Early season is slow.  Seeing lots of small bucks and only a few does.  The White Castle property is kicking my butt.  It's a different kind of terrain and timber than I am used to hunting.  There are so many Oak and Hickory trees, it's hard to pinpoint a good stand location.  I am having to re-learn everything I know about hunting.  It's amazing that a place can be so different just an hour from home.  I am used to hunting Pine woods with small hardwood bottoms.  This place is an island of timber surrounded by sugar cane and soy bean fields and less than a mile from the Mississippi river.  It's almost like the stories I hear from the guys up north.  Small wooded tracks and lots of crop fields.  When the rest of the state was in a drought and the deer were hungry and dry, this property maintained a buffet of forage.  The deer don't respond to corn or supplemental feed, they don't need to.  They like my food plots, but don't rely on them like they do in the Piney woods.  I feel like a rooky again.  It is frustrating and exhilarating.  I love it.

Don't put a stand in hickory if the nuts are still on....they hurt like heck when they hit you in the head and the squirrels will literally run up and down your arms.......BEEN THERE....ALSO when the hickory got gold you cannot camo your self.  Great for later season hunting though.
