|Looking west from the stone cairn. The second tree from the left is the Sugar Maple. This is the only one with any size that is on this property. As always, you can click on the photos to embiggen.|
Approximate dimensions 200 feet East-West and 100 feet North-South, which is very close to half an acre.
It will be impossible to provide "side cover" to the north and east due to the north facing slope and the gully. That might be OK.
The prevailing wind is from the west-southwest. The old-timers tell me that deer often bed with cover or elevation upwind of them, relying on their sense of smell to identify threats coming from that direction. They will be looking downwind relying on sight and sound in the directions their noses cannot smell.
