Found this picture of the 1st deer taken off the grass Air Strip I hunted for 20 years. All deer were shot. Over 500 Crossbow kills.
The owner of the farm told me You got your buck, you done.
Next year I went back and asked Russell if I could hunt again and he said ok. That afternoon I'm sitting over looking the runway and there's about 125+ deer on the air strip. Russell come flying in and had to buss the strip about 5 time so he could land. When I walked into his home to say thank you he said : Dave I don't Care what you do but want all them deer shot. I told him I would get our county deer guy John Decker to see about permits and I received 40 at a time. It was only me he allow and so it began. Raised 3 boys on venison and feed a lot of friends.

That’s a pile of deer, even spread out of the decades.

Land connections like that are few and far between.
I've know 2 other guys who have hunted air strips. Both had simular numbers.
Deer count for the area was 250 -300 deer psm. So it was morelike shooting fish in a bowl.
