    Asking for thoughts on how to manage my6 acres in SE Oklahoma for deer hunting: heavily wooded with both pines andhardwoods. It borders national forest land, so although its private, the deer are public land deer. I have a heavily used game trail,and a couple areas of natural open clear canopy.

    I plan on habitat improvement, clearing the thick brush, and cutting down some un-nedded pines to open up canopy.

    Trail cams last year showed a couple nice bucks and plenty of doe. I have not hunted it yet.

    Should I put put a couple mock scrapes, and/or plant some forest blend clover,etc...? All ideas welcomed. Thanks inadvance

    Pics would help but off the cuff I would run the basics
    Find primary corner (if main wind is SW then corner would be NE)
    Find the perfect tree for your style then cut a path going by said stand location and thickin everything that is not in the path you cut via hinge. Good luck
