By the way has anyone ever seen that diamond dave guy on springer. I am pretty sure that this guy is no joke. I am pretty sure you can see it on you tube. But anyways that is where the signature came from. If you are needing a laugh, you have to look this guy up. Diamond Dave Ninja School. It is absolutely hillarious.

Going to be a long post here guys.

Bunch of new posted signs went up last week all around me on a old farm I have hunted in the past (1,100 acres). Last year a different 800 acre farm I have hunted most of my life, the farmer decides he wants no one hunting it since a guy decided to sell goose hunts without telling the farmer.

So tonight I go visit the homeowner who struck a lease deal with this other farmer (the one with all the posted signs). Turns out he has 12 guys on roughly 150-200 acres of hardwood, fixed stands all over the place. He asked me if I wanted to join the lease -I said no. With all those stands and hunting pressure, I'd be surprised if anyone bags a decent buck off that land now. I'm more about passing the 2.5-3.5 year olds, all I heard tonight was deer drive...deer drive...deer drive. No offense to those that hunt this way, I just don't care much for deer drives since I bow hunt almost exclusively now.

Seems like as property taxes continue to rise all around my area, farmers are being forced into selling their hunting rights to the highest bidder. Funny thing is, after talking to the guy who leased the property, I stopped by the farm. The farmer was nice about it, but said exactly what I was thinking "Every year it gets harder to turn money out of the dirt. I don't want money like this but every little bit is key to survival"

The good thing is I still have my 30 acre honey hole which borders these two farms. Since I am the only one who can hunt this parcel, I am hoping this new hunt club drives the deer my way. The guy heading up this new club knows this because he asked me to get this 30 acres in his club in exchange for membership into the deer drivers bonanza.

You sound like you're in the same boat as I am. I just found out that all of the land that I have hunted for years has been leased to out of state hunters...and the landowner(that I have grown up with his kids and have always asked permission to hunt every year) didn't even tell me...now I'm forced to drive an hour to my family's lease(we leased it simply because landowner offered it to us because out of state guys wanted to lease it, and he wanted us to have a chance at it first)to hunt. It's really good land, but since I'm in college, I really liked having the land to hunt that was only a mile from my house....oh well, at least I still have land to hunt...

Damn! Finding out about new posted signs and new leases in Oct. - Sucks!!!!! Leasing is the trend all across the country with farmers struggling to keep their land. I've leased for yrs. in Ga. so i'm one of those sorry assed out of state guys. I've never leased a private farm. It's always been timber company land.

Did anybody get to hunt this wk. end??

well didn't see anything not even a doe this evening but its still a little warm but i will be at it again Wednesday evening and thursday morning and evening and maybe see something with a little bone on its head. i could however see my breath in my light walking back to the truck tonight so that's promising now if we could bump about 40 more degrees off the thermostat we will be good if i can get a north north east wind i can get into a spot that we have had a stand in and corn at for 2 years but has only been hunted 2 times in those 2 years it looks promising last time i put corn out had what looked like a dang ole cattle trail going 20 yards by the stand. anybody else get out?
