Hey guys thanks for the help.
let me try to paint the picture better that way your all not unarmed in the situation.
Well the field is corn this year, but the field is to the south and the woods to the north, also the wind always comes from the south.
I have basically the worst hand in the game, but what I try to do is just get in early and on a easy access trail, climb high, and spray down with scent killer.
I then try to sit all day, most days I can, some I cant, but I do have paths mowed that lead to the stand and go around from the south side of it, but It just seems like I cant get anything going in the right direction.
Normally it takes 4-5 hours to see any deer come back in, it seems as if they just leave the property and come back later.
Also bordering the field is a 100 yard wide ravine, then on the other side is all of the jungle. I have tried hunting the ravine because its more open, but they don't leave the jungle until its too late to do anything.
Not quite the best option for mature buck hunting.
As for where they are coming from and going, like I said they bed everywhere, and where they are going is simple, to the corn. From any point they enter it, its all where they choose.
Things just don't work out to well.
The only thing I can think of is what I said, possibly taking away all cover except for one area of brush in some central area in the woods, possibly 5 acres but I am thinking larger in size. From there the deer will still use the rest of the area because there are still going to be small saplings all over, so they will still have a staging area, I just will only allow them to use a bedding point only.
I dont know, I feel like except for making a fence all round the field I have done everything I can, now I am trying to think outside the box, hopefully with your help we can come up with something before I trash the woods.
