Hey guys i have been fartin around in my hunting area and have found a couple places were i want to put stands although i want to put up 2 stands i dont think i will and will probably only end up putting one up. well i have a few choices and i want you guys to tell me what my best bet would be for downing a big buckduring the archery season or during the gun season if i dont get one during the archery season.
1. I could put it beside a dried up sometimes wet pond i was scouting by it and found a giant rub in the pond and alot of other high rubs around the rubs all lokked fairly fresh plus this is close to where i killed my buck in the 2005 season. I can see a good distance and there is a an old stone quarry were a 14 point was supposedly killed in the 2005 season also? And also above the creek on the other side od the pond there is a row of evergreens that have scrapes below them
2. Theres some thick fairly far away from the other stand part the thick is very big but their are trails through it and some older rubs not sure about if there fresh or not? some people told me that the thicker the better for a deer season i would probably only be bow hunting there because of the housing plan parellel to the thicket. Actuall i was scouting the other day and ran in to some deer in that area but i also ran in to the deer at the 1st stand idea.
3.There is some thick that is really close to my hunting entering spot were a guy told me he saw a buck with a giant thick rack during the 2005 and has a creek going through it and there are a few rubs there cant tell if there fresh but there are trails by it and thers a lot of cut down timber around it too.
please tell me wich stand location would be my best bet nd wich would be my second best bet too
