    hunt with friends or family who do not help with putting up stands, putting in food plots, checking game cameras, scouting, etc.? They simply start hunting in November and end up killing the biggest buck in your hunting group. I'm happy for everyone that kills a deer, but would rather see the guys who put in the time and effort get rewarded. Just my :02:

    The last couple years things have changed where I hunt and the others are wondering why it is me killing the deer and not them. I just tell them sometimes you got to put some work into it and not just show up opening morning and climb into your deer stand that has been there for years

    I'm not worried. I'd be the first one to congratulate them. I just wished they realized and appreciated the amount of time and money that my dad and I spend on making our property better, or at least helped out occasationally!

    UNLESS you put some SWEAT EQUITY in the upkeep of my farm, you don't hunt my land. Its been that rule since day one. A farm, even though its not a full time residence, still requires a lot of upkeep, epically when it come to deer hunting preparation.

    I make it known to all my siblings, and friends who like to hunt. Unless you help, you don't hunt.

    I think time and money is the big thing for me. those stands,food plots mineral licks,camo wrap and all the good food we eat take up time and money but one of my faults is i like to make people happy and want them to have a good hunt.

    I started out doing all the scouting, stand building, hanging, etc. Got some help on occasion from my Dad and wife's stepdad. Never thought twice about it. I looked at it as some payback for all the times Dad took me and all the things he showed me about hunting and fishing. MY Son and Nephew are always first in line to help out now with whatever is needed. They have learned well and are a great help. Whether it is hunting or fishing I get far more enjoyment putting someone else on the deer or the fish. Lord knows I have kilt my share.:cheers:

    I hunt with my oldest son. He and I set up the stands together and do some scouting. He has done most of the scouting though. He lives on the land and bow hunts it too. He hunts from both our stands, so he has knowledge about all the movement on the property. He has been a big help since I was injured in 2007. I'm just now getting to where I can hold my own in the woods. It definitely pays to teach your children how to hunt, fish, etc. I owe him for putting up with me because I know doesn't have too. I love my kids!

    You know it is funny to see this type of thread I am so often the rewarded when it comes to hunting someones property. I have 2 friends one a lady friend and the a male friend of a friend, both of whom has allowed me to hunt their place as neither of them does any prep short of telling me I can do whatever I want to the property short of damage, I do it all. Having said that most of the time I don't get a deer and when I do they get a thank you package of Venison and I also am there to plow snow of the ladies driveway when it get bad, cut, split and stack wood for their wood stoves and, help with property maintenance. These are people I hope to be my life long friends so I take care of the friendships best I can.

    nope, no problems here. own property with two buddies who are more than willing to work and reap the rewards. now as far as ducks go, yeah i know of some moochers but let's be honest, there is enough to go around and well, they make me laugh at their stupid stuff so it is more than worth it. you can't make the stuff up that them idiots pull.

    HUMMMMMMMM one thing I learned long time ago is there is no justice in hunting , people kill what they kill. Now with that said I do get aggravated with people ( guys on neighbor's property ) that show up two days before season , line my fence with stands ( 10 yds off line ) facing my property , then go round talking about how silly it is to plant food plots and try to manage deer . Guess it kinda why people on welfare don't worry about tax increases
