Hey guys...I'm new here...and fairly new at hunting. My parents have a 5 acre chunk that is 1 wide and 5 deep. The house/barn, etc is up at the very front. 2/3s of the property was a horse pasture. The horses were gone about 15 years ago now. The fences have fallen and the back chunk of the property has become mostly overgrown. The VERY back along the property line is VERY (100+ year) mature Oak. It's a pretty thick, then gets to the newer growth of Aspen, which is VERY thick, and long grass. It's easily over grown 20 yards over the old fence line, more in some areas. The entire back section of the property is surrounded by at least some sort of tree cover. Basically along all the edges, where the fences were, there is a pretty good tree line. The center of the 2 sections of pastures is still a grassy meadow. Surrounding area; Next door to the south is a Church with a large grass field, and lake front. East and west farm fields. Corn in both fields. To the north is Clover/hay and a farm, east of there is a large 30ish acre wooded area. There is hunting pressure in that wooded area during the gun season. There has never been any real hunting pressure on my parents property. Last year I had what I joked was a super highway through the very back property line area. There was litterally a path 16" wide that forked off to a few areas into the thicker part of the wooded area, and meadow. This year there it's overgrown and shows not evidence that they have even walked through. I set up my deer stand in a LARGE oak in the back last year, and could only hunt Sunday afternoon/evenings. I ranged it and the property is 70 yards wide... which with my stand in the center, put me in good shooting range both directions. I never saw anything other than squirrels. This year I finally got a trail cam. About 2/3s of the way down the property I found a Plum, Crab Apple, and Apple tree all within 15 yards of each other. I set up my trail cam on the Plum tree on the 4th of Sept. On the 11th I checked it and found 100 pics. So I sat down and checked them out. In the pics were a 10pt, 8pt, 6pt, a spike, and from what I can tell only 1 doe. I got VERY excited and bought a license. After that weekend I noticed the Apples, Crab Apples and Plums had pretty much all fallen and were pretty rotten. Since then I've gotten a picture/video of ONE doe. None of the bucks have come through at all. I made a mock scrape a few yards from my trail cam, with no results, but it has only been a week. Here is my worry.... Is that hunting spot near the fruit trees only going to be good for opening weekend, and is that only a maybe? Opening bow was the 17th this year. With a lack of sign since the 11th of Sept, should I be looking for another spot to hunt? I have a ground blind and a stand. The trees near the fruit trees are all WAY to small (largest is maybe 12" across) to put a stand in, so I bought the ground blind. Obviously things change with the Rut... but if there is only one Doe in the area, they probably won't move through this small area. Should I pick up some Doe urine and try to scent heavy in the area to try and draw the Bucks back in? Hopefully using some doe in Estrus may help during the rut as well...but I don't want to try to rely on only that. Especially since the wind typically would not help draw them from the North East. Today the wind is from the west, last year it was either from the south west or north west. Any advise is great guys... Thanks!
