How would you hunt this place

Recommended Posts

Just bought a new hunting property and I’m looking for advice on how to hunt it. I’m in Afghanistan right now and will be getting home about a week before bow season starts so I don’t have the benefit of getting any scouting in. I have only seen the place through pictures and FaceTiming with my wife while she walked the place with the realtor. 

So anyway, I am trying to game plan so I can get some stands set up as soon as I get home and get ready to hunt. I’m thinking a stand between those two creeks facing the south would be a good spot, the creeks should create a nice pinch point. And maybe a blind in some of those cedars to the east of the creek facing the wood line to the west. Any advice?

Thanks for the welcome. I was actually a fairly active member here during my first deployment in 2011 under the username ryan1990. Haven’t been on here since I got home from that one though and couldn’t remember my password or what email I used back then.

First off Thank You for your service!!

Looking at second photo, I see at about 4 'oclock you have a great clearing for a food plot. Im thinking just up and to left 11 'oclock is where creeks come together you talked about?  May be a good starting point, I'd walk the creeks and find the crossings before hanging a stand.  Not sure what direction access is and  predominate wind?  Also is there any ag fields nearby?  Let us know how things go.

Thank you for the advice. And yes, there is an ag field approximately 500 yards to the north west, or to use the clock reference, 2 o’clock. The timber narrows down and runs right along the edge of the field and the west branch of the creek runs right through the edge of the field as well, in the woodline.
