  • i recently purchased a 40 acre wooded property for hunting white-tails and turkey in central is very promising

    i recently purchased a 40 acre wooded property for hunting white-tails and turkey in central is very promising except i dnt know were to start on getting it "hunting ready" it is very thick and scrubby with lots of oak, birch and poplar trees,it butts up against 300 acres of public hunting land(which is mostly swamp)...which gets mild pressure during the hunting neighbors however seem to be my biggest problem with their "its brown its down" attitude on whitetails, their large tracts of land and mulitple food on a limited budget, though not afraid to get my hands dirty. im desperate to get some quality wildlife habitat,activity and some decent trophys ......please help!!!!

    I'd open some areas up and plant some food plots with peas/beans, seed is cheap and you said you did'nt mind the dirty hands.
    The public land/neighbors should'nt be problems though cause as soon as you give them a place to live/hide/eat, as they said in "Field of Dreams" "If you build it, they will come".
    Talk to your local Game & Fish guys and they can help you with this too.
    Good luck and Good hunting. Oh I want to come hunt with you for my consulting fee(LOL).

      Big O is pretty much right, get your hands on some saoybeans or alfalpha. imperial chicory plus from works real well too.

        permanent mineral licks will cause the deer to develope travel paterns away from the public hunting ground where baiting is generaly illeagle.

          I don't know the exact details, but a friend of mine also has some land in central Wisconsin. He works with the DNR for some kind of deer managed land. With this he also gets a tax break on the land. You could try giving them a call.
