I would leave it as is till you bush hog it. Native wild grasses weeds ,blackberries , honeysuckle, ect. will provide plenty of food and cover.If your stands are overlooking the trails and the edges you have a perfect setup.Try to stay out of there till you're ready to hunt it.Bad year for yellow jackets hope we get a early hard freeze to get them settled down.

I would strip mow it in successions. Maybe three year rotation.

It may require mowing and cutting the tallest trees now so that you can keep it under control now.

That is what I have been thinking. Want to maintain cover, but keep the trees under control. Eventually it may be converted back to pasture for cattle and it will be EXPENSIVE to hire a dozer to clear it back out.
