I need help,
I hunt in northwest ohio, and i hunt in a small 1 acre woods. The woods previously had a fire in the middle of it around 30 years ago. Signs of the ground being black still shows where it was. Beside the woods is a 1/2 acre water hole. We put a cam up in the woods and got a lot of pictures of deer, but the problem is that they are at night and they never stay in there until the morning. I have faith in this woods because I got pictures of some unique and monster buck that isn't something that is normal around this area. Would it be worth to thicken up this woods or should I find a new place because it's too small? If I can thicken the woods should I til the ground up where the fire was to get fresh good soil to the top? How should I make a choice cut in the woods since it is small, so I can get a lot of undergrowth? And there are some thick thorn bushes around the perimeter of the woods. How can I get them to spread rapidly, so I can get briers and thicker areas of thorns to grow?
