Scouting yesterday and encountered this area of bare ground. I have been through this part of the woods before, last time last winter and never saw this.
As you can see from the surrounding woods, there is underbrush that is fairly tight. Then the ground opens up and finally there is this large patch of bare dirt with not even hardly a leaf on it, about 15'x15'. Same overhead cover. Although adjacent to a major deer trail, there are no tracks of any kind in it. Way too big for a turkey dusting spot.
Other than Bigfoot's backyard, any idea what this is from?

I have a similar spot that I've always wondered about. No clue what makes it that way.

Would be a great location for a trail-camera!

Probably just from where a UFO landed.

I ran across the same thing last year on opening day of bow season, got to my stand and saw nearly the same thing. In the middle of the bare spot was also a tent... and a burned out campfire, and some pots and pans... Spent almost $100 on No Trespassing signs. I don't think mine was aliens... at least not space-aliens.

I think if this was the case he would be able to see some signs of clearing or human activity. Most people aren't too smart when it comes to covering their own tracks.

There are spots like that close to my family's place is east tn. Thay used to be strip mines around there and I figured it was them.

I have no idea why but places such as that appear now and then. I have one stand from which I have killed 39-deer in 13-years. It overlooks just such a patch. I have never seen a deer set foot in it. All the deer circles to the side of it and pass within 15-yards of my stand.
