We have been hunting this property for the last few weeks. The oats field seems to be the only crops around in the immediate area and is a magnet for hogs and deer. The oats are about waist high in places, now overgrown with other weeds, and difficult to transit as well as making it difficult to see the hogs. Movement through the oats is a noisy process unless you go very slow. Also helping hide the hogs is the terrain that undulates across the field. To make matters worse, there are only 2 safe directions of fire (north and east) and the prevailing wind from the south, making it hard to come around behind the hogs.

So this is a tough spot to hunt, but has been very productive for us. Last night, the hogs were out when we arrived and we came in from down wind and eventually worked our way around to a viable shooting solution.
