You've had an article published in D&DH Magazine. That makes you an expert in my book. I appreciate your input and everyone else's.
The inside corners listed as B & C on JPH's post are on the neighbor's property. He has platform stands just inside the treeline at both those locations. I don't think he bowhunts, and I've never seen him out there during gun season, but, he's the one that let me drive across his land last year to pick up my bow kill (I dragged the deer out just north of the pond). Until I get to know him a tad better, I've tried to stay away from encroaching on his boundaries.
I hunted #4 pretty hard as an observation stand last year, and I've found some good rubs on large trees in the area of the inside corner JPH shows as A. I'd like to hang my lock on or take my climber into that area this year, but, so far, the bull pasture keeps me from easy entry/exit. I need to clear myself a walking path just north of the bull pasture fence, but then , depending on wind, I'll still do some stinking up going in. Maybe I should see if I can walk up the creek from the southwest corner of the bull pasture. That would still give me a steep bank to climb, but it would be scent free and quiet. I'd still have to deal with a deer getting into the bull pasture after a hit but, I'll deal with that if and when it happens. Last year being my first year hunting this piece of property, I figured I'd hunt the stands that my predecessors left for me. All the stands are overlooking the intersections of at least 2 trails, and I have seen quite a few deer. I don't think any of those guys who built the stands were bow hunters. This is my sophomore year on this property and I'm not working right now, so I can hunt everyday if I so choose.
I'm posting one picture of what keeps me out of the bull pasture and another of the bank where I'd have to exit the creek to get to A. I've had a trail camera overlooking that area for almost a year now. That area is the the main creek crossing for the deer in that area.
