Hey everyone, new to the area and new to hunting this type of terrain. Also new to bow hunting. I am mostly used to tree stands and hardwoods. I'm having a hard time predicting deer movement when there is such a thick low brush line. Also when does the rut usually start and peak in this area. Also how do I post photos lol. Any help would be appreciated.

Find a decent trail and set up 20 yds off it and throw corn. They will come to it. I like to find a trail weíre they cross the boundary fence and be 100+ yards in. Most deer movement seems to be early and late with deer coming to or from the private land. They do seem to show up from nowhere. Glance down for just a sec and look up and there is a deer. Pre rut starting now. Next week things should pick up and the peak is usually thanksgiving week

Main thing is try to stay away from where other people are hunting. The less traffic from humans, the better. Try to find where no one is, and set up there.

Yeah, I have a lot of time invested in area 5 at the moment. It was a gem until about 2 weeks ago when a guy set up a feeder within 100 meters from my blind struts through my shooting lanes with a cart during prime hours. There are also 2 guys that just showed up on area 5 on nov 3rd that are stealing things out of blinds. Check your stuff if you leave anything behind.

Gotta be tough if you hunt area 5.... haha.... but itís worth it though! Chain down anything you donít want to go missing. Do me a favor, go over to that feeder and snap some pictures and post them on here so we can check it out! And send aerial map of its location. GW where you at?

You on a computer or on the tapatalk app?

This is my tapatalk app screen... makes this forum crap so much easier.




On a computer it should look like this... that button allows you to attach pictures into your post.

Let me know.

They look like the see the camera and don't seem too concerned. Is there another entrance that someone could have come from to steal stuff? One that doesn't have a camera on it.

Canít be for certain but I think Iíve seen that skinnier guy in the front in area 8 several weeks back. Probably the same guy who stole my camera last year in area 8 cuz he knew right where my setup was

That's what gets me. I have another photo later on in the trail carrying my chairs and cushions away. They picked up a cheap pair of binos and a monocular that I keep in a small bag at another blind. I mean I'm only out like maybe 40 bucks. I'm not very upset. That's why I leave stuff that's expendable. Just thought other people should know that they are going through blinds. And they are dumb enough to look at a camera and take things out of a blind next to it. Those are the people I try to avoid while in an area you can shoot at things.

Unless you like hunting on public lands. Need is a bit of a strong word. Still better then the other option we had though so he got my vote.

Burger, sausage. Not to much jerky. I need to run to meat market and buy a pork roast. I mix chunks of pork with deer to make my sausage and burger.

Ok everyone be on alert, the blind thief has escalated to stealing entire blinds. We had a blind and chair stolen this morning less than 2 hours after leaving it to have lunch. Of course they went around the camera so we have no pics.
