Hi yall im new on here first post. I recently got a new 80 acre deer lease in oklahoma. The terrain is really diverse for such a small area and im having problems pin-pointing where the bucks may be traveling/bedding. the lease has a large creek fed pond, but i have circled it repeatedly and seen no prints to show they are drinking there. the creek that feeds it is 10 feet below heavily wooded area and mostly mud. there is also a large open area in the middle of the area that i have put a corn feeder on and seen only does. much of the property is covered in heavy thickets. any ideas where the big boys may be callin home? oh and there are atv trails going through the heavily wooded area would only does be using this trail this time of year? any ideas?

thanks for the advice, i appreciate it. i have heard several rumors about a supposedly big big racked buck on the property, is it true the older bucks hang out in the thickets and scrub for the most part before pre rut? should i try to catch him leaving the thick brush to the water source this early?

yes there are rubs randomly placed on the top of a small ridge where the creek has washed it out on the opposite side of the creek of the thickets, have not seen any on thicket side though. havent seen a fresh rub yet , looks like last years or before. just checked my trail camera and i had over 200 pictures of 6 different does exiting a heavy doe trail into the open area my corn feeder is in, nice to get some pics finally

thats a good idea on the google earth, i completely forgot about that article in field and stream. i sat in my stand by a trail with heavy doe activity last sunday and on my way out (doeless) i found a very distinct rub route that got me real excited. when i head out i am going to move my camera to this area and see what happens. i saw a big bodied buck only a six point though leavin the thickets and wandering through the creek bed out of bow range last weekend. it was still cool to see the first buck of the year though, he was walking pretty fast and head to ground somewhat carefree so i feel good about how comfortable the deer in the area are with their surroundings
