Hinge Cut Update

Unread postby Thunderchicken » Sat Feb 11, 2017 11:25 am

Me and Tom walked my aunts property where we started a hinge cut last year. We were pleasantly surprised with the activity in just 8 short months. Rubs, beds, and trails utilizing the new cover strategically placed! We probably counted about 30 or so rubs from 10" trees on down. It didn't get much hunting pressure this year maybe 5 sits total.

This year were adding an interior waterhole and planting around 60 cedars and a dozen fruit trees. We will continue with the hinge along the field edge and follow up on our trees in the center of the property we missed last summer! Its very encouraging to see what it will evolve into!! What's everybody else doing?? Anybody been out scouting or getting a game plan for next year?

Sounds good Jay. It's taking shape and hopefully you get rewarded soon. I was out today scouted 2 pieces I always tonget in and found stands and it blinds in both. Not ideal.
