I'm going to start another habitat thread on the property I acquired a couple of years ago. This is three pieces of land that totals roughly 21 acres. I may also have the opportunity to add more to the north and west someday, however, I can already hunt that land too. Here are a few facts: The adjoining land to the east is hunted reasonably hard. But I only see one ladder stand about 60 yards off my property line. I have access to lots of family land to the north and west that is not hunted. I've been turkey hunting here for years but never deer hunted here. It is loaded with both turkey and deer. Some big deer have come from the area in the past. I'm building a tower blind at the moment. It will be a hybrid blind that I designed that will serve as both a hunting blind and cabin. It will be 12. x 12. with a 4' deck on three sides on the top level. There will be three levels with a poured floor. Foot height on the top level will be 16+'. It will have a shed roof. The edge of the little inset where the blind is being built is on a pinch point. From the edge of the field you have about 50 yards into the woods and then it drops off steeply to a creek below. When I cut shooting lanes today, it was a mess of deer manure, beds and rubs on the points. Even though there is a bluff directly behind the blind, I have one spot that gradually slops to the creek and an old road bed. With some dozer work a guy could drive to the creek. However, I likely won't do that. But it is an easy walk. The fields are in soybeans ever year. This property is very different than my other place. There are no sweetgums.. I have no place for an orchard - unless I do it in the farming fields - and I won't do that. Field view: Down the bluff - taken from the ground about 50 yards behind the blind. One of three shooting lanes cut today. Many more to come. More to come soon. I cut trees for 9 hours today, so need a rest.
