Yes, post an overhead image and we can roll from there.. as far as scouting.. theres not a whole lot you can do if its simply corn and timber.. Don't tromp in there and just see what you spook up. Keep the pressure low and when your ready to hang a set go in and scout the trails/sign and get the idea then hang your set in what appears to be the best looking spot. From there you can do trial and error and move stands and play the chess match of hunting. Whatever you do, don't push it.. The less pressure the better your opportunity will be. Just take it nice and slow and figure it out as you go. Trial and error is how to go about new properties and new terrain. We will help in any way we can.

I agree 100% but in order to find the best stop you are going to have to walk the property to see where the best place will be. Depending on how many properties you have you might be able let this one roll until the corn is cut (usally before the RUT) around me. And then Hunt the property..

But get an ariel and we all can help you. GOOGLE EARTH is the best imo.

Nice looking property. I placed some stands based off funnels and feild edges. Cameras r always the way to go once you've narrowed down a likely area. Just my opinion of where I would place my stands. Always have options for different winds. Nothing worse then ruining a great piece of land because of impatience. Take ur time and learn your property without molesting it. Good luck, keep me posted I'm curious what your efforts bring you this season.

I think he hit it on the head based on stand placement...Looks like there are 2 ponds on the property and another Tax ditch or something of that nature..But yeah that is a good looking property!

To many options with that other property. Just look at the map and find the funnels of narrow timber coming out of the big timber, corners of fields. A ridge coming into a field. I found in early season deer will come into the first shady spot in the field. Good luck.
