berudd is right. i own 20 arces in northern wisconsin. heres my story. bought land in 2007, moved up following spring. that first year i had surveyed the land and posted it via gps+wasp with my name and phone number to help the locals id who bought it (in august) and ya know what they did instead, stole stands and cameras, rammed my gate, littered and dumped garbage everywhere, and carried on like i wasnt even worth their time. then i moved to my land and most of the dinks simply left, but the worst clan of re-re's still tresspass when they want and even three bouts with the sheriff's deputies haven't gotten rid of them. when i bought my chunk i immediately put in a 1 acre food plot. then last summer i added another 3/4 acres and have in winter done some timber manipulation to make life better for all. i dont know where you are located but chances are that through habitat manip you can do alot for your piece, and funnels are a great way to take census and kill big deer. i have shot 3 biggies last 2 years bow and gun and my wife took her first deer this year - a 110 1/2" 3.5 9pt. my best is 152 1/2 10 pt this year. food plots are important but whats around the plot is more so. key in on that to make life as good as possible until your neighbors catch on. i have mfl private land behind mine so the public is always taking the easy meal young deer offer there, and brown its down is the motto of most of the north country wisconsinites.
main thing, stay positive, and use your noggin to hang tags where they belong - remember, the only thing even close to predictable about mature deer is the way they use land, period. use a sanctuary if you have that kinda acreage, i use the slew in the middle of my prop by my house (3 acres approx) as a no-go and deer know it. keep land thick with saplings and young conifs and dont be afraid to plant tall grass like big blue stem or switchgrass around for cover for YOU on your way to your stands (just a strip to block view, dont walk thru it).
keep at it it will get better and try like hell to talk with the area hunters about cooperating with you, but do it smart.
only if we had antler point restrictions...
try not to become a man of success, but a man of value.
