Saw the show last night and it amazes me the kinda deer out on Brandywine. I have duck hunted around it alot the last 20 years and just don't see how that kind of deer survives out on the island. Mainly from all the flooding the last few years. I know there is alot of pecan and oaks and persimmons and I guess Alexander and them boys put alot of food plots out so not that just the water running them on and off the island.

When they swim out to Arkansas or North of Memphis do they just instinctively return to the island when the water goes down?

I have deer hunted Shelby Forest WMA on the East bank of the river from the island and you don't see that kinda deer there hardly ever so wonder why not? It doesn't get that much pressure even now that it is not draw hunts anymore.

I have a friend who huntied it last year he said brad faris had left the week befor he came to hunt. He said it was unbelivable at the deer and the deer sign. He killed an eight point that scored 145 ish pushed 250 live wait. but he was just there on a management hunt. He never said what it cost but I'm sure it was stiff.

In a normal high water year, there is about 500 acres that does not flood. Deer hunts are around $7,500 each. This spring the clubhouse and manager's house went under water. Timber management in favor of the deer is one reason why they have such big deer along with an intensive food plot program. The property is amazing and the soil is very fertile there.
