My land layout

Postby buckcrazy » Thu May 04, 2017 1:37 pm

Finally got a decent aerial of the property I just bought and figured I'd give y'all a sneak peek before I make food plots and what not.
Let me know if y'all have any suggestions. The north part is bottomland that will hold a little water when the Souinlovey Creek rises but does drain well.
The trees on the left side of the pond is where the bedding area is that I am going to put the homesite once I clear some trees. The east side of the pond is not suitable for building but would've been ideal.

How old is the growth of the trees and is mostly hardwood or pines.

The land is mixed with some being 15-18 year old pine some 4 year old pine just south of the pond that is about 6 ft tall and thick as all get out and some hardwoods on the north side.

Looks like you will have several goods places to have food plots but it's hard to really see from the picture what the land looks like but I marked in orange the places I think might be good plot areas. Good luck with it and waiting to see where you place them.Image

Jv, looks like you planting plots right where the house will be. Lol, it's hard to tell by the photo.

Close, you don't have to walk that far to hunt..lol...he said the land south of the pond was real thick so I would put a plot south of the thick stuff but of course that depends on how far from the house that would be, but wouldn't want it right at the house.

Where you marked the plot is exactly where I'm planning to put the house, lol!
I hate that it's the only location to put it close to the pond because it's an awesome spot. The three to the east are good locations. In fact the second mark is where I put one of the banks feeders last weekend. I'm planning to plant that entire thinned lane where the feeder is. It's almost 250 yds long. Thinking about trying clover because that area is shady and not much grows in predominant shade.

Well I was just placing them where it looked like a good place to me. Deer love those places where the woods are real thick so that's why I put a food plot there. This hard to tell by just looking at a photo.

Yeah the aerials I find are almost 3-4 years old so they really don't show how the landscape really looks. In fact, I'm not fully going to trust google earth anymore. The area east of the pond shows a 30-40 ft height elevation change from the pond level but is actually 30-40 lower elevation. Don't understand how it could be that much of a difference but it is.

Looks like a nice piece of land. You should get a lot of enjoyment for a lot of years.
You might want to take note of any areas that serve as funnels on and off your land onto neighbors.
