Q:
I'm hunting a 40 acre plot of land in NJ. There are blue berries in the middle of the plot and corn on the edges. If you were a deer which one would you be in the most? I have set up along the corn for the past week and seen nothing moving. Any ideas?

What I would probably try is to set up on the downwind side of the blueberry patch at the edge of the corn. Find a spot with some good shooting lanes and build a small ground blind from what's already there--(but don't damage the farmer's crop). If you don't see anything there, try stalking from the downwind side up through the corn to the blueberries. While you move, watch for deer sign--you might just stumble on the perfect ambush point.

Typo on my post first line should read -
"Since you are NOT seeing deer along the edges the deer are deep in the field."
Sorry about that.

I know firsthand that deer like blueberries. But they also like corn. So that is what makes the use of cameras so nice. Through the miracle of pictures, all can be revealed.

Focus on the corn;
Since you are seeing deer along the edges the deer are deep in the field.
On a windy day stalk across rows into the corn looking for bedded or standing deer in each row as you move. I have killed many deer doing this. Modern deer expect danger from trees along field edges they don't expect danger while lounging deep in the corn.

I have heard that deer love blueberries, but I dont know that for sure. I know they like corn. Cant hurt to check the blueberries.

By the process of elimination, I think I'd try the blueberry patch. I know that I like sweet stuff like blueberrier, so maybe the deer are the same way. Good hunting.
