I went out again this morning and walked trails to see if I could figure routes of them deer. I might have something working good this year.

I put this outhouse blind up. It overlooks two trails that cross a creek. For those that never used an outhouse blind, they have to be about the easiest thing in the world to set up. They do not even give instructions to set it up, only take it down. You set it on the ground give it a shake, and it pops right up.

I cut this open road back into the marsh to give the deer a place to walk with less things in their way. I like the idea of giving them a nice open place to gather and talk. I'm just that nice a guy. Also I can use the cedar and black ash trees back at the house.

This is right were the two trails cross. It is 47 yards from the outhouse blind. I walked out three different tracks, but this big track in the picture and that power dump he took, caught my interest. Last week, I tracked him over a mile through the marsh but never could get a look at him.

That is looking up the one deer trail to the creek. Not a place you want to wander into in late afternoon or evening. Good place to get lost and brake an ankle... I never try to get caught after dark in there. It is wet, cold, and just not a nice place to spend the night.

Overall I think with the White Ultra Mag at 47 yards, I might stand a chance, should that big boy come out to play. Friday, I am going to go back in there and set out some scent bombs but not open them until Saturday morning. I can shoot a buck and a doe, and this is our modern season, but I will still use the White. If I get a buck then I want to stalk hunt the rest of the season with a bunch of different rifles, but I do want to get the White bloody...

Yep sure looks like a downtown intersection in deer city. Sure glad you are going to patrol that major highway with the white. It should do you good on population control. You are right though that place looks kind of thick. The kind of place you will see them but not hear much.

exactly... could not have said it better. Once you leave my property you have miles and miles of federal forest to wander around on.
