I am going tomorrow either way. The weather is not what I wanted, but it is what I have, so I will work with it. I'm torn.

Option 1: go to Giles county, and hunt 20 acres that I have not hunted all year. I have never seen much buck sign on the property, and deer generally just travel across it. In years when people hunt the property next to it, I see much more deer movement, but I don;t know if the place next to it is being hunted. 2010 it was, last year it was not to my knowledge.

Option 2: stay in M'boro (Rutherford Co) and hunt my land. I have hunted it (in different spots) 6 times since the day before Thanksgiving, and 10 times total since the bow opener.

Depends in what kind of sign you have at your place... This time of year I like to hunt different areas vs what I hunt early season before and during rut.. I your looking for a buck best place in my opinion for late season is going to be close to food and cover/thicket... Rut is over with for the mos part now and almost all the acorns are gone now... Hard to catch a mature buck out moving unless its around thick cover...

You have a point there, I'm over in western part of middle tenn.. I've had the worst year as far as the rut went and hunting it... I've been sticking close to cover the last week or so and have been seeing some deer.. Only deer I have been seeing at my other stands are all at nite (via trail cam) or the 1st hour of light and mostly doe groups... I mite be in minded to try your other property you haven't hunted especially if your not having luck on your land.. Change things up a bit..

I do this sometimes when I'm trying to choose a stand. I'll take a coin and say "God, heads is this one, tails is that one, you pick." Flip the coin and that's where I'll go. Works as well as me picking myself.
