Scouting While Hunting
Buck Trail, MS> The famous Christmas Place has deer galore. Having deer does not mean that you will kill a giant buck or even see one, but they are there. The big deer I took at the upper end of the lake shows that a little perseverance will pay off. In fact, I have picked out three more places around the lake that I want to hunt next year. Remember, Big Bucks have Wet Feet.
Last week while everyone was out hunting, Denise sat on the back porch of the camphouse and a big buck slowly grazed across the backyard as he looked for does.
Sometimes they are not as deep in the woods as you think. A great place to hunt may be only a
hundred yards from your back door. I have hunted and taken a bunch of big deer while hunting within sight of someones house.
Vary your trail coming out from your stand to inspect trails, hooks, scrapes and check out any little open areas in the woods for a potential stand. Good Luck to everyone for the rest of the season.
