What is going on out there, anyone getting any deer, ..seeing any..?
Rut has started I see, rubs, scrapes etc...Juan has reilly sent the deer into small pockets here and there....Just have to scout to find those pockets
I don't bow hunt but I am scouting and seeing some signs but no animals yet. It really takes the small game season to go full out to change where the deer are going to go now that hunters are back in the woods. It has been very warm as well so the deer are probably moving at night more.
From the books that I have read, there is a lot of importance in knowing every nook and cranny of your hunting territory as well as the animal that you are hunting. So scouting as much as possible, just walking the land, will give you a good idea of what's around the corner or what's on the other side of a hill. Which can be very beneficial.
Making your own maps of human and deer trails, and different types of foliage such as group of pines,...
