Cut down a bunch of trees around my walnut tree that I just climbed. This is my 3rd hunt from this tree and I saw deer the last 2 times and someone has cut big wide shooting lanes since the last time I was here. I feel a bit exposed but hope I can shoot one. I will definitely be talking to the area mgr after I climb down as I doubt he would approve cutting down multiple trees over 4" in diameter. Someone thinks this is their own little honey hole I guess.

When you go back next time there probably will be a ladder stand there. Lol hate it for the spot you had picked out.

I figured someone would find it, but dang I feel like I can't draw the bow now without being seen.

lol nobody would know I was ever there unless they looked close and saw the climber marks. I'm the one following the rules and not cutting any live trees without approval...

When you have another 10 years under your belt
You may learn if you found it others had been
hunting it before you

As far as climber marks, it's the same you learn
With time in the woods just looking... Not for deer
or deer sign that people have hunted there before
you and left sign.

Trail Cams, Videos, Books, Magazines , TV shows
And New Equipment don't make up for time in
the woods and boots on the ground. Many TN
Deer hunters earned their Stripes from squirrel hunting
Back before deer were around.

They are on this site too, could be a lowly 4 or 6
Pointer in posts, they just don't talk much, and
they sure don't ask what's my next move while
Setting in the woods....

But hey that's when a 18 month old 8 pointer
was a big thing and a 100" buck was talked about
for months....

Last I heard you need a permit to cut down trees. trimming some limbs and cutting down trees are entirely different things. Sounds like someone is thinking Big Gun and long shots. Glad you got one Catman.
