Oh, that would be helpful to explain. Ok, well I live in Ohio, literally at the geographic center of the state, and I hunt two counties over to the southwest, which is one of the highest points in the state. I am hunting a 75 acre farm, owned by a friend and hunted by one other person. This years crop was beans. There are not a lot of acorns, but a few good trees at the northwest corner of the plot, on one of three cut trails that deer also use. There are three existing ladder stands on the property, and each backs up to good cover and overlooks the crops. Deer bed behind each of the stands. Two of them look good to me, and I plan to be the earliest one there to claim one based on the wind. Now, as my bow needs to be replaced, I am limited to firearms season for this year, which runs from November 26th to December 2nd. On this farm I have seen a few nice bucks in addition to a good amount of does. There is a ton of sign, and when out scouting used my maps (arial and topo) to map out locations and what I saw and what the wind is doing at the stand locations when I visit. Also there is a funnel from the adjoining farm that they use to go back and forth on one side. (One of the stands takes advantage of this, and it's my first stand choice). The opposite side backs up to an old quarry and the road. I guess an immediate question would be should I use a stand for gun season, or stick to the ground?
And then the moon, like to a silver bow new bent in Heaven
