I have access to the property in red. It is 100 acres and is in corn. The yellow areas are void of corn and is made up of tall grass. It's basically shallow depressions that do not get planted. Would you hunt these areas? How? The back corner, the wooded area, is connected to a larger woods that does not get hunted because it is county owned. This is the parcel where my camera was ripped off. Thanks guys.

I like the looks of that fencerow running N and S... connecting the two woodlots. I would definitely think about hanging a stand right where that grassy depression runs into the fencerow. Hopefully Gern chimes in on this one. He's an expert on hunting big bucks in the corn.

Those surface drainages in yellow will for sure be buck travel routes. Since the woods at the NW corner gets no pressure, the further back you set up probably the better.
