And please...Don't hunt right by someone's house within sight of their horse pasture. That's a horse trail not a game trail. The dogs bark at you from inside the fence because you are too close to it in their view...and you look suspicious. There's lots of woods out there...seriously...try hiking a bit...or even driving down the road away from the houses. You will see more deer when you are farther away from my father in law running his chainsaw. (This is my new pet peeve this year) :smack:

Now...for a more helpful comment....most of the food plots if not all of them...are crap this year. They did a poor job prepping and planted way too early. Your better bet is to try by the river or saddles as others have said. Lots of acorns and persimmon trees in places. Being willing to hike a bit will be of benefit. And if you are running late getting to your stand...don't fly down the road...they like to grade and gravel it frequently...and you might end up in a ditch. (we've pulled one out so far this season...saw tire tracks from another in the mud this week).
I love living out here most of the year....Truly. :wink:

After the first two weekends hunters usually thin out Saddles and creek bottoms are your best bet. There are a lot of woods out there. Good luck and be safe. I'm going out there Saturday morning. Not gonna hunt close to the horses or houses though. If I wanted that I would be at holland bottoms. LOL
