Default Burn Areas vs ..

New member here, I apologize if there is already a thread.

Some basic info for the situation

New to Coastal GA as well

Habitat includes burn areas, swamps, pines, pine/hardwood mix and creeks.

My thought is to hunt the pine/hardwood from late Oct. - Late November. I plan to look for the biggest scrape lines and rubs I can find and set up shop there.

Then December till end of season set up in the burned areas\thickets around a solitary buck bed.

Seeking insight, improvements, or knowledge relating to my plan.

Sounds good to me, too.


next season, I'd be thinking the new growth might be the ticket.

I walked around some today and this stuff is thick. I have so many places to hunt its wma something over 100k acres. Ive noticed a lot of deer tracks, and some buck beds right off the dirt roads. Im wondering should i hike into these pine thickets that connect into hardwoods a mile or two from the roads (there is not a lot of hardwood)? Im just a little overwhelmed how much land there is.

You're already on your way to figuring it out. You've identified bedding areas, now see if you can locate the food or at least direction to it.


An aerial photo might help.
