I talked to my hunter this afternoon. He's looking forward to this project like one would expect. I've been considering talking to some other area landowners/farmers that I know to secure some extra hunting opportunities but Tom says we're good and involving more people only adds 2x more problems. He's probably right and I reckon we do have some dependable locations. Maybe I need to be looking at help with food and lodging. Motel rooms fill up a year in advance of the regular rifle season so I may have to give up my bedroom but that's OK, too.

It's beginning to come together. I'm meeting a local woman tomorrow morning to check out her "rental cabin" for my hunter's use. I was expecting to be able to house him here but Grouch Attack balked and that's the end of that. I pursued a couple of alternatives and the "cabin" seems to be the best overall option. Only 4 miles from my house so several miles closer than the next option. No "third party" stuff going on, I'm working directly with the owner and she's willing to give me a break on the cost. If the hunter isn't comfortable staying alone, I can camp out there, too.
Granddaughter is getting into the act. She's proposed re-caulking/repainting the "deer houses" so they look nice and are less drafty. She might even free hand some decorations. I suspect she will ensure there'll be no shortage of cookies and snacks available for the hunt.

One step closer: lodging secured. Maybe can work in a small friends and family community dinner one evening.
It was a tradition for my Uncle to host a friends and family bonfire and carry in supper on the first night of deer season. Sitting around the fire telling the stories of the day was special for kid too young to take part and later for a successful hunter relating his experiences to the other hunters.

Update: I spoke with my hunter this evening and we finalized some of our plans. He's been having trouble finding the MDC license site so I sent a link(I hope it worked anyway).
I'm meeting him 1/2 way and bringing him up on 11/14 so we can have 11/15 to get the rifle and other stuff sorted out. He wants to use his digital viewer which I have no experience with so that will take some practice. I also found that he has some other commitments that may limit his hunting time. If we're not successful, his tag will still be good during the antlerless segment of our season.
I'm seeing lots of deer and the youth season in a couple weeks will provide some much needed scouting. Unless things go terribly wrong, our crops will be harvested and the deer will be working the turnips rather than spread across the wide open soybean fields.
The deer houses have a fresh coat of paint, the cabin for the hunter is reserved, he's working on his license, I can almost walk sort of normally, and the deer are getting frisky. It's not perfect and it's not a done deal but it's getting closer.

Glad to hear it's coming together. You are a more patient man than you come across on here. Kudos to you.

RE being patient: I just allocate my very limited amount of patience to certain areas. People who are willing to try to overcome seemingly overwhelming challenges get a good share.
