Thanks Blake. I did get set up over the weekend, but now exactly where I had intended. It turns out the land owners son is also hunting out there (not an experienced hunter). He placed a stand near the inside corner of the creek, probably because it's a shorter walk more than anything. Also, there is a big home-made ladder stand in the middle cross-roads area. Seeing this, I headed all the way to the northern tip and set up a beautiful spot there. There are heavy runs coming out the north side of the bedding area into the corn (which is west of where I set up). Also, one heavy run between the two wood sections I'm set up over, running north south. There are a huge set of tracks walking the edge of the tree line. I'm excited to get out there!!! Great cover in this tree...just seems perfect.
My only internal debate is when to hunt it. Do you recommend hunting it while the corn is up? Wait until run starts kicking in? Or hunt it opening weekend?!? I fear is that Mr. Big could be anywhere in the corn...and I don't want him to wind me.
