Default New hunting land

Hi guy's I'm new to this board but I wanted to see if I could get some opinions from everyone. I just aquired a tract of land through a lease program from a local paper supplier and have set up a huntingclub. Currently I've limited the# of members to6.I have an arial photo of the place but haven't had the chance to really look over the land yet because the woods are really thick, I have walked the roads that run through the property. It's 163 acres square surrounded by private land to the North and East and Public land to the South and West of me. I plan on talking to the land owners in the next month or two and let them now we've leased this land. What I'm wondering is if anyone can give me some tips as far as good spots to check out just by looking this arial photo or any opinions on this land by looking at this photo I saw plenty of sign when I checked it out and I'm really excited about the opportunity to havea solid place to huntfor many years to come. Most of the tree's on the property are about 10-15 years old, about 8-9 iches in diameter just big enough to hang a stand on. I would say they logged it about 10-15 years ago. This pic is from 2003 which is the newest one I could find. There may be some thick spots with the young growth but I think it will thin out in the coming years.

While anaerial photo is a great for information, it is only part of the puzzle. Spend time locating trails, old scrapes, hooking and possible feeding areas and try to figure the most likely bedding areas. Then position your stands accordingly. The timber companies we lease from will let us maintain food plots. It may be beneficial to you to talk to them about plots. I personally think you have too many hunters for 163 acres, but maybe it will work out. Welcome to the board.

thats right. scout scout scout and then scout some more. get a good feel of the land hands on while you have time this summer and get ready. unless you hunt it everyday its gonna take a couple years to figure everything out.
