    I just got permission to hunt a piece of land. Since it is mid-season I do not want to make crazy changes to the land so I can hunt it this year. The land is a mixture of hardwoods and pines that are very thick with undergrowth, what do you suggest I do to have some success with this type of land?

    If it's just an annual thing, do a little scouting and set a popup.
    If it's more "long term", take your time. It may take a season or two to figure out travel routes, bedding areas and food sources.
    A neighbor gave me access to his property. Three hundred twenty acres (hald section)! It took me two years to figure out how to hunt the place. Now it's my most productive place.

      Explore the property and hunt at the same time. Have patience and don't feel bad if it is not productive this year. While exploring be ready to take anything that you might stumble across. Good luck!

        Go to www.biggamelogic.com, register a free account, friend me (i'm bioguy on there too), create a camp, and invite me into it. I work with deer for a living and have become pretty good at picking out good stand locations just by looking at maps. If I see some obvious places to put stands, I'll draw a layer on the map showing where I think you should scout for stand locations. Sound good?

          The best time to explore a new property is from January to March. You can see a long distance and you can find plenty of old deer sign. Like active deer trails, old buck rubs, a water source and old scrapes.

          Walking around during hunting season will only push big game over to your neighbor's property.
          Don't forget to give the property owner something nice for Christmas and put up posted signs they state No Trespassing!

              Good advice all around, thanks guys. Firstbubba: this is looking to be a long term piece of land that is about 75 acres surrounded by 300 acres of farming/wooded areas.
