What do you do to make security better? I assume you cut trees and pile brush or something. But I'd be intrested in specfics from anybody who does this.

Security can be obtained in several ways... Keeping the hunting pressure to a minimum is probably the top way. Its hard for most hunters not to over hunt there land, but they need to realize the less they hunt the land the higher quality each hunt will be. Most mature bucks tolerate very little pressure. Timing and patience are key. ;)

Some bedding areas can be enhanced by determining why the buck is bedding in that specific location and enhancing on that feature. For example if he is bedding on a ridge point looking over a valley he wants visibility below, and thick cover above.
Sometimes you can create bedding areas in spots that have some features but need others to become bedding. Such as falling a tree horizontally at the right position on an otherwise open ridge can create a buck bedding spot... Sometimes a piece of cover looks great but is to small... Adding certain thick high growing grasses along the edge can create enough security to create a bedding area.
