We have 80 acres. This shot is a little old. The double-wide trailor is gone. Built a shop there this summer. We built our inground house where the garden is below the double-wide (1).
I hunt on 2 and 5 mostly, they are sturdy wooden platforms which we recently checked and re-nailed where needed. There will be a total of four hunters so we can move to different stands depending on the weather. We owned the place for 10 years and so far there haven't been any tresspassers. There is private ground surrounding the farm and that helps. Good luck to all for a safe deer hunt.

i'll tell you what happened with me and my neighbor a few years ago. betwwen us we got hundred acre of woods and several large fields, some boxed with woods.

after making up some plan the night before,we set out pre-dawn. he dam near froze in his ground blind and got back home for coffee. while he was in the kitchen he saw an 8 pointer come out behind his house. that year he didn't have far to walk to tag his deer.
i heard him shoot and thought it was his wife. she shot one that way the year before. might not be that sportsmanlike to some of you, but for them elderly folks it was some meat in the freezer without far to walk.

Just as I was getting less than a (by the crow flies - triple by roads) mile from home, three of the darn things hanging out on the road.

We built the lake (with 80% cost share from the soil conservation folks - about time I got some government money) in 1996. It filled on Feb. 22, 1997 after a 4inch rain. We put in bigger than fingerlings, bass, channel cat, blue gill, hybrid bluegills. My grandson caught a six pound bass off the dock about a year ago and the cats are up to 7 pounds.

We also have a geothermal system, 5 - 250 ft. runs of pipe that helps a lot with the heating and cooling, coupled with radiant floor heating.

Here's a shot of the house.
