Hey caper, hope you're scouting was successful. Sorry we didn't get you answered before you went out Here's a link to a post that was made a while back about scouting: http://www.biggamehunt.net/node/17884
If you are just begining, I suggest in the evenings I like setting up just inside a tree line that borders a crop field and in the morning I like getting close to a trail that leads to a bedding area. You can also try finding funnels, staging areas, oak flats, or other food sources which would make good stand sights
Hope this helps some, Good Luck
Here is a very handy and effective device I use to dispense corn with - but it could also be used to dispense any other seed or deer feed.
I had an old feeder that had a failed motor... I made a set of brackets to attach the feeder to the rear of the 4 wheeler - the lower one encircles the feeder and has a forward section with holes drilled in the outer ends of the bracket... these holes align with two 5/16" bolts that drilled into the rack of the 4 wheeler.
The upper bracket is an "L" shaped...
