Which one does everyone prefer to hunt? I would choose a water source like a creek and try and find some acorn trees near by iv had success with that combo a couple times.

As close to a bedding area as I can get without putting to much pressure on it is where in the early season I most prefer to be.Now if that bedding area is close in proximity to oaks all the better.

Cant beat setting up on heavy trails by corn or bean fields. Acorns can be good as well.

If you're in a dry area, water source. If you're whereI am, near acorns. If you're in Kansas, near fields.

Hunt the best food source for the are you're in.

I chose crop fields simply because they are close to the areas I hunt...not necessarily because I key on them specifically.

How about this one......I hunt in a river bottom on a Hay feild with a Oak ridge on the back side of the 7 acre field. Oh I forgot to mention that there is Corn on the other side of the Oaks!!!

Due to the heat, I prefer travel areas or water holes. But down here in the south, usually ac'erns and water aren't too far apart.
