Default Small lots or acreage.

What is the smallest area that you hunt with success? Mine would be a
pine lot about 150x100 yards in a suburban area, deer travel through in the morning and the evening like clock work and its only 3 miles from my house.

Sometimes that's all it takes. Sounds like you did your homework on it...take some pics from your stand this fall to share.

I hunt several 5-10 acre lots in suburbia. I've had good success and see lots of deer, but I would love nothing more than to have access to some large parcels. There's just so many more stand options.

I had a spot like that. The woods may have been 60 yards wide and approx 150 yards long. it was a money spot travel route. I miss that spot. Matt had a spot like that in his home town too it got overrun....that is a long story but we have since moved.

My best spot last year was about 40 yards wide by 150 yards long, the deer had no other way through there, can you say honey hole!

I PERSONALLY PREFER LARGE ACREAGE. IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO MANAGE A HERD PROPERLY.
