Stands for the rut

This is a 175 acres farm land with some slight hills. I like the two stands I picked for rut. Trying to catch them moving from one big woods to the other. They go through these little patches of woods to stay under cover. Let me know what else you guys like about this farm. Thanks!

Hard to be very confident without some on ground knowledge but I like the bigger section of timber in the SW corner. Especially where it pinches down on the south line headed east.

For rut, I am mostly interested in bigger sections of timber in ag that connect and are contiguous.

That spot on the SW pinches down to a Oak flat. Great spot and the does are always there. Not much cover though so the bucks dont show up in daylight. I know the spots I marked dont connect into a funnel but you can see where it would still funnel them through connecting the woods across the road.
