    its cheatin... put in your time and hard work, otherwise, when you do kill a deer in that guys stand you didn't scout, you'll know in your own heart and mind you didn't put in the work and earn that deer. You know it's cheating, thats why you are asking, to have other validate and justify your cheating...If you want to cheat, fine, but you know deep down you didn't earn that deer.

    last week my buddy gave me a tip on a spot with heavy deer activity in the woods we hunt. I hunted it thenext day and shot my first ever deer. I showed him the tree I was in and Two nights later he hunted same spot and shot an 8 Point buck... we are all here to help each other out... go and enjoy the hunt and don't forget to pay it forward some day!

    You'd be a FOOL not to take him up on his offer.

    Hell no, I've accepted the offer with thanks. I'm excited & looking forward to it. Fresh scrapes & rubs were reported today (can't hunt on Sundays in Maine).

    Here is a way to handle it:

    Take a climber in mid afternoon do some scouting, look at some satellite views, and play the wind. Do your best to put yourself on deer and hunt. Teach yourself how to put a good fair chase hunt on without being told where to sit. You'll become a more confident hunter by getting it done on your own.

    if you carried a 50 pound bag of corn and dumped it out in front of a stand once a week for a month then hunted over it, THAT would be cheating

    hunting land that someone gave you permission to hunt is just freaking awesome

    Hey to each their own opinion. I'm an adult and can appreciate both view points. That's why I posed the question in the first place, as for me and my brother-were good on it & he doesn't feel it's cheating because he hasn't touched the stand all year & couldn't promise I'd even see anything.

    another way to frame it may have been, "who out there wouldn't hunt better quality land if presented the opportunity."

    Ignore and he will go away. It's simple. See a post from him. Don't open it. Skirting the language filter, name calling, etc. won't be tolerated regardless of circumstance.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    That's what I thought initially, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. He's not going away, as we've seen. Calling someone a "cheater" isn't name calling? It looks to me like it's being tolerated. No?

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    That's right , it was a gift! People say and do good things for people who are good people. You may want to review your own posts and turn off your judgement machine! remember, "Those who don't judge matter, those who judge don't matter."
