Alright guys, I figure there is more whitetail hunting knowledge in this forum than anywhere else on the planet. I just joined a lease in South Texas and won't have much time at all to go scout the property. So, I'm relying on Google Earth, and limited knowledge about blinds / feeders etc... Question - Without any additional information, if you had to place a pop-up or tripod stand anywhere on this topo map, where would it be. This is really just for fun. I know this is probably the worst way of doing it. I've been whitetail hunting for 15 years. I'm just curious if there is a consensus on where a good starting point would be just look at topo info.

I would look at an satellite image from Google maps before a topo map.

A little past the end of that road in the SE corner. Always carry a side arm and be able to speak minimal Spanish.

I'm using google earth as well. Was just curious if there was a consensus on the topo. Google earth image attached.

Google earth is the greatest tool you can have given the lack of time you have to scout. Go back through the history (yearly images) to find where prior stand location were. That might give you a good idea of where you might want to start.

There's feed pens set in those food plots on the west side. That's where I'd be unless they were already being used. In that case I'd probably road feed about 600 yards of one of those senderos and sit in the middle.

Somewhere close to the intersection of the two drainages in the NW section of the pasture where the pipeline/ROW cuts across heading NW and into what looks like an old field or open pasture.

that's exactly what I was thinking based solely on the topo map originally put in OP. Still agree after seeing the satellite image too.

Google corn bag. I havent hunted over for so long I cant remember. Walk or drive down a sendero tricklin corn and wait. If they are not in a high pressure area they will stop to eat for sure. Simple as pie.
