what a bummer. it's interesting I've got a similar situation going. a beautiful 50 acre piece in brooklyn where the wife is "uncomfortable" with me hunting there. great deer, i've got two ladder stands and a couple of ground spots set up and i can't get my permission slip. very hard to get permission here I've found.
deer i've been seeing look ok. the one i got was very healthy just a late fawn in 2011 that didn't get bred. i'm going to try agian tommorrow afternoon, went out this morning, no sightings
