    Used to have a spot like that before I moved..... now my favorite spot is my king sized bed, and the weapon has given way to the tv remote.

    What part of the country is that? I'm gonna guess upper midwest.

    it is about a 150 foot flat circle plateau at about 3500 ft elevation in virginia.

    That must have been a brier-patch ten years ago, Dog. A thicket, at best unless raising your leg on those little trees keeps them stunted.

    Actually, there is a lot of open woods like that here in NOrthern VA. Not at all too hard to find. Wish I had more time to spend rooting around behind the roadside verges where the poison ivy and briars like to grow.

    its hard to tell in picture but the tree you can see at left of my boot it is a chesnutoak that is over 3 ft in dimeter.the picture i title better view has a oak on right side that is about 20 incher.but most of the trees are red maple.the truth about the flat spot is it was a old landing sight from about 1970 ish.i have white pine trees that reach 4 ft in diameter and are 100 ft tall.it is a great place to hunt.i am pruning up all the white oaks and i fertlizer them too.also this area is surrounded with grapevines.....can you say turkeys.....lol...and grouse.
