I agree 100% with Muddy, 7 acres there are only likely 2, maybe 3 good stand spots in that 7 acres. Leave it alone and hunt the big public stuff until things start getting fun around Nov 2,3,4... then go and sit all day. The major trails should be paralleling the creek bottom... pick a hog trail and sit on the high side, if you get blown or see something happening else where on the property get down and move. If the deer are moving stick it out as long as you can

perty much what i said about the termals. ;) your more of a rut hunter it seems, im a "bed" hunter as they call it ;)

I hunt the "odds"... I hunting bedding areas from Sept-Mid Oct or super secluded low pressure food, then I transition to travel cooridors between bedding areas/food or doe bedding areas, then I hunt rut funnels, then I hunt the best quality food source I can find come Dec.

With 7 acres your options are so limited. I would go low impact, hang a couple of stands and hunt with the wind in your favor. Figure out if the deer are transitioning through there or living there. Hunt and get out, you don't need to scout on 7 acres you can do that from the stand as you are hunting. Sometimes successful hunting is a product of what we don't do.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

Got the bachelor group above patterned pretty good they cross the creek at the same spot every morning walk up the trail toward the backyard and graze on the crab apples between 8-930 almost every morning but to get to the creek they have to cross my stand not sure if ill take one of them yet as I would like to think there's a bigger one around there. I'll be checking the cam and laying out some more corn this wkend or next depending on weather.

for now until they split up and the food scorces change then it will get tricky
