I implemented a trophy management program on my land 10 years ago. In two tracts,4 of ushunt just over 2000 acres, with another 2000 in between that nobody hunts. The other landowner and myself do all of the hard work as far as flood plots(year round), supplemental protien feeding, and scouting (year round). We love to see people harvest nice bucks. However, it kinda sucks because now I live in Florida (work) and he works all the time at the law firm (his senior partner died in a plane crash last spring). Anyway a couple of nice bucks have been harvested on the tract this year. One out of a stand that I hung and planned to hunt. I saw a 140 class buck twice this year but couldnt get a shot, I guess I got my chance. Anyway, I figured yall would liek to see a few of the deer. Kinda mad about the last one it needed another year.

Thats what it's all about. With the proper management and understanding between fellow hunters, trophy bucks can be taken with some degree of regularity. Nice job, you'll get your shot.

Now they are working...? AWESOME job man. Those are some great bucks. This is what deer can become if they get to grow up. :bowdown

Where abouts is are they from AL or FL? I wouldn't guess FL though.

Deer management programs take a large continuous tract of land or the agreement of several adjoining landowners. Managing 100 acres is worthwhile but not promising. The area isn't large enough for a several bucks to have core areas. We have a couple hundred acres within our tracts that we don't hunt in order to give the deer a safety zone. It really cuts down on pressure. In order to get the deer using your tract more will require year round food plots as well as additional browse they cant find on other tracts (apple trees, persimmon, honeysuckle, etc.) Tecomate makes several great summer plots, some of which will grow well in FL soil types. You must get soil samples on your plots or you will waste a lot of money.

Teamdilligaf. Looks like yall shoot just about any buck that walks based off of your gallery. Thats one reason you dont see many big bucks. Hunting is all about having fun, so if those deer make you happy, by all means keep up the good work. If you want a couple of wall hangers let those young deer walk and talk your club members into it as well. I know the mentality that someone else will shoot it. That might happen but its worth the effort if your track of land is large enough to support a management program. We dont kill deer like this every year. Lots of acorns this year and a long rut helped. Last year we killed two off of 2500 acres and the year before 1. So it about patience.
