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?
