We have one farm in Green county and most of the others are around Scott and Morton and Macoupin coutnies. We have a bunch of smaller farms scattered. He scores right at 172, 79 and change on deers left, 72 and change on right and 20" spread. We don't see a lot of deer where we are, nothing like when I hunted in Pike county. We had a guy come hunt with us year before last and after the first day he was complaining that he wasn't seeing 15 to 20 deer a hunt like where he hunted in Pike, I suggested he go back to Pike county. We're 60 to 90 miles from river, fair number of deer but nothing like near the river but it works for me, real hunting. I usually see about the same amount of deer I would see on a Mississippi hunt, sometimes a little more, sometimes a litle less but they are usually better racked deer because of age structure and soybeans all summer and strict one buck wildlife laws and enforcement. But everyday we have guys go sit in stands and come back and see zero and you'll have a guy that will see fifteen the same day so it's hunting.
