inside corners are comfortable for deer cause there is cover close on 180 degrees. Thats why I asked about the small plots cause cover is close 360 degrees. So its more comfortable and maybe that would make the big boys show in shooting hrs or visit more often. Just me thinking which gets me in trouble sometimes. And I learning that the shape of the plot can be more inviting to the deer. The hour glass shape is suppose to be best. then there is the orientation to north for optimum plant growth.
