** 9.** You've found the mother lode: an alfalfa field undiscovered by other hunters, with deer piling into it every afternoon. Two hollows channel into it from higher ground, joining at a plateau covered with honeysuckle, scattered cedars, hardwood saplings, and low berry bushes. Above the bench lies rugged terrain and a thick, overgrown clear-cut. How should you hunt the spot?
A. Set up on the field across from the hollows before sunrise and watch. If there are deer here in the afternoon, it should be even better in the morning
B. Take a stand in early afternoon at the edge of the field between the two hollows where the deer filter in
C. Forget the field, hollows, and bench; you'll spook deer here no matter how you hunt. Put on a drive in the rough, overgrown clear-cut as soon as it's legal shooting light
D. Hang a stand on the downwind side of the bench several hundred yards above the field. Sneak into it early in the afternoon. Hunt till dark
