Deer Diary: How to Keep a Hunting Journal (feature article)

I keep a fairly detailed journal of my outdoor excursions.
I note Deer sightings and include location, terrain type, time of day, weather previously and post sighting, moon phase, activity of deer when sighted and food source that it was feeding on among other events that I may add so as to attempt to determine why that Deer was there doing what they were doing at that time..
I find patterns quickly emerge using this information and can be clearly seen when transferred to a map. This helps alot when looking at other locations to hunt. However Deer are Deer so nothing is completely fool proof with them !!! Yes
