Problem is, that food source will change within the next 30 days, so when the opener comes, there will be no deer there. Time to start scouting what other food sources are in the immediate area that will "ripen" in about 30 days. But its still nice to know there are bucks of that quality in your hunting area-it will make passing up the dinkers that much easierjust can't stay away from the beans, it mesmorizes them and they just can't help themselves.
Robin, those apple trees will rippen in Early to Mid September. nock a few apples to the ground on Sept 1, and repeat the process every 3 days. If there are not enough apples in those trees-supplement with deer (bruised/nicked) apples from the local orchard. Keep those trees hot with apples through Mid september, and those big guys will show[up] If you will have access to the property next year too, come mid March 2010, use Jobes "fruit tree spikes" to fertelize those apple trees and prune them back some. Then in fall 2010 you will have loads of apples and tastier ones at thatthere are still some apple trees back along the edges of the woods and the fields.
