First and foremost, once again I apologize for the lack of posting lately. I’ve been very busy this summer! As many of you know, I’m also a general contractor and summer is busy season for me. Add the fact that I am equally busy working land analysis for individual hunting grounds, and you’ll see that Marc is a busy boy! Because of the lousy economy, I also don’t have many sponsors for this website yet (although I do have the traffic) which prevents me from paying someone to maintain it for me.
As of now, everything comes out of my pocket with the exception of some of the door prizes. Having said that, it can be a little slow here. Rest assured, I’m alive and working hard to bring you free material that hopefully will aid you in your quest this year for harvesting some quality deer.
Finding the bedding areas for your early season strategies can sometimes throw your line of thinking off a bit! I’m finding that many people just assume these bedding areas are in the timber and hidden deep in some unknown areas. Not so! I want you to look at these pictures and observe the openness of these exposed bedding areas. Although these are all does in these photos, I can assure you you’ll find equal amount of big bucks in the same habitat and configurations. Bedding areas that are close to food and water don’t have to be in the timber! If you’re using the 200 yard rule, don’t exclude open fields! Look closely at these pictures because in some of them, all you can see are the eyes.
For those of you who aren’t aware, you can click on each photo several times to enlarge the image! You may have to in order to see the deer.
