I'm hoping they are just camera shy.

I guess I should explain a little, huh?

The bushes and scrub that you see in the pics is exactly what the cleared/plot area looked like 2 months ago. Iscouted in this area and there are trails and sign everywhere, it's just SO thick, it's practically unhuntable. I wanted to find a way to hunt it. So I went in with a tractor and bushogged some shooting lanes. I know that for this season it might not produce much after doing this, but I'm really hoping this will be a great spot for future seasons. I still have my other stand location but I've been trying to leave it alone as much as possible until I get up there to hunt. It's on the slope of a creek bank next to some of that thick stuff likein the pics, and it's surrounded by white oaks. I had a camera in there last year,and I think I was disturbing the area too much. My two areas are about a mile apart.

I just had to try something new and different. Nearly everytime one of my lease members (mostly gun hunters)sees a deer it's coming out of and going toward that thick stuff. I scouted in areas away from everyone else as much as possible and really never could come up with a stand or blind location where I could see farther than 5 or 6 feet. I know that the deer are moving through that stuff, I just have to find a way to bowhunt them. I finally came up with the idea of making my own area. Hopefully it will work out for me one day.

Just checkin in! Had login problems for a while. Looks like the computer is on the fritz. Season opens this Saturday (10/6)... hoping to put the girlfriend on a deer of some sort. Dove and goose hunting was good in the early season.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Chase,
I'm using a cobra sidewinder sight and I'm hunting in heavy woods and have no problems with seeing the pins. I'm also using the QAD rest and like it alot.

Sounds like a good choice. I think there is sooooo much good stuff out there that it just has alot to do with personal preferance. Went out last evening and had a shot at a doe but she was too young [1 1/2yr]. A mature doe was hung up in the brush 25 yrds from me but I just couldn't get a clean shot. Oh well. At least I saw deer the first night out. I need to take 2 more doe out of the herd this year to try to get the buck to doe ratio right.
