Another question, My buddy and i found a great trail (well i first saw it and took us on it );) jk! haha! But we found a trail that led us to what we think is going to be a prime spot for a couple stands next year. The trail was littered in feces i lost count of how many separate spots we found it in, over 25 "piles" for sure though, it was through a somewhat thick thicket, with some openings as we went thru, I had to get on my hands and knees at times, (no sheds were found)
but my question is, would this be a bedding area like a long the trail? I wasn't sure what we had found, it kinda looked like their were some beds, but if i recall deer get up and out of bedding areas to urinate/poop correct? If that is the case was this just a really used trail that the deer are using to stay concealed from predators? We followed it to a thin section of woods that was littered in more feces trails and rubs from last year, and was right by a small, good flowing creek, corn field, and through the other side of the woods was a even bigger and thicker thicket. We didn't have enough time to go check it out
this weekend hopefully we will though! We are thinking we have found a great spot to set some stands up for the fall, and we were really excited!! I just wanted to what you guys/gals thought we have come across and how to set up appropriately? Also we are going to be planting a 1-2 acre field of clover/alfalfa right by this trail (we were planning on doing this before we found this trail) as well as putting a few "Secret spot" plots in the woods where ever we decide to set up, thanks for any info!!! Yesterday was a lot of fun!!
