Outside property access

  1. Having an outside access road along the border of your property is essential to getting to key areas of your land without busting deer out to your neighbors. When we bought our land, there was an access road running right down the middle. So whenever we would head in to work on a food plot or go in to sit a stand, we would always be busting deer in an outward direction. To fix this problem we used an excavator to make a road around the outside edge of our property. By keeping the most of our human activity on the outside, we hope to keep the deer feeling safe on the inside.

    We took all the debris from downed trees and brush and piled it on the inside of the roadway with the excavator so that our movements are somewhat hidden. We plan to go along and further block the view by hinging everything within 10yds of the road in a paralel manner. This will hopefully create a living brushpile and hide the road even more.

    It looks a little rough now, but once things dry up, we will be able to level it out a bit and plant a nice grass roadway to get to our stands and food plots.
    Also, notice my neighbors stand on the right... Guess he won't be glassing into my property anymore!
