My "island" ladder stand is in the middle of a bean field.  I might ask the farmer if I can pay him not to harvest the entire field this next season.  Shot a nice 8pt out of it on opening day this last year.

I "shot" the fawn during gun season.  It walked by at about 15 yards, so I decided just to snap a pic.

I think you put a few of these up last year.. I remember because I was thinking to myself that those are some GREAT spots and plots!

Nice plots....Man I can't wait to get out there!!!!  I'm going to do some overseeding of my Alpha Rack clover plot with some Whitetail Institute Extreme this weekend.  I don't believe I quite have the pH in there yet and Extreme works well in soil with a lower pH.

Wanderer ----- Real nice looking plot . I hope your effort paid off for you . Charlie A said to make them longer than wide and sort of hourglass shape then set a stand in the narrower part . Yours looks fine .
 
msbadger ...... I said Lucidol as you had lived in Piffard but "flats" made me think of Groveland / Sonyea . After moving from Piffard when I was 7 , we lived up on Groveland Hill . Before they built the Mt Morris Dam , the Groveland Flats would flood every year . I started deer hunting in the big woods behind Craig Colony . Never got a shot there but there were some big bucks in those woods & gullys .

Wanderer...Excellant job...that is a nice looking spot you have there..
 
Fasteddie...it was Groveland station for me...yes ..remember all the migrating birds when the flats flooded?...use to see how far we could ride our bikes through it...Gram was a nurse at Craig for years until she retired and granpa RR engineer for the Erie Lackawana(sp)...Mr. B built the gym for the prison there when it first opened...looks like we've been following each other around the genesee valley....lol
