I've been thinking of moving either my stand or feeder, or even both. I've mapped out in the picture below a few things.
There wasn't really anything wrong with last years set up, but I was very restricted on what I could see due to how thick everything is around me. My feeder was about 60-65 yards from the stand and is pretty close (to me at least) with a rifle. I haven't moved my stand yet, but did move my feeder with intentions of moving the stand next time out (to the Blue X). The more I look at the land, I'm thinking of clearing out the area in green, but I'm not sure if that area would be best to clear or the orange area would be best. With the orange I could set up two feeders. I'm waaaaay over thinking this lol.
I've had a camera on my feeder since I have moved it (Pink X) and have yet to have a single deer show up. It is close to my blind but last year I had deer walk 10' in front of my blind and not pay any attention to me. Only pigs, coons and a bobcat have shown up in ~2 weeks.
I've tried stepping off distances of the new options but its pretty hard with the brush. Either way if I make a change up from last year, i'll remove brush.
Where would yall move things around, if any?
Red X - Current blind location
Yellow X - Last years feeder location (~60-65 yards)
Pink X - current feeder location (moved it 2 weeks ago, Aug. 8)
Blue X - Blind location I've been thinking to move it to
White X - possible location to move feeder to if blind stays in the same location
Orange area - if blind moves to Blue X, will clear out
Green area - if blind stays, clear out
