The little 10 acre "island" of woods I hunt is in the middle that is usually half corn half beans. This year it is all beans. Is it worth my time to hunt this woods this year?
Great observation - I've seent he same thing, likely because the deer hang out in the woods instead of the corn, and we hunt the woods not the corn.We do much better on the farm we have in Dexter, when the rotation is for beans than corn. Just our observation. FRANK
:yeahthat:Deer love beans during the late season! I'm sure deer will be using that island, but whether you should hunt it really depends on if you can get in and out without being detected. In the past I'm going to guess the deer bedded in the corn, now that its not there they might be bedding in that island. Morning hunts will probably be a bust, deer will be in the beans feeding and you'll most likely bust them all out of there on your walk in. But it sounds like it could be an evening hotspot, especially late season. I would just set up on the fringes to avoid jumping anything bedded down in there.
