Of course the next year or two will be great, but for the first year? Ps 45 acres surrounded by mature pine hardwood mix.

I wouldn't be opposed to it every now and then, you can see really far and all. I wouldn't sit on it every hunt though

Probably would be a decent early season location. Later in the year depending on the pressure I would guess they won't be moving through there.

I'd also like to add that I'd hunt it mostly like a food plot, and only sit on it in the evening

What I like about cutovers are the edges...deer are drawn to walk the edges. Doe will meander out in the middle, but the bucks will skirt the edges. Killed many a deer at the edge of cutovers. We have a shite load of cutovers in south Arkansas.

Does this apply to newly logged woods? Loggers will be starting on mine around the start of hunting season. Is it a hunting hot spot or don't even bother?

Once it's quieted down a bit I'd probably hunt the edges of it sometimes in the evenings.

the best year we ever had was when we had fresh cutover. thought it would be better in the 2nd and 3rd year but it wasnt.. they're right about the edges, during the rut u should hunt it every day, mornings and evenings.. when the does are being chased they like open areas like that where they can run

I love a new cutover. First year is best year. Lot of people get pissed when their lease gets cut. I can't tell you how many times we've picked up clear cut land from someone that dropped it and piss slaughtered deer. Good deer.

This is encouraging. There's a possibility that my lease will get clear cut sometime during or right after this season. I almost switched to a different spot but it's such a good spot that I decided to stick it out and chance it.

When i was a young man I listened to the old timers and shied away from clear cuts for a couple years. Then I noticed a new cutover that had a shot ton of green growth busting out, so I decided to give it a shot. I have never looked back. Right after they cut it the damn deer will walk out through the middle of it like they still have cover. It's like they don't realize they are in the wide arse open. After a while they will stick the edges, but they are still coming to get the new growth.

My perm stand at the club is in the second year after logging in the middle of a cutover. I'm hanging on a huge white oak in the middle of about a 50 acre cutover. Pretty stoked this year, but wasn't great last year. Lots of bucks on camera, but nothing in daylight.

I learned my lesson the hard way. When I was about 14 the area my stand was in was clear cut and I begged my dad to move it. He tried to tell me to leave it, but being the expert magazine reader I was I knew that the deer wouldn't be out in the wide open after they cut it.

My uncle put a stand on the same damn tree I moved mine from and he and my cousin killed 3 deer each out of that stand the first year. The deer were eating the new growth while the brush tops were still smoldering.
