Some of the land is better than others, time of year plays a big part, I don't always have the woods to myself, and some of it I only have permission for just myself or immediate family, but I do see some nice deer and I usally see at least 1 deer each year on the hoof that will go above 170 inches. I just cant seem to always connect.

    Here is my best deer and it is from Ohio. Top picture in my post on this thread.

    I've also got a lot of other pictures both of harvested and game camera pictures that show some real nice deer.
    Thanks everyone,
    A couple of years ago I was out riding my atv behind the house during archery season when I ran into 3 first time elk hunters from Missouri who were really struggling. After talking to them for a while I offered to show them some areas that I knew held elk. I saw them a few days later and they thanked me for the help getting them into some elk.( they got a cow and saw 3 bulls). They offered to take me whitetail hunting in Missouri but when I tried contacting them all of the numbers they gave were bogus and left me with kind of a bad taste in my mouth. I have family with property in Nebraska and Eastern Colorado that allow us to hunt does but not bucks since they have it leased to an outfitter. We have nice white tails here but I would have to apply as a first choice and I would miss hunting muleys too much to do that. I have offered to swap hunts before and offered a horseback elk hunt with me and my friend in the wilderness here in exchange for a good whitetail hunt but it seemed as though most of the respondents did not give me a comfy able feeling. I figured that a public land hunt in the Midwest sounded like a cool adventure. IM NOT GOING TO HAVE TO SIT IN A TREE ALL DAY AM I????????

    That's a bunch of crap. Hate that they did that to you. If you ever want to come to Ohio or KY I'll gladly show you some great DYI public land. No swap hunt needed. Or I'll even put you on some private land if you'd rather do that. The best public land is primarily archery only. It just all depends on what you want in a hunt. Easily under 1k$ including tags.

    Granby, if you want to hunt some whitetails, there are plenty here in Kansas. I just moved to Kansas last year and was able to spot and stalk my first KS whitetail last year in western Kansas with my bow. You have to draw in Kansas and with the tag and license, you will be paying around 500 for a deer, but its close enough to you fuel won't be as big of a deal. I got help last year from a forum member (wapiti66) on some places to start looking, so I'll be glad to pass along some advice from what I saw last year. Pm me if you are interested.

    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    Hahahaha. Most likely. Where my better stands are at if you are not sitting in a tree you probably wont see a deer from ground level until it is too late and if you tried still hunting any deer would be gone long before you saw it because of how thick and noisy it can be. Especially if you are using a bow. So yeah, you'll probably be in a tree all day.

    Are 22-26ft heights from a 20x24 platform ok with you?

    If you get serious about Ohio let me know. I might be able to help out.

    Just a tease for you. Here is 2 of the guys I was chasing last fall. I ended up getting the one on the left.

    Here are my 2 bucks from 2012 in KY. Mounted buck is my archery deer, the euro is a public land draw hunt, where I work and guide deer hunters. Got him with a ML. Struck out in Ohio this year, but here are a couple I was after.

    My friend got the big tall buck with his bow. Long drag up out of those Ohio hills. We'd been after him for the last two seasons.
