The place I have hunted the last 5 years got leased out to a hunting TV show which I won't mention the name. I went to scout a little after work last week and notice no hunting or trespassing signs all over the place. I called the landowner and asked him what the deal was and he said he leased the land. He said he told them no but they kept offering money and he said they threw out a number he just couldn't refuse. I don't blame him. He gets free money for doing nothing. Well Monday the TV shows truck was parked there. This is the thing that makes me mad: They waited until the rut to lease it. I have spent a lot of time scouting that whole area this year. This place it literally 1/4 mile from my house. I could get home from work and get in the tree stand for an hour or so before dark. Now I have to drive 30 minutes to my other spot. So hunting during the week is pretty much over. I haven't spent a lot of time in the other spot scouting. And here is why I have spent so much time in the place close to home. There is a 200" buck in there. He is on a trail camera on adjoining property crossing the river onto my hunting place. The river is only 50 yards wide and 2 feet deep. Word got out about this big buck and now what a coincidence that this place shows up and leases the land. So those that like watching hunting shows, now you know how they get the monster bucks. Wait until you hear about one somewhere, and go throw money at the land owner until he can't turn it down. Don't let them tell you all the scouting they do. They didn't show up until the rut was just starting to kick in good.
