Need help with this place

Unread postby Thermals » Mon Oct 20, 2014 2:36 pm

Here is the farm I been hunting for year but it ha been a hard places to hunt, last year I took a 130 buck from it. On the map I have a rub line marked up and boy it is a good one, the same rubs were there late winter when scouting and I found a good set I sheds in the marsh area. But I have looked over that whole area and can not find a bed last year and went out for a hunt tonight and I still believe that he is not bedding in that marsh, because it is down in a bowl. There is big tracks that come from across the creek coming right thru the little ditch and the rubs are everywhere up thru there. I did not go across to see if he is in the strip of trees to the south or maybe on that point on the creek. I may go tomorrow and scout it out and least I can find it and come back late season and try a hunt.

Man, that is an interesting looking property.

I just seen this. If you didn't end up going out there I would leave it alone. It should be a good spot during the rut and the immediate pre rut. He could be bedding in that strip of trees in the field to the south or on that point on the river bend. It looks like there may be an island along that point. If so I would definitely be looking in there, but right now is not a good time to be poking around. That spot should be heating up any day now.

I did not get the picks loaded to photobucket yet.
I found a few good beds right in the cattails and going south to the strip of trees I found two beds at each end and the one closes to the creek the beds had rubs next to them and it looks like the exit trail comes straight across thru the corn to the creek. I am not sure if it is the same buck making all of the rubs around the marsh. I went and check the point on the creek with no beds found, it looks different in person than the map. On the way back to the other side I stumbled across two nice beds in a big island in the creek, they are almost wore to the dirt. The one bed I sat in that has a huge pile o logs behind them that washed down the creek and Locke up against the tree, when sittin the in his bedhe can watch across the creek and see me coming down the road I walk down go figure and he has a nice trail out and you would never see him. But I think I should focus my hunting back by the marsh it has some of the best sign I have ever seen.my biggest thing to figure out is the thermals being this marsh is in a valley it is like that thermal hub where everything is sucked down to him. I am going to get a pic from a distance tomorrow and show the spot where I think I can hang a stand and keep the thermals from him if not I will have to hunt from the ground as the trees are only 10 feet tall and all bushy. I will report back
