Some good advice here. Definitly study the topo and arial maps,when you do the ground scouting do not forget to list existing spieces the deer are using like native plant (wildgrape, blackberry, rassberry, persimons,and etc) and non-native (japanesse honey suckle). Before I thought of all that other, work with what you have and enhance it with fertilizer. I deal with people everyday and I was one of them myself. If you utilize the exixting plants its less expensive than foodplots and then as time and money is possible start your foodplot program slowly.

Why would you High Fence it..thats not hunting. Man I love my FREE-RANGE DEER!

I think people are ignorant for high-fencing!! I also don't like Shooting Houses!


I think a lot of people would agree about the High Fence!
right on there man

get to know it like thet back of your hand, as well as the land around it, use topo maps, put in food plots, mineral locations and even feeder in the offseason,set up the cameras and keep a close check on the boundry's to keep trespassers out. good luck and post some pics.

There is a place called Voss signs in New York that has a website that you can orderaluminum signs that are only about $1.50 apiece and will last a LONG time. The key is to not nail in the aluminum nail all the way to allow the tree to grow without pushing the head through the sign.
