Just recently acquired permission to a 1400 acre lease that for the most part is about 900 acres of pasture. This style of hunting goes against anything and everything that I have ever done but it has produced many big bucks over the yrs. There are fence rows, pinch points, and funnels literally everywhere. On top of that, there are multiple little woodlots ranging anywhere between 3-250 acres scattered throughout. The farmer bushhogs every other year, with this year being an off year for mowing and I bump deer almost every time I enter the pasture. I've also been running cameras for the last few weeks and every good buck is in the pasture edges and not in the larger wood blocks. Y'all got any tips for this type of hunting?

Use the wind and hunt the funnels and edges
I grew up hunting farm land like that and it can be a pain to get it all figured out but when you do it's great hunting

Hunted a place like that in Furman. You will see more good bucks along the edge of the fields and cutting the corners than you will in the woods. If you get a good rut it will be absolutely nuts. Deer will be everywhere in those fields. Good luck sir!

My experience hunting around cows,deer tolerate them in the open pastures, but will not in the woods. When the white oaks are dropping acorns the cows camp out under them sucking them up as fast as they fall. YMMV

Get up high on a corner where you can see two edges. Or just get high as you can stand where you can see the most.

Screw in steps up a tall oak tree overlooking the pasture and as many pinch points as possible. Don't install a box stand now or tripod unless you want the deer to avoid you like the plague.

Entry is going to be critical for you.
I’ve boogered up pasture and CRP deer and not even known I’d boogered them up.
They feel very safe in tall grass but you can bump them so easily.
If there’s a ditch with not much water in it, it can be gold as far as getting in undetected.
I figured that out too late to help me. Maybe it will help you.

Welcome to my world of hunting...ive had best luck using wind and edges...u risk to much entering a 20-40 acre patch of woods round here cuz wind swirls or the bucks r up high and see u way before u see them...set up on wood line in a good spot till rut then set way off wood line in field

Same as anywhere else. They bed in a thicket and travel to food. You figure out the two and get in the middle. Hunt the wind and keep the pressure as low as possible.

Yes

One of the absolute best places I've ever hunted was just outside Auburn. That was nearly 30 years ago. It was a 200 acre horse farm. There were large water oaks in the pastures and deer would pour out of the surrounding woods to feed in the afternoons. I've saw as many as 67 deer in one afternoon on that farm. I had 3 8 points and a 10 point at 30 yards under a tree one afternoon while bow hunting and couldn't get a shot on any of them. One of them would look at me while the other 3 ate acorns. I killed my first deer with a bow the next afternoon. A basket racked 8. If I had known ANYTHING about hunting back then I could have killed some fine, fine bucks the two years that I got to hunt that place.

Borrow the farmers truck. The deer will pay it no attention.

Hunt from the truck or a tractor in the am, evening on field edge, but when it starts to get cold I'd slowly work my stand depper in the timber maybe 50-100 yrds per hunt till I found the sweet spot.
