I finally found a new lease, I'm pretty excited about. It's not huge, 45 acres roughly, but the crop planted this year is corn, so it should be a deer magnet.

I have my own ideas of how this season should move along, but I'm just wondering what everyone else thinks for stand placements and possible improvments. The property lines I drew in are just my free hand drawings and might be slightly off but not by more than a 100m or so. If you have any questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer them.

Here's the overhead view, the woods surrounding the planted corn are thick and an wide selection of oaks, maples and beech trees are mature and growing along the edges:


The large scale topographical map:


And a blown-up topo, I added the area corn is planted:



I'll post what I think I get I let some of you guys give your ideas and thoughts. I am currently talking to the property owner to the south and east for retreival rights.

The back end of the corn field that joins more woods would be the first place I scouted, I'm willing to bet thats goona be your best section.

In addition to what Easy 45 said, look under the O in Corn on your topo map, seems to be a draw that comes up/down from the field.

I do think that they'll walk up that large spur into the corn.

I also like the smaller spur coming up into the tall grass to the south of the planted corn. That wooded finger is mostly big old oak trees.

I zoomed in and right behind that house was a trampoline. That's where I'd hunt.
