    Should I hunt this place and if so, how?

    So my dad has 16 aces that was supposed to be corn this year. Well apparently the farmer as dad says, "the farmer sucks" and this is the result. A pic from my tree stand.
    [

    About 5-8 feet tall THICK. Stuff. Literally some of the thickest stuff i have seen. I can't even see trails in and out of there but quite a few signs on the perimeter.

    Here is an arial shot of the property. Only able to place a stand here is marked here, I have had this stand here for literally 4 years I think I have hunted this place a total of 6 times in those four years.



    I am thinking this could be a decent spot for the rut as I am thinking this could be a great bedding area I don't have any cameras up, and like I said I don't hunt it much.


    If you think it's a legit spot, how would you attack it? I know it's late but still my areas to hunt are limited to cut bean and corn fields as we speak so this being a prime bedding area I think it could be a nice spot in a couple weeks.

    What are you all thinking.

    I would agree with the bedding thought. From the aerial photo (great app BTW, I have it on my phone and love it!) It looks like this fields sets/connects a few different small plots of woods and I would think this would be a good travel corridor for them. Am I understanding it right, you can only put a stand on the marked spot? Reason I ask is because it looks like the is a small chunk of woods the belongs with the field? Could you set a stand there? Or maybe in one of the corners that has some timber? As far as how to hunt it, I would say you're gonna have to do some scouting, looking for paths and what not. Also if you have the means and time, I would say one good shot at directing deer you way, bush hog some lanes throughout the field. If its that's thick in there and the deer are using the field, I would bush hog some paths that go right in front of your stand. Deer are gonna take the path of least resistance as long as they feel safe, and you could definitely use that to your advantage.

    Stand location is very limited here. When we put the stand up, this was the only location we could put it. No other trees large enough.

    So you have 5-8 of thicket. Go and hunt it and see what you can learn. If you only have 1 stand location then hunt that.

    you might also want to make sure neighbors will allow you to recover a deer that makes it to there side of the property
    as IF they refuse, your screwed, and might NOT be worth hunting here!
    NOT to be a downer here, just giving some into to think about!

    If you cant put in a stand sounds like time to get a blind. They work very well.

    None of the trees off to the right side of the field are large enough for a stand? I agree with nomad, go hunt. Take a good pair of Binos and watch. You can learn from that. Also what Zach said is a good idea as well, the bush hog thought. Although that's advice I need to take, and find a bush hog somewhere to cut me some lanes through the field on my property. It grows thicker every year.
