  1. Hey Guys No concrete or stone. I am talking about a dirt pad. I may gravel the inside floor at a later time (after built) but I was not planning on laying any type of a concrete foundation under it. Just a dirt floor. To my understanding, you come in a with bulldozer and build up a pad a few inches for drainage and then the pole barn gets built right on top of the pad. I was not looking to pur a concret foundation. Am I way off? I don't want to pour concrete. Just a dirt floor and then maybe add gravel later.
  2. Howdy I have a question regarding the pad for a pole barn. I have a little excavating work I want done and in that same general area I would like to put a pole barn one day. Since the bulldozer will already be there, why not put the pad in now? Is there anything wrong with putting the pad in now and then waiting a couple years before I put the barn there? Thanks for any help you guys might have.
  3. Sounds like you had a great hunt. I don't think it is a big deal. There is plenty of people passing small ones and it sounds like you have passed your share. Sometime I believe there gets to be too many older bucks in one area and they just will not balloon. So you may have helped yourself out and reduced the herd stress. Not sure how many deer are in your area but if there is a lot then you probably made a contribution. Don't feel bad. I have accidentally shot button bucks and one time I accidentally shot a yearling buck during MLoader. Remorse? None. Unless you keep doing you
  4. Just something to keep in mind folks. There was a lot of human activity in the woods this year with the COVID. A lot of people were home and they were out and about. I believe the deer were subjected to a lot of human pressure throughout the summer when they normally are not. I know a lot of people who have struggled to see deer this year across the state. Things were very different where I am at as well (Finger Lakes). The deer were very skittish and hard to see until about the peak of the rut. Once gun season opened, everything seemed to stop around here. Same for others I have talke
  5. Amazing. 9-year old Missouri hunter shoots a 201" deer. https://www.news-leader.com/story/news/local/ozarks/2020/11/11/missouri-deer-hunting-season-9-year-old-bags-massive-whitetail-buck/6233102002/
  6. Unfortunately, that's the way it goes. It is his property. If it were me, I would stop complaining. It's his property. I learned a long time ago to just do what I want on my land because everybody else does what they want on their land. It be great if everyone respected hunting season. Having good neighbors is huge in life. But that is not reality for many of us or in certain situations, as in your case. No disrespect but one day it may be you who has to do something during hunting season.
  7. Hey Don. Way yo go! It's bigger than I thought he was from the ground photos. Your video looks like a high-tined 9-point and that's what you have sir. Great job!
  8. Same time every year but moon phases, weather, and hunting pressure can make it seem different every year. Many studies have shown that the majority of does in the Northeast are bred on November 15th within a 24 hour window (meaning November 14 - November 16). Heavy seeking and chasing does is not breeding does. Such activity will come and go from late October to late November. But most does (not all) will be bred around November 15th every year.

  10. Just throwing this out there. Seems stumpage prices have not gone all that high with the demand for lumber. I have some to log. Not a lot but some. It was last walked 7 years ago and they said I was 10 - 15 years out. But if prices go up then I might take it now. Anyway, I am hardly an expert on this. I went through the DEC stumapge reports and seems prices have not gone up as much as I would expect. Anyone have any insights on this and where stumpage prices may go soon? Thanks!
