Property Management Timeline #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Long time hunter, but new to land management here. My family owns a farm in Eastern MO (approx. 2,000 acres) that I have hunted since I was a kid. We have never done any management as it is a functioning cattle/crop farm along the Missouri River bottoms. We have large open bottoms with small hard wood strips along the river edge and some moderate sized hard wood plots (1-6 acres) throughout. There are also larger wooded areas in the bluffs that provide more cover with hard woods and cedar groves.
With the background stated, what I would like to figure out is a timeline of management throughout the year. What month do I do a controlled burn, put up cameras, move cameras, place stands, cut shooting lanes, put in food plots, place supplements, and so forth. I would love for some of you to weigh in on your month to month timeline leading up to season. Thanks in advance!

Purchased some new hunting property, Need help on where to scout first? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

All,
I purchased a house with some property(120 acres). I know I can get out there and hoof it all over the property and look for sign, which I will do eventually but I figured what the heck some of you might be better at this than me so here is a topo map of the property and a satellite view. Where would you scout first? In the satellite view I have colored some blue areas. On the lower left side you have a stream (shallow maybe a few inches deep and only a couple feet wide) which runs North/south (the pictures are orientated with North being the top). That stream actually runs into a small pond maybe 10ft in diameter and 6 feet deep. The area that has blue speckles on the left side represents more of a swamp and im betting deer definitely hide in there. Near the top of the map you will see another speckled area which again this is another swampy area. This area is also drastically up a steep hill as you can tell by the attached topo map. I don’t think the deer travel up that hill too much judging from my preliminary scouting but I could be wrong. I was only in there one time and didn’t see much sign but really didn’t look much. If you want to screen shot my pictures and mark places of interest feel free! Thanks!House Topo Map.jpgShowing Water features.jpg

How would you hunt this thick wooded mountainous property?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

A family member recently bought this house on a piece of land a little less than 200 acres in upstate New York and gave me permission to hunt it.

The lack of obvious hunting spots based off the topos is giving me a bit of trouble trying to figure out how I should hunt it.

The entire property is pretty thick hard woods, mix of pines,oaks,etc…The bottom edge of the property borders a road and reservoir. The roads that are on the map in the middle of the property are not there in real life.. must be some sort of map error. The left half of the property is a pretty steep mountain face- not too steep to walk, but a pretty serious incline. There are about 4 or 5 well cleared but unused logging trails that run across flat ridges that are parallel to the main road-these logging trails are spaced pretty evenly from bottom to top. To the direct left of the property is a small farm with 8-10 apple trees that the deer feed on in night. Above the house, a power line runs through the woods- this is the only spot on the property that a deer has been taken thus far(Two decent 8 pointers, two consecutive years).

Upon first glance of these terrain maps, does anyone see some potential areas to further investigate. Is topographic analysis even useful on a property like this? Or in general, have any tips to hunt thick mountainous woods like this?

Do you hunt property lines?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Just curious. I have 19acres on the mountain at my house and I’ve been very limited on deer sightings. I’ve seen two doe in five sits. Well I own a few hundred feet on the north side of the mountain and never hunted it. Went up there yesterday and made a natural blind as its been select cut a few years ago so I can’t get in a stand without butchering the place. Where I set up is right on the line and I can shoot about 25 yards onto neighboring property. I’ve never seen anyone up there or evidence of anyone hunting. Am I wrong for shooting over the line? I think if I can get a shot at a nice buck I’ll take it. I won’t shoot a doe because it would be a nightmare to get out.

2 pieces of property and no good pics of big bucks

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Hey all,
I am fortunate enough to hunt on two properties. One is 27 acres(which my father in-law lives on) that is surrounded by 3 corn fields that add up to another 100 acres. Think like a horse shoe…the empty space in the middle is my father in-laws land and the surrounding "shorseshoe shape" are the corn fields his neighbors own (who dont hunt).
The other property is 150acres which is surrounded by other plots of land where people do hunt. this is all woods with 3 different grassy fields, but there are some farm fields with-in quarter mile as well. This property is new, we just bought last year.

Last year…we had lots of nice 8 pointers and 10 pointers on camera at my fathers house property(the horseshoe one), however, only one eight pointer was shot…nothing else mainly because we spent most our time at the new 150 acre property. This property was just bought last year and we didnt have time for scouting accept to see some rub areas which we set-up stands around. We actually shot a monster 10 point last year at this new property. Anyways, to make a long storry short….we set camera’s up everywhere at the new property and the old horseshoe property.

We were surprised to only see tons of doe and younger bucks. I mean a lot! We left the cameras out for about a month and there wasnt a day or camera with out a deer on it…and not just single deer…we are talking some days had groups of lots of deer but there was NOT anything bigger than a younger 6 point which is crazy because like I said, at the horseshoe property, no one else hunts and last year was actually the first year we didnt hunt it hard and only took one eight pointer and the new property showed LOTS of does and actually a really good amount of young bucks but nothing big. So what gives? Where did all the big boys go haha. My father in-law is friends with most the surrounding land owner hunters and everyone had a bad year last year so we all expected to see lots of big deer this year…I live in new york by the way.
