Re: How Quickly Deer Seek Safety
After telling myself that scouting was the priority and not hunting you probably would think I am lying if I told you that most places a buck beds, a good buck anyhow, is almost bullet proof. Hes bedding there because many factors come into play, usually what he cant smell, he can see. I have found some beds where theres no way you could approach from up wind cause if you tried it, they had you pegged visually and could get up and leave before you ever knew they were bedding in that area.
When I say a spot the size of a car is big enough to hold a big buck, I am overstating size. If they can get into a pile of grass, see, smell, hear, catch thermals... good luck.
What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!
