I'd say 60 acres is small. I'd say 200 acres is small. I'd also say that you can make either one of those properties larger by simply not over-pressuring them and having a thick sanctuary or security cover where they can escape hunting pressure from all sides.

Realistically, a buck covers alot of territory...especially during the rut. There is no way I could ever expect a buck to stick to my 1000 acres much less a 60 or 200 acre tract but you can make it more appealing to their needs which may up your odds.

Interested to hear what "small property" is referring to? Are we talking 60 to 200 acres? What is small?


Anything under a square mile, and in some situations, under 1,000 acres.

I have hunted everyday except for 3 days since Dec.8, I am worn out to say the least. But I have seen alot of deer. Holding out for a good one. No my standards don't change towards the end of season. If anything they have went higher.

Yelp bryan's is great does over 350 deer a year and you will have em on your wall within 3 months! For a great price and great work.

I've come to realize over the past several years that at least half of the racked bucks I pass will be shot by another hunter that same year. My outlook on it is that if I shoot him, he then has zero chance of getting by til next year. If i pass him then his chance of living at least rises a little bit.


And if you hunted a small property, like many hunters do, you would find that the majority of bucks you pass this year will never be seen in a future year, whether someone kills them or not. That's just the reality of small-land management. In that situation, you simply learn to aim for the best this year has to offer, whatever that is.

This is so true for my area! I can't remember ever seeing but maybe one deer that I had on camera the next year. I normally have several decent ones each year but only a few ever make it. Their has been 15 bucks that I have had on cam or been kill on or on the property line of my place! Too many!
