Pinetag's Plot - 43 acres in Virginia

Absolutely! I think of how much money we put into food plots and the amount of quality food they produce. I compare that to Timber management which creates a much higher quantity of quality native foods for a much larger positive impact. On top of that, instead of being a financial drain like food plots, it is an income producing source. While we will always have some food plots, timber management provides a much better bang for the buck in more ways than one. :)

Agreed!

First sits of the year today. I only saw a small doe this morning but I had an encounter with my #1 target buck this evening. He was slow trailing a doe about 70 yards out. I was only catching glimpses of antler at first but then he hit a small hole and I immediately recognized him. He was in the area this morning as well.

It all came together yesterday and I was fortunate enough to take this incredible 9 pointer!! He started showing on camera in mid October and I have gotten multiple daylight pics of him since. The big 12 has been absent since 11/1 so there is the possibility that he got careless or maybe he’s just off chasing does on other properties.

Very nice buck! Congrats!
 
I was able to get out for another hunt yesterday with a buddy of mine. We got skunked in the morning but had a flurry of activity in the evening. I ended up seeing 3 does with 4 fawns (3 of which were button bucks) and then had an encounter with a decent buck an hour before last light. He stayed about 70 yards out in the thick stuff but his mass, main beams, and tine length all looked good. I think one of my target 8’s showed back up on camera two nights ago so glad to know at least 1 of my top 3 has survived to this point. The rut has slimmed him down some over the last couple weeks.
