I say this in the nicest way... I hate you guys...  Where I get to hunt taking a 4 point would be a FANTASTIC day. Taking one of those might might cause me some cardiac arrest....

Trust me I do honestly feel your pain. I’ve  hunted a place like that for many years before I found this place. Over the last 4 or 5 years I stopped fighting the “if I don’t shoot it the neighbors will” and started letting bucks walk that I never would have before. It was a small property but private. Bucks started growing and I was amazed at what a couple years did for them. It still has the same neighbors with the same methodology but I still let the bucks with potential walk and if they get them, I did my part to let them grow. Many (and I mean MANY) days I’d sit out there and not see hardly anything or zero deer. But it was a funnel and eventually bucks made their way in. The place I have now is a blessing and I don’t take one second of it for granted. First year hunting it and still learning travel patterns but I’m loving every learning minute I have and can’t wait to further my knowledge of how to pattern and track movement of the groups of deer.

Only made it two days so far.  I saw 5 does on opening day of rifle (Unit CWD) and only one gave me a shot.  I missed.   Next time out, I saw nothing.   I heard them getting busy but it wasn't on my land or where I could see.   But never saw anything.   Heading back out this weekend.

Driving saw a very nice buck on Central Pk close to the concrete pipe plant in Nashville. Base of his antlers looked close to 2.5", big neck.

I've only been once, and that was opening day of muzzleloader. I saw about 30 deer and 5 of them bucks, but nothing worth shooting. It seems the weather sucks when I get a chance to go.

Glad to see you guys getting some nice bucks.

I went out at 11am today. Wind was still howling and I made the decision to sit on a field edge. The area I was in has bad swirling with high winds in the woods so I decided I’d rather not see a deer than be in the woods and spook something good. It was still a good outing because I had beautiful scenery to look at. Gonna get back out Friday and try it again.
