If you had your choice
I thought about this today as I noticed acorns falling off a tree in my yard today.
Where is it you would prefer to hunt whitetalis ?
Under an acorn tree ( where I got mine last yr)...food plot...your feeder, if allowed, ect... Places like that. Sure it's gonna be different for different parts of the country. but what the hey !
10 days to the hunt.

I guess if I a choice, it would be a wooded area adjacent to a decent sized field or food plot.
Maybe they come close to, or can be grunted within bow range.
Either way, then I'd at least get to watch deer. Sometimes that's enough for me.

I prefer to hunt around oak trees. But if those are not available I will hunt inbetween 2 cornfields were they have plenty of room to bed.

How about an Oak ridge thats raining acorns, located between a foodplot and just off of a bedding thicket where three majors draws or ridges meet.
Whenever I seem to find a decent area, if I look a little harder, there's almost always another/better location that seems to combine even more factors to raise your odds of encountering a mature deer during legal shooting light. It's also been my experience that these locations are very very rarely located where the buck would be exposed to a fairly open area during daylight so this generally rules fields and plots out, especially this early in the season.
Good luck and good shootin'
