5 year old buck +
I have a box blind set up 100 yards across the field facing the sawtooth oak tree with mock scrape , and my Tree plot of Crabapples and pears are to the right of the sawtooth oak. The earliest Crabs and pears were only planted in 2020 so not really a draw yet, although a few of my whitetail crabs had a few fruit this year. The funny thing is last year the first week of rifle season I got a picture of the biggest buck I had on camera that year at this field edge mock scrape at 8:30 am one morning !. The wind wasn't right so I hunted a treestand that day !. So yeah not the best spot , but I'll keep one there...can't hurt anythingIt depends. Do you want it to inventory the most deer on the farm or a spot to possibly kill a buck? A field edge may be a great spot to get the most pictures but you might get a lot at night (i.e. when you aren't hunting). Every property is different. Maybe you have a funnel or transition or a staging area that a buck might feel secure enough to hit in day light. Hunting immediately after a rain might be a good time or finding a trail or active food nearby might be options.
