I decided to start a thread documenting one of the most difficult and complex properties I have ever worked on. It has become over time, one of my best hunting properties, but still needs a tremendous amount of work to realize it's potential. This place I affectionately call "The Pit." The pit received it's name because about 1/3 of the property used to be a sand & gravel pit. Another 1/3 used to be a landfill in the 1930s & 40s. The final 1/3 is an impenetrable swamp. I first acquired the property in 2008 as 63 acres of tangled jungle, as nothing had been done with the property since the gravel pit closed in 1978. I hunted it only a couple times that year, as most of it was so thick you couldn't see 15 yards in any direction......I managed to shoot one mammoth doe.
