Well IP (International Paper) got us again. Our hunt club lost 5,000 acres this year to a leach pond project that IP managed to get approved by the EPA for their waste-water. Lost the entire area where the big bucks were taken last year, but that should have pushed them onto the other tract of our lease, so that wasn't too big a problem. But my father and I had our private stand set up in a nice pine stand that funneled from a large power line cut into a feeding area. We had seen lots of good sign and were going through about 150 lbs. of corn a week in our little spot. But Friday, we found out that IP is coming in and taking out both stands of pines up on our hill. So yesterday we went in to pull our feeders and as we were coming to a stop, a nice 8-pointer still in velvet ran across the road from our spot into the adjacent scrub field. We followed his tracks back in to the pine stand, and sure enough he was feeding at the feeder where my bow stand was at. So where as before we thought we had a good spot, now we know it was a good spot. This sucks. So now, a month before opening day, we have to find another place to set up and hope that it is half as good as the other one was. The most frustrating thing is the fact that IP had said they were done cutting three times, and each time they have come back and cut more now. Oh well, little bit of hard scouting and footwork, and we should be back in business. Has anyone else had to deal with a lease like this, where they just come in with no warning and clear cut everything??
