First off I hope each and everyone of you had a successful hunting season! As some of you know this last hunting season was my first year on my new property. I purchased the property back in May 2015 and shortly after I installed a new feeder taking the place of an old feeder that the previous owner had standing yet it had been dry for a while. I basically went with that for the season.
First real off season I am looking at going to a completely different location of my property to add more options and adding another feeder and etc.
as you can see this particular location is wooded with mesquites, Oaks and tons of Broom weed from all of last years rain. In the picture of the large oak tree it seems someone started sinking T post I'm guessing to make a feeder pen however it's only 5ft x 10 ( very small if it was going to be one ) I have since removed those poles.
I was thinking about moving 15 to 20 feet out under the tree and making a larger Feeder pen and at the opposite end in the picture installing another box blind. Another idea was to follow through with moving the feeder pen 15 to 20 feet out under the tree yet I figured I could utilize the tree and install a Treestand up in the tree and hunt that way.

What is yalls thought?

Another question all of that broom weed! Would you cut it down or leave it but just remove the part where the feeder pen is?
Didn't know if more natural would help or not.

Can't see your pics. The small area with tpost may have been for a hog trap. I would try to builda big feed pen about 30-50 feet from the tree and if you have to halfway destroy a big oak to put up a tree stand I would say don't do it, especially if you don't have a bunch of big oaks

Can't see the photos either. Something to consider in pen placement is that if you put it under the tree canopy, it will be much harder to see what is there at first light and at dusk.

Your pics may be too big; down-size them, and try again (over 1024 x 1024 is usually too big).

also, broomweed is worthless/toxic insofar as browse/nutrition is concerned - get rid of it and get something else going.

How do you get rid of it? I know you can mow it down however it still comes back from what I hear?

Google it. Need to get it in spring when it is green shoots and starts growing. We just have it where the cows hang out the most.

Our best luck has been mowing it down, waiting about a week, and then spraying the shoots as they're starting to grow again. Couple/few weeks later we'll plow.
