    I dont have one anymore. Last fall they did a selective cut and unfortunately it changed everything on me so I'm basically starting over. I have some general ideas but for the most part the cutting is done. All the cutting was from the road in about 40-80 acres so I have a feeling to get to some of the better areas i'm going to have some long walks to the stands I want to sit.

    .... man i hate walking in the dark

    This is my best stand it had wheat to the east of it last year and beans this year. It's got corn on the other 3 sides there's a small natural watering hole about 20 yards to the west of the stand there's a bedding area 60 yards south of the stand and there's a trail half way between the stand and the field to the east that they travel to get to the food and water source its prime hunting ImageUploadedByBowhunting.com Forums1469137381.044590.jpg

    It's kinda funny, but I don't really have one stand that stands out over the others for killing deer. I've killed deer out of most of the stands I've set on my property, or could have had a choose to release an arrow. I have a new one that I hung last year that might change that as I had multiple encounters with quality bucks out of it last year. Most of my stands are on edges between timber and food sources. This new stand location seems to be right in the middle of a travel route that takes them down to a bedding area near my creek. It was pretty dynamite in the morning. It also sits up on the hill near the edge of the property and affords me quite the view of deer traveling to and from neighboring timber stands.

    My best stand is used a lot and the whole season is usually good... It's at the top of a funnel with trails from all directions leading to this point.
    I had my Daughter in a tree next to me, and it's now her spot... I hope she connects this year

    This was her 1st deer up close in the woods...
    2 8's came in... 1st one was right under us and wouldn't give a shot.

    2nd one chased off the 1st....swing and a miss, but so proud she took the shot. I stopped him thinking she had a better angle, but he was behind the tree :(

    It's remote. I've never seen anyone hunt by it on the public land. Does congregate in the thick bedding. Bucks come in hard over about a 3 day period.

    Found another area like this during the offseason. Hope it gives me similar results.

    Heard my neighbor haying the pasture on the bench above my AO, which means I'll be sharing my ambush site with 23 bovines this fall. I've heard of giants camouflaging themselves by bedding down with cattle; maybe that'll happen in my situation.
    Either way, that little token heard historically moves all over the mountain within the constraints of barb wire, so...I'm not gonna have a nervous breakdown over it, but-I'd prefer he left his cows on the other (dead) side of the road.
    His property-his choice...
