I am hunting in area 9 on a 100 yard wide x 150/200 yard deep piece of property. The property that I hunt backs up to 1000 acres that is leased by 2-3 hunting clubs and DMAP participants. The deer that I have on camera are all at night but there seem to be plenty of deer in the area. I tried using corn but the coons destroyed it, and I also tried some race horse oats and they tore that up as well. The only thing that I Use that they dont seem to tear up but still eat is the persimmon rice bran. Is there a food source that I can put on the ground or the two gravity feeders I have out there (of which I am tempted to remove) that the coons wont destroy and may attract the deer better. Any advice or tips are appreciated.

Hello all,I need some help reading a faded capacity plate. I am mainly trying to figure out the manufacturer of the boat so I can call and get pertinent information based off the serial number. Any help, is appreciated

Shot my first deer of my hunting 'career ' today. Nothing special but it's meat in the freezer and a great memory caught on tape using my gopro

Nothing like a good hunt on public land. Me and my buddy went down to Sherburne WMA on Sunday morning in hopes of shooting some feathers, reports in the area were conflicting but as most people say a bad day in the woods is better than most days regardless. Anyway we had a nice group of woodies/ teal fly in early, I missed on my three shots and my buddy's gun jammed; not a great start. Later that morning we had another small group fly in and I ended up shooting my first green winged teal. After that is was pretty dead. But like a blessing from above, literally, right before I was about to enter the water and get decoys, while my buddy's dog was having fun swimming, a group of mallards fly in! in a hurry we quietly fetch our 12 gauges and get the dog out of the water. While planning our stalk, we have another group start to circle and land, as we are both frozen/trying to figure out our best lines of attack the hen next to the drake I am eyeing decides to she has had enough and was out of there. Well with that I wasn't letting my first drake get away so as he came off the water I put him down with one #4 shot, and unloaded the other two trying to catch a duck or two more flying out. Meanwhile my buddy put a hen down with his #6 shot. After that we were both ecstatic and on cloud 9, especially me! To top the day off my buddies 7 year old chocolate lab retrieved her first 2 ducks! All in all a great day full of memories and one that left us wanting more. Happy hunting and holidays to you all.

I have thought about the soybeans but I havent read anything special about them, I know that they like the actual plant. I never given much thought to just hunting natural, but I already play the waiting game as it is, my property is at the end of the track they circle

Yes we are aware of that and we are having issues at the moment and currently I can't fully inspect the transom. I was hoping to read the manufacturer on the capacity plate so as to have a back up if the hin can't be found

Not sure, just know we were in Madisonville, boat launch is right past the library. We had a strong wind in our face and plenty of birds on the water but none coming into the decoys. people did try to stir them up from time to time but the birds would just move out the way so to they were happy where they were.
