Hunting Michigan since 1965. Started hunting this property in 2019, the best deer hunting I have ever had. These bucks were taken in 2019, 2020 and the 3peat in 2021. This one came right up the fence line at first light in a light snow, following a bunch of does. Came right off a big ground scrape and gave me a broadside shot at 75 yards, no tracking necessary. Hadn’t been in my blind 10 minutes. Ingham county doesn’t have 4 pt restriction, but thankfully, all my surrounding neighbors abide by 8 pt and wider than their ears.
