The same way you would a big piece. Find the part that
has the most deer sign, or that forces them to use a certain trail. If they bed down there you may be in for a tough time sneaking in and out without spooking them too much.

yea i own a small piece of land too.the only thing i have ever taken there though was a 3 point. but yea what i do is find the spot with the most deer signs and hunt it.

just some random advice that i have wanted to try on my 10 acres. i would like to try and clear everything out of there (brush trees and all)and plant a whole 10 acres of alfa alfa field. that would be pretty sweet i think.

Find the funnel leading in and out of the woodlot and hang a stand. Wait for the right wind and you'll be in business.

Takes time. Easy to ruin it for yourself so don't go tramping all over and stinking up the place. Several stands set in the spring is a good start. Takes me years to figure one out.

Hey I am in the same boat. I have live on 24 acres and about 10 - 12 is wooded and I hunt that. When I was looking for a spot I put a few bait piles out in different spots and waited to see where the most action was at. I also looked for some good deer trails were.
