    I also checked on a hinge cut I did earlier in the spring. It looks great!

    Well I checked a camera at the pit....3600 pics to go through. I will hopefully be starting one of my fall food plots this week. Got a 1 acre plot to mow so I can spray and plant mid August

    Still hoping to see a photo of the giant you took on this place.

    Hope the cam check is a great one.

    Ohh boy I love this time of year! Several bucks I know from the past seasons on the camera check. Pretty boy and survivor both are still around....I'll post pics in seperate thread. My #1 buck from last year, broken beam, has not shown up yet...but last year he didn't show up till August so I'm not worried yet.

    I took advantage of the nice weather this afternoon and hung a new stand. It is a funnel on the top of a hardwood ridge. In the spring I did a selective hinge cut to block deer traffic from walking downwind of where I wanted the stand. It took quite a bit of trimming to be able to shoot, but in excited about the spot. It should be killer

    My access to this stand is perfect. A big cliff from the mining is only 40 yards to the north. I can climb the cliff on a south wind and pop into my tree with no chance of a deer coming from that direction

    Well I finally had time to put in some work on the place yesterday. I mowed my lanes which were getting overgrown. Mowed my biggest fall food plot area so I can spray it in a week or so, and I trimmed shooting lanes for a couple stands, replaced mineral site, and checked a camera...4065 pics and 3 shooter 4 year olds...
