Hey fellas,

I made the rounds today, talked to all the guys who let me hunt and made sure everything is still ok to hunt and I am good to go, but I may lose a spot next year. I don't think I will, but its possible. One of my owners is getting to old (85) and is letting one of his daughters take over the property. The man who leases it to farm and aslo gives me permission to hunt said he might not farm it next year. The guy who leases the farm rights hunts though and he thinks I will still be ok to hunt since I have been good to the old man who owns it and all the other local farmers. That and I hunt several of the local farms and know most the land owners in a 3-4 mile radius. I am also on good standing with the grandson of the owner and he has told me to take as many deer and turky as I would like. I believe the owners daughter is the mother to the grandson so I might be ok. That and I think they like that I look after the place some just by being there. They have had problems with vandals and tresspassers in the past. Its the same property that my blind was stolen from this year. Theres an ol abandon church that piece by piece is walking off. I hope I don't loose my spot though. Had some really great hunts there.

Good news is I stuck a couple more irons in the fire and may be able to hunt a few new places, but I gota check back with the owners.

I guess these things are gona happen, but thats why I always stop and chat it up with these guys several times a year. Some of the old timers will talk your ear off lol, but its always good talkin and it keeps me hunting some of the best places around. wink.gif

I love hunting on the land of some farmers that treat you like family. There was one farm near Lawrence, KS I hunted for a few years. Everytime they were going to be leaving for the weekend or do the snow bird thing, they would call and let me know. Awesome turkey property on Kansas River. You treat them with respect and it will go a long ways.

When my hunting partner and I look and ask permission to hunt on properties, I have to do the asking. Hes from the city and I grew up on a farm. He would get denied and most of the time I would get permission. He hated it.

Give a man a deer, he’ll eat for a day. Teach him to be a bowhunter, will feed his family for ever!!!!

I spent most of my life hunting, the rest I have wasted.
