There is one stand I hung in

There is one stand I hung in 99'. It produces every year. When my son started hunting he kind of claimed that stand for his favorite. We both still hunt the stand. This year we shot our bucks 2 days apart from that stand again. This is my son's 10th year of hunting. He has taken 5 bucks and 4 of those bucks have been from that stand. The other buck he shot was about 50 yards away from that stand in a home made ground blind. I have probably taken 6 or 7 bucks out of that stand as well. We have also taken a very latge number of doe's out of that stand. There have been a few occasions where we have taken 2 out of that stand in the same day.

That is exactly what I am

That is exactly what I am talking about, Man of the Fall!

Now if we could just figure out why some locations work better than others, we might gain an edge!

You bring up an interesting

You bring up an interesting question.  Is it the terrain, the food source or is it perhaps genetics?  By that I mean that there is something imprinted into the deer in that area that keeps them there and traveling those routes that take them past the stand?  You'd think after you killed the deer or deers the deer would no longer use it, but they do.

Maybe we should start a poll

Maybe we should start a poll or survey that allowed posters to list their favorite stand locations and what attributes these areas had - such as dense cover nearby, food sources, water etc and see if we could reach some conclusions!
