Simply got tired of hunting public lands here. Too many retards running around with guns. Thought about a lease but they're getting ridiculously priced here anymore. I live in a perfect location, just have to plant enough feed plot to draw the deer in. Everyone here feeds corn come hunting season, if you don't put in a decent feed plot, they don't come to you. They eat corn everywhere else, and eat yours after dark.Looks like you have a good thing going there!
Feeding year round, you hold a few does, keep the bachelor bucks hanging out. Great for early season before they all start moving, and the acorns drop. Also draws a few bigger bucks when they start rutting because you have resident does.
Built a nice stand; fully enclosed, insulated, carpeted throughout to deaden sound, windows, shutters, comfy reclining office chair in it. If I want to spend the night out there waiting on pigs, I simply close the windows and kick back. Battery powered fan when it's warm out, propane heater when cold, Thermacell to keep the bugs out. Hunt out of it year round when pigs show up, waiting on them can be an all night affair, and I'm too old to perch on a tree branch all night. Cut the trees, ground the stumps, and now have fun playing with it all year round.
