Analyze my hunting land

4 posts in this topic

Take a look at this arial pic and let me know where you would hang a stand. The yellow circles represent deer stands or ground blinds. The magenta dots are well used deer trails and the red dots are rub lines. The blue circled areas are swamps that are pretty much dry. This is a 160 acre farm planted with corn this year. The wind is usually from the NW or North. hunting111.jpg

Looks really promising. except there is a lot of land on the west edge you aren't covering. But a picture is just a picture and no offense 160 A is a good chunk of land but without good management practices (shooting does and passing on little bucks) it is not anything special. If I were you I would work the ground a little and make some food plots maybe 1/2 A size and spread them around to get the deer to travel and put up some trail cams in the future and see what you have and before going out hunting kinda have a feel for what you have wondering around and gave a game plan for what you plan and want to have happen on the land. How many hunters hunt this chunk of land? How good are your neighbors do they shoot anything that is brown? Are those fields grass or are there crops in them? Just curious but the tree stands are all right next to a big opening do you strictly rifle hunt? Are these stands perminant? Not saying open spots are bad but sometimes when it is windier a portable treestand that is up high in the woods isn't that bad of a spot to be esecially whent it is cold out. But all in all don't look bad and like every chunk of land it has potential.

In the event none of the permanent stands are not productive consistently I would start near the intersection area of the main trail and the west end of the rubs between the two large swamps that are dry.If the swamps get wetter later on near the opener the area seems to be somewhat of a natural bottle neck zone that could be productive.Good luck
