|Overlook of Stand Location from Pasture Above|
Here is a standing East - looking West view of the stand. Hopefully shadows from the canyons to the East of the stand will keep the sun off me until 9:00 a.m. or so. In the evenings, the stand will be on the shady side of the tree.
|North-East view from Stand|
To the right you will see the view overlooking a trail coming up from the river bottom.
I hope to see a big buck following a doe up this trail as she leaves the crop fields to the North in the morning.
|View to the East|
Looking East over the grassy bench between the River and canyons. I envision more than one seeking-phase buck strolling across this bench
towards my strategically placed decoy.
|Southwest Shooting Lane|
The view off my back-right shoulder keeps me from being surprised by deer coming from the West. It is also a quartering-away shot opportunity if I have towait on a buck to pass by me heading the other direction.
|South Shooting Lane|
I tried leaving as many branches as possible covering my South shooting lane. I expect the majority of the deer to walk either East or West through this gap. There is a heavy trail just below the gap in the "V" between the tree limbs that is not visible in the picture.
