Four year quest to tag a mule deer off my place. Main draw was alfalfa.

2 years of passing this guy led to a buddy getting a 10 yard shot. Main draw was an acre of corn which the deer continued to visit after the corn was gone.

Great nephew (I am getting old) delivered a perfect 50 yard shot opening rifle season. I told him to tell his friends it was a two, twenty five yard shot (sounds like 225 when spoken out loud...)

An incredible season. So very much to be thankful for. Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The two whitetails were taken off a 100 acres that when looking from the road would appear as completely average or even below average hunting ground.

Where you can not see from the road, I have 6 separate food plots (1/2 acre clover, 1/2 acre chicory, 6 acres corn/brassica or soybeans/brassica - the mix is determined by how much free seed I have of each, 1/2 acre clover, and 1/2 acre chicory). These plots total about 8 acres. I buy my clover, chicory and brassica seeds from Grandpa Rays. The corn and soybeans I get free leftover partial bags from area farmers. In August, I always hand broadcast a brassica mix (Rape, Winfred Brassica, Ethiopian cabbage, or Daikon radishes) into my standing corn and/or soybeans before a forecasted rain event. I want green leafy food available as many months of the year as possible, but especially I want it available in the fall when the neighboring properties do not have any green left. I personally believe having the food variety/plots is a huge draw.

There is approximately 20 acres of trees (cedar, locust, elm) that we almost never enter. The remaining 70 acres is open pasture (no trees) that I run cattle on from May to October.

You sowed the seeds and reaped the rewards of your patients. Congratulation to you and your family. Great deer anywhere

Congrats on fulfilling your quest on the muley, Bruce. Ditto on the other deer, as well.

MacGyver would be proud of your plots! ;-)

We can't grow 5 plus acre field's of corn. Deer eat it off at a foot.
