    I just found out about an opportunity to get some time on this public land and because of this I have not been able to scout it. Any advice on where to start? Maybe a place to sit with a better change for traffic? I would be hunting sunrise to sunset and be parking at the A. The public land is in blue and boarded by new development construction in a semi rural area. Thanks for any advice in advance. Let me know if there is any other info I can dig uo to help. Feel free to pm me also.

    Taking into consideration I know nothing about the property, such as wind direction, vegetation in the area, etc...and the fact I'm not an expert, here is where I would probably look to put one up. Just my opinion though, good luck with it!

    I like the Western (if left is west) edge between what appears to be the swamp and the road/houses to the west. Also the same area but on the East could be good! Like stated though I know nothing of this place.

    If there's crops in the field to the lower-left (question mark) i'd try these funnels. They might be feeding in the fields (ag and uncut fields) and moving through funnels to bedding cover in public land area.

    I would try the lower half of the property where it is more secluded and close to the ag field whether it be corn, beans , maybe even a sod field, idk. Good Luck. Let us know if you find a good spot. Also what state is this in.
