Hello, my name is Andrew and I am a college student from the finger lakes region of upstate NY. Currently approaching the end of my second year of college two and a half hours from home, I have missed out on two fall whitetail seasons and two spring turkey seasons back at home. Having the constant drive to hunt and utilizing the diet that I do means I have to make good use of what hunting seasons I have access to in my current situation. Luckily I have access to some small sections of public land in close proximity to my college which is great. The problem is that these parcels are not only heavily hunted but also mostly all timber. I have studied onXmaps on my laptop through and through and usually make a good game plan to still hunt some ground. I like to consider myself somewhat stealthy in the woods but more often than not the deer see or hear me before i see them. Knowing you are predominantly a back country or open country hunter I know this is an odd question but do you have any tips to make me more successful in larger areas of mostly timber?
