    Right..I may just try some smaller plants this yr but I honestly really like this area..the only thing is I'm going to have to do a shit ton of work getting what I need to it...so I don't want to do that kinda work for a spot that isn't gonna be all too great..I think I'll just toss a few in small pots and check the spot as the season starts and if need by I can carry them in and back out ..I get so damn paranoid carrying a plant through the woods though...a lot of hunting where I'm from..you never know when you're gonna walk past a game camera.. although I ALWAYS cover my head and tattoos ..wear the same clothes and keep them outside the house.. even wear an old pair if shoes I keep hid in case they find a track to match...ppl make fun of me but i know a few ppl that got busted on camera..not to mention a game warwen or cops will set them up just to get u on camera ..but I don't worry bout that

    if i find those fucking cameras, i bust the fuckers, and leave them a note telling them they were tresspassing, and if i happen to see them, i'll shoot them. of course, i grow on private property that's posted. once you step on to someone else's property, or park property, then you gotta be smarter than the average bear

    It's always helicopter s here ..I kinda thought that was what they used everywhere...I'm sure they use planes too but mostly helicopters I'd say.. national guard heli is what they used on me... but I totally agree about planting like u say..it's just hard for me atm to find a spot like that..I lost my DL and sold my four wheeler.. stupid...and taking the amount of supplies needed is hard af around here.. literally mountains everywhere..and that's not the biggest deal for me..it's ppl seeing you ..it doesn't matter if you are walking/riding by the ppl around here are gonna see what's up..really rural and ppl keep up w there land here like someone is gonna steal it..I don't blame them honestly...my best friend is gonna let me borrow his wheeler to take my stuff into the woods though so that's a plus...lol I'm gonna have to get double sneaky going into this spot though..the only way into it now literally has 5 cameras.. security cameras..in the middle of nowhere..and I know they work from experience ... The land borders national Forest and a hunting lease...I know everyone on the lease and hate everyone of them...they tried to keep me off of it cause it has an awesome native trout steam going through it that I fished since I was a boy...but they won't ever keep me off it.. they figured that out...I ginseng up there too and always have a big back pack on ..so I can prob get by with carrying shit ln and out w.o too much hassle

    Yes, be careful. I lost 40 acres of my growing land last year, and it looks like another cousin is going to sell her 40. The new owners only camp once in a while, but they have game cameras up, and I haven't chanced it.

    I forgot to say that you should bring a compass when digging holes. If it's a cloudy day, you have a hard time finding south. Like Thumper, I always plant on the south side of a tree or big bush.

    Yea I ALWAYS have a compass w me..or an app w one..and that sucks man..I hate to hear that..it's hard moving shop to a new location a lot of the time..I usually always spend a lot of time in the areas I grow in to know where ppl are traveling through... hunting wise and other...I don't mean I am in there every week or anything but I like to get a feel of what is going on in that area...but I always like t stick a game camera or 2 around just in case I miss someone passing by.

    That's what I'm talking about! I love it..I can't quite do that..well I can if I go directly behind my home but it is literally almost impossible to be packing shit in that way...i would have to live in the woods ( which I have done and have been thinking about doing again) to be able to keep up with everything ...and I wasn't full blown Mick Dodgein it lol..but I spent all spring, summer, and part of fall in the woods when I was 18...I came out a few times a month to check on things but I really loved it..

    Most of my patches are a couple three miles from the house. Some of the land I grow on, I'm also hiking and camping on, so I'm there all the time. I just stay away from the patches when I'm not tending them. My cousin said I could camp, hike or anything on her land. I'm doing all of the above.

    Then when the pigs confiscate your computer they follow the electronic bread crumbs you've laid down and you get sent to the Gingerbread witch house with bars on the windows Hansel, and you end up in the wrong BROS GRIMM story!

    I'd add to your excellent post by saying, identify and consider the type of vegetation / trees in your prospective grow area. If the edge of your area has sapling growth that's 8' tall THIS fall, by next year it might be 12' tall and block lite.

    what bread crumbs? he's looking at a site that tells you when the sun comes up and goes down....you don't have to enter the long. and lat. of your patch....
    you seem like a fairly intelligent individual, but sometimes you let the paranoia get a little out of hand.
    this is far from the most populous weed website out there, and there are so many people on this site i can't keep up with all of them, see new "well known members" all the time. this means to me that there are a shit ton of people growing...way too many for the cops to be able to catch more than a small percentage of them. and while there are many places its still not legal (here, unfortunately) a lot of places have put a low priority on it. they don't want to catch you, you take up space meth heads and heroin junkies could be taking up.
    i'm not saying act like you're growing cabbage and don't take reasonable precautions, but i don't think there's a lot of reason to live in fear, as long as you take those precautions

    That's a reasonable opinion, but I should mention I was mostly goofing around with the bread crumb bit.

    I think people should do what they want and feel safe doing, but I'd remind you there are lots of people who still live and grow in areas that are heavily prohibitionist and cops there are extra douchy and need to pay for them donuts!

    this is true, there are good and bad cops, just like everyone else. i sure as hell don't advertise what i'm doing, no matter how much i think they don't want to bother with me. no point in pushing an issue
