Although I had no intentions of hunting today, I knew it would be a perfect opportunity to set a stand in the place I found yesterday. Although it’s about an hour and twenty-five minutes from they house, I knew I had to take advantage of the pouring rain and do it while I could not leave any scent behind, especially with the forecasted 70 degree temps over the next two weeks.

I started work early and go into the woods by 3:00 p.m. I made quick work of putting the stand up and felt confident about it. I have it in between three trees, offering great cover. On one side there is a double scrape, and it has been hit a little bit already this year. On the other side is a four-trunked oak tree. I’ve always had great luck around trees like this. I’m not sure if it’s because the trees produce more nuts, or maybe the nuts just taste better from those types of trees. It’s not often that you find them, but if you do, I’d recommend looking closely to see if there’s a lot of deer sign around them.

Here are the oaks and the scrapes. This is my sight to the left and the right of the stand. After getting it up, I was pretty happy with out it turned out. First picture is of the scrape.

The scrape from the stand. There are actually two of them.
