Post-Season Scouting

Postby scotman » Sun May 04, 2008 3:09 pm

In the March Issue the article "Post-Season Scouting" by Bill Vaznis really motivated me to get out in the woods more often. I been hunting the same area for 20 years but though I know every deer trail and bedding area the bucks always seem to trick me. I have my garmin colorado coming in the mail tommorow so I will put it through some extreme use mapping all the trails and beddings areas out. All I need to do is nail down the Bucks core areas.Thanks Bill for the tips and added inspiration.

I just started spring turkey hunting, and I'm starting to think that half of the value of spring turkey hunting is what you learn about deer.  I've found some good looking spots to put up stands, some I've never even considered the area before.

my favorite time to scout is at the end of winter when the snow is still on the ground. you can really learn a lot by following tracks in the snow and its really easy to figure out the way the deer move
