So, my friend and I have been hunting my uncle's property for the past 2 seasons. I killed a non typical 7pt basket rack buck for my first deer on opening day gun season 2013 and a non typical 9pt (big fella- 245lb live weight) during bow season last year. My friend shot a typical 8pt last year as well. The problem we've been running into for this season is that we have less land to hunt than we thought we had compared to the last 2 years. We've set up on a tree that looks out at the intersection of 3-4 deer trails. We thought that we would be seeing tons of bucks on our trail cam but it's 11 days into bow season and we just now got 1 picture of a buck at night. We are a lot closer to the house than previous years but still not close enough to see it. My uncle has always said "the big boys go deep back there," meaning on the 120 acres of land that borders his property that he didn't know someone actually owned and cared about. Now, I killed a mid-sized doe for the bow season opener 10 days ago and all we have been seeing are doe, fawn and turkey. I know that will pick up more later in the month when the pre-rut kicks in and after that in the rut, when the bucks start chasing does, but we have a small parcel of land (about 2.5 acres) to hunt on, with other hunters in the area. So, the big question is what should we shoot from here on out? We would like to manage the deer herd around us but with such a small parcel, and other hunters nearby, it's hard to. We are not sure whether or not to shoot more young doe to keep the adult doe going, and whether or not to pass on small bucks to allow bigger bucks to grow. If we shoot small bucks then there is the chance for some hunter nearby during either bow or gun to shoot the big guys (big guys in our area are 3yr old 8pts) and then we get skunked for the season big-buck-wise. We're really not sure if Deer management is even an option because of the other hunters nearby. We could use all the help/advice you offer on this subject and what to do to bring in more bucks to our stand also. Thank you and happy hunting!
