Its called the K.I.S.S syndrom, Keep It Simple Stupid!! You said you hunt cut corn fields, baited stands, or sit in the woods on well used trails. What else is there to hunt?

Right now I'm hunting a powerline in between a standing cornfield and their bedding. Last night a saw 7 bucks. The biggest didn't go more than 110, but sooner or later a nice one will pop his head out.

What I am noticing is that now the a acorns are falling like a damn blizzard around here the deer movement is down. They don't need to move as much there is so many acorns on the ground! So with that said I'm gonna concentrate on the hardwoods(oaks)

The tactics start before the early season when you watch where the deer like. When the early season starts, go there.

Says the guy who thinks its safe to tie a rope around his waist and use it as his "safety harness"

Food sources, funnel areas and bedding. For the most part, these areas are pretty stable throughout the year and that is where the deer will remain around.
