in my life", "we come up at thanksgiving and christmas and "manage" to get a few", "we shoot anything outside the ears", and "screw them antler restrictions, I dont shoot nothing unless its a B&C or one of those "messed up bucks". I'm thinking the last guy is the culprit to why we have nothing but a ton of generic 8 points. People will rationalize whatever is needed to do what the want.

I have 130 acres. My neighbors have about the same with a few much larger tracts. We are behind a gate and are all friends.
We got with one another and have about 80% on board with a good program. It's worked out great.

Had 3 axis show up, and now it's around 50 a few years later. We all agree to let them walk for a few years. So it can work. Most land owners want what's best for the herd and property from what I can see.

I’ve seen some of the biggest bucks 25 yards behind the dumpster at quick marts, industrial areas, ball fields, and other places where nobody hunts. So management ain’t got as much to do with things as the Supremacist thinks.

You want that big buck, don’t be there and when you are there you ain’t there.

Oh wait, does management mean hunting over a corn feeder ?

Deer can manage themselves but you gotta manage to take one on their terms.

Not gonna lie, if i buy a place and my new neighbor stops by to explain or suggest "our" new management strategy and to show me pics of the bucks I should "let go for a couple of years", I'm probably shooting them at first sight on basic principle, especially if they're nice bucks.
