I just acquired permission to hunt a small farm today, about 500 acres. I have been trying to make contact with the land owner for many weeks but the farmers are pretty busy this time of year. Finally caught up with him today. He was nice enough to show me around the property a bit. I saw 2 scrapes, no rubs, but many deer trails through the property. All the crops are already off. The woods are very thick with undergrowth. My question is how should I tackle this so late in the season? The rut is right around the corner and I know very little about the activity on this property. Should I just concentrate on the edges of the woods where the trails are the heaviest? I found a nice green bottom in the middle of the property with quite a bit of deer sign, I was thinking of putting my stand there where all the trails come together. What do you think? This private land thing is all new to me, I have hunted public land all my life.
