The Les­son

Field and Stream - - GIANT -

You don’t need 1,000 acres to hold a good buck into the late sea­son. I’d done some log­ging in an old wood­lot, planted a cou­ple of plots, put in a pond, and let the cover grow up. The whole area is only 12 acres, bor­dered by pub­lic ground. Split Ear pretty much moved in and claimed the spot as his core area. Now ev­ery year there seems to be a ma­ture buck that does the same. I hunt it care­fully and only on the fringes.
