    The other day I posted a picture of the land that I hunt. (pic below)
    My poll question is who would now that the corn and the alpalpha are now being cut would you get into the woods and find a trail or continue to hunt the foot plots where I have seen deer come in and out in the hopes that a buck is following?

    corn may be cut but how many rigs get ALL the corn? normally there’s some on the ground or even better, when the load up the trucks to haul it, there are normally piles of corn. find those and hunt it.

    the deer are going to pick through the cut corn for awhile yet.

    I would continue to hunt the edges. The deer are gonna keep coming until they know that there is nothing left.

    The farmer just plowed the feild so I dont think there is any corn left. That was my first thought as far as hunting the edges of the corn but since there is no corn I thought that they may only go and feed on the alpalpha now or just hang in the woods?

    well you didn’t say the plowed it….. in that case i’d try and find a funnel between the two somewhere they can go and get to both easily.

    I like the wooded patch between the corn and the alfalfa. [=}=]

    If cut for silage I do not think there is alot of feed left in field, but if combined & worked it’s still area they will forage (specially if used a John Deere combine) ;) If there is standing corn in area they will move to that.

    I would sit out a couple nights just to see what new pattern is & adjust from there.

    Note: we give neighbors bad time that their JD combine throws more over them our international. Thats why they have more wildlife in their fields.

    The corn fields are plowed so I dont know how much they are going to use it to feed from but I thought about sitting there just to see if anything comes out.

    Is there an intersection where you could sit between the alphafa and the corn fields? If so I would say that would be your best bet or just sit one night and see what the deer do then a couple days later check it out again. In the evening when I can’t hunt I usually always drive by the properties that I hunt just to see if the deers movement is still the same. I’ve been able to hunt in some prime spots just because of scouting the deer
