    start a mineral lick in thick cover,the deer will start a trail pattern and you'll be able to set up close , keep it going from year to year .

    There are a number of ways you can improve your sixty acres--First-look at what natural offerings are already there-wild fruit trees can be pruned and cheaply fertilized to produce more fruit-second designate three or four areas to develop as small cover areas these can be 1-2 acres in size-basically develop them into overgrown cover-plant trees-grasses that grow in excess of four feet etc--these areas will become animal travel corridors( ATC's)-staging areas on your property and bedding areas as well.One alternative is to lease some land out to local farmers for crop production-the extra income can be used in development of your property--be sure your lease includes a provision to leave some of the crop standing(1-2%)-ie corn -soybeans(alfalfa is a excellent hay crop that can be used as well)-to provide a food source above an beyond what is left in the field after harvest.-this also assists you you in development without any out of pocket expenses--A more extensive plan would include a ATC across the length of your property using and linking your small cover areas previously developed---- these can be linked by planting grasses that grow in excess of 4-5 feet and leaving them standing untouched.A few changes in the landscape can" invite" more concentrated travel across your property.

    I'm 15 years old and already i love hunting whitetails, the problem is i have 60 acres to live on but no substantial amount of money to improve it. What are some cheap ways to get my land ready for next years hunting season that i can do by myself?

    Long slide w optic cut would cool, but for more general, might go Gov model.
    May just start w a Ruger 1911.
