first post! how to manage my property

Postby bigdmuss55 » Sun Dec 30, 2012 1:00 am

Hey i just wanted yalls opinion on how i should manage my deer hunting property. Its in a neighborhood but its outside of the city limits and the game warden said it was legal. It its probably 50 acres the deer have that is untouched by people. There is probably 8 acres of marsh/grass that the deer bed in. I hunt them in my yard and have 4 1 1/2 year old bucks and two will score in the 115-130 range next year. Thats very nice for nc haha. There are maybe 5-10 does and 3 fawns that stick with one doe (this is all based on trail cam just in my yard). There is a giant rub in the woods next to my yard that i dont believe the young bucks could have done. they may have i dont know though. How do i grow their racks to their full potential and can i do it just in my yard? They come feed on corn in my yard every night but is that enough protein? What are some good protein rich thing i could use without planting and not too expensive. Thanks for the help any advice would be appreciated.

Put out a free choice feeder. You can put corn in it at first, after they eat that slowly mix in some type of protein feed. I use Purina Antler Max but that pricy. You should also plant a food plot. if you plant a large one 1+ acre don't put the feeder to close to it. If you plant a smaller one put 10 feet from a side with dense brush.

Make your property a sanctuary! Increase cover on all of your property, don't walk around in it much, and hunt only on the best days.

well i would say like the other guy said don't walk around it much and if you do use rubber boots or something with no sent. I would also plant a food plot with a combination of turnip sun flowers and oats.
