Ok so i have two different places i can hunt and was wondering if yall mided looking at em. The First is my grandmothers land just out side of gratis ohio.
The Land is located in the yellow lines. The blueish dotted line is a creek that runs through the land

Both!! First option has more land but more surrounding neighbors (hunters?), Second seems to be more rural. Pick the one with the least surrounding hunting pressure. Both look very nice to me from the air but only leg work can tell the real story.

They both have about equal land. I don't know much about how much pressure there is around either of em I do no the second place no one has knowingly hunted that land in quite a few years probaly around 5 to 10 years. Have only seen tracks so far this year no rubs or scrapes at either place

:wink:You answered your question! It's number two hands down. I still think you need to hunt both. I myself have many properties to hunt so I can stay on the hottest sign. That said I will still fall back and hunt some areas just because they over the years even with little sign just have the right make up that every year I know a bruiser is going to walk through at some point in time. Nothing anyone can tell you in opinion or guidance can trump old fashion leg work and time spent in the field however a property that has not been hunted in 5+ years all would say they would be all over that one.

I agree, I'd work them both. I hunted Sycamore SP just NE of your families land. It holds some good bucks but is a tough hunt because a lot of it is tall grass fields w/ strips of trees, most of which are too small for a tree stand.
Just work them both and I would hunt the ones where the neighboring properties do see some hunting pressure as they will push the deer to your land.

Good luck.
