Recently lucked out and a spot opened up on a friend's lease. For a few weeks now I've been stewing about a particular location. It is elevated and overlooks a clear cut below that also has a finger of smaller hardwoods maybe 20-30 yards wide extending into the clear cut maybe 100 yards. The only place I could get to that has (a) good climber trees and (b) I wouldn't be spewing my scent over half or more of the clear cut is this particular location. It looks great. Just one problem - maybe 20-30 yards behind is the old logging road and I can expect some hunters to be walking down that back to camp at lunch/late morning. I think I could position a bit farther down the break line but I'm not sure how much farther and still maintain that nice elevation to overlook that clear cut and finger. |
Would you pass on it because of that old logging road or go ahead and put up a stand?
