that "L"shape is great for inside corners

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

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.
