    1 piece of woods of about 200 acres, along with several other bow hunters. Gun season is nuts. I also have a couple stands in small patches barely legal from housing developements. Hot spots come gun season, I use the bow in these spots. Everything is low ground, sometimes flooded up so you need a canoe to get to the stand, hip boots are the norm. There's little elevation change, perhaps 10' at most in the whole area.

    one spot i hunt in is about 500+ ac. of public land and it just me and one other for bow season. my other spot is a huge area and i dont even know how big it is....there could be 100 people in it during bow season and we would never see each other...... just the way i like it!
