I've got a ton of does around my stand, and have seen a GREAT 8pt walking around the area, but haven't figured out where he goes. Every time I see him, he is walking on the road, but when he runs off, he always goes into the neighbors field and disappears. I set up my stand directly accross from the path I know it goes on in his field...so I'm hoping I can call it across the road and get it...but I haven't ever caught it on the game camera.
My neighbor baits all year round, so he literally has every buck in the whole area...we have had cameras up all year, all over, and we haven't caught one buck on camera...not one...I don't care if it is just a little spike...nothing. So, he has them all, but we're hoping that if they can survive until Mid-late October...maybe we'll be able to call one over the road and connect.
Then in mid-October, I'm going up to Northern MN, and hunting my uncle's land...and he has a few 6 and 8 points up there, so I can guarentee you that I get one of those guys.
So, I am confident I'll get 2 deer this year, but it might be one buck and one doe....we'll have to see. My shoulder got really screwed up, but it is good enough to get the deer in the freezer, but then I think it will be a while till I shoot again.
Good luck team!
