    It's amazing what you can walk past hundreds of times and never see. That's my favorite part about hunting is finding new places I've never seen before. Lucky for you it was on your own property.

    Yup, Honey hole forsure.

    That spot will be a magnet for bucks to be scent checking in the coming weeks. I'm sure all the locals does go there, Bucks from far and wide will be checking out that apple tree leaving scrapes.

    wow that is awesome. I've thought of planting some apple trees at my camp, but figure I'll be long gone before they actually produce anything.
    Glad it wasn't a freezing cold windy day while you were standing there for 15min showing off to the bush

    I would go ahead and plant ASAP, I planted about 15 dwarf apple trees about 15 years ago. I have lost half over that period but they started producing apples about six years after I planted.

    species,

    Is this land an old over grown early settlers farm?

    It is so. There is an old stone barn foundation that has 50+ year old trees growing inside the original barn footprint

    i found something like this on the weekend in a way. there's a massive swamp in the back of this property we hunt on and i know for a fact all these deer and bedding somewhere in there deep and using it to come back and fourth from other properties to this one. well my uncles and my dad use to go here for duck hunting and use to have to use a canoe to get in for ducks.

    this weekend i was determined to get back there to see how much water there is and if it would be a doable spot for deer or not, brought the one handed dewalt saw cut a few branches and small shrubs out of the way and i was in.. almost 0 water, everything has been covered in VERY thick moss and its way more open then i ever thought it was. LOTS of dog weed. i asked my dad whos been hunting this property for decades and he said no ones been back there for over 20 years because everyone thought it was all water and flooded. put up a blind so will see next week!
