On a tract like that, you might be able to hang 2 or 3 stands (for different winds) and cover quite alot of it. Just get in there and sit; you'll learn pretty quickly how they move.

Congratulations on getting your own piece of ground!

You probably need to know more about your neighbor's land than your own. What is on your neighbors land in the way of food and cover? Will they be crossing your property to get to your neighbor's corn field or to a clear cut? Also, What is missing in the area that your property has to draw deer?

My 32 acre lease is surrounded on 3 sides by considerable no-hunting-allowed land and has not been hunted since at least 1997. Deer in groups of 10 to 17 cross the lease to the farmland using two travel corridors. The odd 1->4 deer are found elsewhere around the property. However, those 'elsewhere' places are consistent-you can nearly always find deer in those places.

So, as many have said, wait till the wind is in your favor and enter very carefully. You need to scout mostly by just sitting and watching. I'd keep a round in the chamber because boring can become exciting in a very short time.

Good Luck.
