Deer can do the most damage when the crop is young and the only reason I responded is because I have seen some farmers take advantage of our local fish and game by reporting loses that were way to exaggerated and instead of investigating what has happened on there farm they just write a check. I appreciate you responding back to my comment. One thing about you being able to harvest that many deer is that you should have some really good kill data on your loads your using. Just keep hunting like you are it's keeping you young.Just reporting what I was told about the money amount. This one field is huge, over mile long and close to half mile wide at one point. Borders a Creek so there are fingers of timber along it. He had soy beans planted and they ate around three hundred plus acres while the plants were still young. Cost of 1st planting and then a repeat adds up. I'm not a farmer, don't know jack about it. Just shoot what I'm asked to shoot. He farms land on the other side of the creek as well. He could have been talking about all the property he farms.
